EMIRATI SAVES TWO PRISONERS FROM CAPITAL PUNISHMENT
March 31, 2008: an Emirati man's charity gave a new lease on life to two prisoners sentenced to death for a murder they committed ten years ago.
Abdul Rahman Farooq, a 42 year old Pakistani and Radwad Naeem Al Deen, a 37 year old Indian were awaiting execution. Saeed Mohammad Al Amiri, a good Samaritan, paid the blood money to the parents of the victim and rescued the prisoners from capital punishment.
"I'm not a rich man. I live a normal life just like my fellow compatriots in the country, but I have the intent to do good things and help people who are suffering from financial problems or those living under poor conditions," said Al Amiri. (Sources: Gulf News, 31/03/2008)
