In a press statement, the organization expressed its grave concern for the detainees’ lives. It held the Al Saud authorities responsible for the severe health complications that he suffers from due to medical negligence.
The organization confirmed that systematic medical negligence in the Al Saud regime prisons led to many detainees’ death.
According to the organization, the Al Saud authorities ignored this and referred them to meagre trials, in which the prosecution demanded the death penalty against them.
The organization demanded that detainees in the prisons of the Al Saud regime be given utmost importance.
And pressure on the authorities for the immediate release of all prisoners of conscience, especially those who suffer from serious health conditions.
Saudi prisons were not open to journalists and human rights observers for a long time, and human rights organizations accused Saudi Arabia of torturing prisoners.
In its annual report 2016-2017, Amnesty International confirmed that the Saudi authorities are using brutal torture methods and other forms of ill-treatment to extract confessions from detainees to be used as evidence against them at trial.
Human Rights Watch said that the Saudi regime had used its strict counterterrorism laws to stop hundreds of people indefinitely, often merely criticizing the government; others were convicted in secret and unfair trials.
