Anti-Stoning Campaign Update: After months of campaigning the sentence has been overturned, but there is still more work to do

On the 24th of November, the Court of Appeal overturned the verdict of the Court of First Instance which had convicted Amal* to death by stoning for adultery. The case has been sent back to the primary court under the Court of Appeal’s ruling that, given the flawed proceedings and distorted implementation of the law, the whole trial will be repeated.
