Country; Saudi Arabia
ICHR strongly calls on Saudi Arabia for the immediate and unconditional release of all imprisoned human rights defenders whom have committed no crime but to fought tirelessly for women’s rights.
The imprisonments of prominent women’s rights activists and leading campaigners for the lifting of the driving ban is an strategic act of Saudi Arabia government to suppress women and minorities. Loujain al-Hathloul, Iman al-Nafjan, Aziza al-Yousef, and Samar Badawi all are defenders of woman’s rights that got arrested in May 2018.
They all have been Subjected to torture, sexual_abuse, and other forms of ill_treatment as well as being incommunicado with no access to their lawyer or family.
Loujain al-Hathloul, Iman al-Nafjan, Aziza al-Yousef, and Samar Badawi are all imprisoned on false charges and in imminent danger of facing long term prison term up to 20 years, after confessing under torture, and that completed the investigation into their case that has left them under at most horrific condition in prison.
“Now is the time to take action and defend these brave activists, whom are some of the most prominent of the human rights movement in Saudi Arabia.” Said; Ardeshire Zarezadeh, Executive Director for ICHR Canada.
ICHR strongly calls on Saudi Arabia to stop violating the rights of the women in the country, and to start abiding by the UN laws and laws of human rights. The government must be held accountable for all their crimes and oppression against women and human_rights.
ICHR also strongly condemn the government of Saudi Arabia for impersonating human rights defenders who have fought tirelessly for women’s rights.
