Egypt: Death Penalty/Possible imminent execution: Nissan 'Abd al-Nabi Sulayman

, Index number: MDE 12/015/1999

On 10 April 1999 the Mansura Criminal Court sentenced Nissan ‘Abd al-Nabi Sulayman to death for her involvement in the murder of her husband in December 1997. The Mufti, the highest religious authority in Egypt, now has 10 days to decide whether to approve the sentence. Nissan ‘Abd al-Nabi Sulayman therefore faces imminent execution.
