Saudi rulers ‘ratchet up’ repressive crackdowns

Monday 21st October 2013

Amnesty International have warned that Saudi Arabia has ignored UN recommendations and “ratcheted up the repression” since 2009.

It said the country had continued with the arbitrary detention and torture of activists.

The London-based watchdog released its statement ahead of a UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva to discuss the kingdom’s record.

Saudi Arabia‘s previous promises to the UN have been proven to be nothing but hot air,” said Amnesty spokesman Philip Luther.

He accused the kingdom of relying on “political and economic clout to deter the international community from criticising its dire human rights record.”

Amnesty also criticised a “crackdown including arbitrary arrests and detention, unfair trials, torture and other ill-treatment over the past four years.”
