Non-profit organization Reprieve said Saudi Arabia killed 12 people in 10 days in a new wave of violence. All these men were caught in drug crimes. Recently, the Crown Prince had promised reduction in such punishment, but in spite of that the accused were mercilessly murdered. Reprieve noted that the accused were sentenced to death for drug crimes. The NGO collected a data this week which clearly shows that most of the accused were beheaded with swords.
Instead of being hanged, the punishment was given by slitting the throat.

In 2018, Crown Prince bin Salman said that his administration wanted to reduce the death penalty. This would be applicable only for those who commit murder. After the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, there was talk of a change in the law. The journalist was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Saudi Arabia has proposed to change the law and eliminate the death penalty for drug and other non-violent crimes. Human rights groups fear that the rapid increase in the death penalty could lead to the country breaking its grim record of 186 executions in 2019.
