Death + Five? Only in Islam...

RIYADH (Reuters) – A Shi'ite who has been on death row in Saudi Arabia for 16 years for insulting the Prophet Mohammed was sentenced this week to another five years in jail for criticizing the Saudi justice system, an activist said.

The verdict issued on Monday punished Hadi al-Mutif for criticizing the justice system and the U.S.-alliedabsolute monarchy's human rights record in comments he made from prison to U.S.-funded Alhurra television in 2007. Prisoners are often able to access mobile phones from visitors to Saudi jails.

Sooo... Seeing that the Sharia Justice system is an bastion of logic and fairness, I wonder if the man will have to wait another five years to be executed, or if they will simply leave his body in jail for the extra five years?
