Speaking with the press, the father of the victim, Yahya Al-Matari, expressed satisfaction over justice metted out on the suspect, sayingt he felt reborn after the execution.

Al-Matari said gladly, “I felt like a reborn, this is the first day in my life. I am relieved now.”

Rape cases are increasingly being reported almost on a daily basis.

The death sentence, would likely serve as a deterrent to rape perpetrators.
