Supreme Court stays execution of four convicts in gang-rape case

ISLAMABAD, September 02 2005: A two-member bench of the Supreme Court on Thursday September 1 stayed execution of four people sentenced to death in a gang rape case. The bench Comprising Justice Hamid Ali Mirza and Justice Nasirul Mulk stayed the execution till the next hearing for which a date will be fixed in the last week of the current month.

The four – Shehzad alias Shadda, Umar Hayat, Muhammad Ashraf and Mubarik Ali – were awarded death sentence by an anti-terrorism court for raping a Faisalabad Christian woman named Saima in November 1999. The Lahore High Court upheld the sentence, which was also confirmed by the Supreme Court on May 30 this year.

The convicts filed a review petition in the Supreme Court, which is to be heard by the same bench that stayed the execution.

The convicts have submitted to the court a compromise settlement, by which Saima, her father and Bishop of Faisalabad have forgiven the sentenced men.
