“Saudi Arabia soon executes 14 individuals”
PressTV News Videos on Jul 25, 2017
A prominent rights organization has urged Saudi Arabia to halt the executions of 14 individuals who were sentenced to death on charges of taking part in anti-government protests.
Amnesty International says the men were convicted following unfair trials based on confessions obtained under torture. The rights group said it is gravely concerned if justice has been served warning that the men could be executed as soon as the King ratifies their sentences. Saudi Arabia claims the defendants committed violent crimes as they joined anti-government protests in the country’s Eastern province back in 20-11 and 20-12. Some 15 others were also given death sentences on charges of spying for Iran. Prominent human rights organizations accuse the Kingdom of issuing death penalties to suppress dissidents and the opposition.
