Palestinian Authority: Death penalty/Legal concern - Raji Saqir.
Raji Saqir was put on trial on the night of 2 July and sentenced to death for the murder of Ahlam Duqmaq the next day. The proceedings, before the State Security Court, did not meet even minimum standards for fair trial. President Yasser Arafat has the power to commute the death sentence, which has been passed to him for ratification, or order a retrial.
