The Saudi Arabian regime has ruled to execute 25 Indonesian maids working in the kingdom over alleged “crimes”, a report says.
According to a report published by Lebanese Ad-Diyar Arabic daily on Sunday, 22 other Indonesian maids have been acquitted and deported from the kingdom.
Meanwhile, the Indonesian government plans to send a delegation to Riyadh for negotiations over the death sentences.
Indonesian Embassy officials in Riyadh say six of the maids sentenced to death worked in the capital.
About 1,700 Indonesian nationals are in prison in Saudi Arabia, the Indonesian Embassy says.
The embassy has also called on Saudi officials to allow the visiting delegation from Jakarta to meet the Indonesian convicts.
