I have just received the following in an email from Amnesty International...
'Amnesty International would like to clarify some confusion that has arisen around the case of Amina Lawal.
A number of emails are circulating with inaccurate information about the date that her death sentence is due to be carried out. The Spanish website of Amnesty International is often wrongly cited as the source of this information.
3rd June is the date set for a hearing of Amina Lawal's case before the Sharia Court of Appeal of Katsina State, Nigeria and not a date of execution.'
