Mohamed and Sultan Kohail Born Mohamamed Kohail - 1985 (age 24–25)[1] Sultan Kohail 1991 (age 18–19)[1] Saudi Arabia Charge(s) Mohamamed Kohail - Murder [1] Sultan Kohail Accersory to Murder Conviction(s) Found guilty by Saudi low level general court Penalty Mohamamed Kohail - Death by Beheading [1] Sultan Kohail - originally sentenced to one year in prison and will receive 200 lashes[1] later overturned on appeal that Court was unable to issue death sentence and re-tried. Decision of General Court still pending.[2] Status Appeal Occupation Students Mohamed Kohail born 1985 (age 24–25) and Sultan Kohail born 1991 (age 18–19) were born in Saudi Arabia and lived there 16 years before moving to Montreal, Canada where they got citizenship and the family spent 6 years (2000-2006). Mohamed has been found guilty in a Saudi court for the murder of a 19 year old Syrian boy, Munzer Hiraki, who died in a schoolyard brawl in January 2007.[3] If the death penalty is granted, then, in accordance with Saudi law, Mohamed Kohail could be beheaded in public. Sultan Kohail was sentenced to one year in prison and 200 lashes. This was later appealed by the prosecution on the grounds that the Juvenile Court was unable to issue a death sentence and the case was overturned to be retried before the General Court. Sultan still awaits the verdict of the trial of the General Court.[2] If sentenced to death, Saudi Arabia would be violating the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.[4] Contents 1 The incident 2 Trial 3 Sentence 4 See also 5 References // The incident In January 2007, Mohamed and his brother Sultan were involved in a fight that broke out after a girl’s male cousin accused Sultan of insulting her.[5] The girl's cousin demanded an apology, but Sultan refused. Sultan, then 16, said he called for help from Mohamed when he was confronted by several boys over the insult.[5] According to the account of the Kohail brothers, Mohamed Kohail arrived at the school with a male friend to face about a dozen of the girl’s male relatives and friends, some were armed with clubs and knives.[5] But the girl's relatives claim that they were more than 14. The Kohail brothers were attacked by a large group of young men carrying electrified rods and chains. A brutal brawl started and according to the victim's cousins, Sultan, Mohamed and another boy grouped on Munzer and beat him to death. There is no footage on this event. However there is a clear film that shows the victim, Munzer, kicking Mohamed in the head.[6] The Kohail defense team deny that Munzer died because of the fight but they say that he had heart problems. The autopsy shows that Munzer had an underlying heart disease.[6] Munzer's mother showed a health certificate of the victim made 6 months before the fight happened and it showed that he was in perfect condition. When asked why she had obtained a health certificate, Munzer's mother replied that her son needed a health certificate so that he could run in a marathon.[citation needed] Trial Their original trial before the General Court took place over nine sessions, lasting approximately 10 minutes per session.[3] Their lawyer was allowed to attend only the last one or two, and was not allowed to challenge the evidence brought against his clients.[3] During the hearing on March 3, the Kohail defense brought two witnesses but the court did not take them into consideration.[citation needed] Sentence On March 3, 2008 the court sentenced Mohamed Kohail to be executed by public beheading.[7] The death penalty by beheading in Saudi Arabia is executed in public after Friday noon prayer by chopping off his head using a sword. Sultan and Mohammed Kohail, as well as Mehanna Sa'ad are subjects of an Amnesty International Urgent Action appeal.[8] In February 2009, the Saudi supreme court rejected his death sentence and asked the lower court to revise its ruling. The Supreme Court Council must approve all capital punishment sentence before it is referred to the king, who is considered the ultimate authority.[5] However, on April 2, 2009, the lower court rejected the recommendation of the higher court and reconfirmed the death penalty. However, this does hold open the option of a retrial.
