Foreign Nationals

In certain countries with large numbers of foreign guest workers, foreign nationals make up a sizeable percentage of those on death row. Foreign nationals are vulnerable to discriminatory treatment and deprivations of due process as a result of cultural and linguistic barriers. In countries in which Islamic law is applied, foreign guest workers often lack the financial resources to pay diyat, or blood money, to the victim’s family, which could result in commutation of their death sentence.
