When a person commits an act of terrorism in a foreign country, he should not be prosecuted in the same country because he might not get a full safety of his rights (Your Human Rights in a Foreign Country). The jury may be biased against the person because of his nationality and this may overwhelm the evidences present in the case. Hence, even if the accused is not guilty of the crime and there may be slight evidences of his innocence the biasness of the jury might cause them to sentence the person.
Secondly, the accused is the national of another country and therefore is subject to prosecution by his native country. Countries have rights over their citizens and when they violate those rights they should be punished accordingly (Rhodes). Another reason to prosecute in the homeland is the difference in terms of the penalty and the actual sentence. For instance, in the European countries people who commit an act of terrorism or plan others are sent to detention facilities, those who murder others, are offered the capital punishment in some countries while in others they are sent to prisons (Death Penalty). On the other hand in the Arab world or in Muslim countries the sentences and the modes of punishment are different. People who kill others are beheaded and the ones who plan for acts of terrorism are also handed in strict punishments (Nasir). There is no doubt that such people should be prosecuted and handed with the worst punishments possible but they should also be given a justified chance to prove them innocent in front of an unbiased court of law. It is essential because people who get arrested are not always the ones’ who are the culprits, sometimes even innocent people are picked up.
