Is the attitude towards Death Penalty changing in Indonesia?
In 2011, Ruyati binti Sapubi, a 54-year-old Indonesian maid working in Saudi Arabia, was sentenced to death after she confessed of murdering her employer after suffering abuse. The ruling caused an outcry in Indonesia. Indonesia reacted by reaching out to its citizens on death row around the world establishing a taskforce to protect the approximately 200 Indonesians facing the death penalty overseas.
Presently 20 year old Indonesian citizen Wilfrida Soik is facing the death sentence if found guilty of killing her Malaysian employer. Her trial will commence 17 November.
