Saudi Leaks reveals: Palestinians and Jordian prisoners of conscience might be released soon

A civil committee expected a breakthrough in the file of Palestinian and Jordanian detainees in Al Saud prisons.

The spokesman for the Committee for Prisoners of Conscience, Alaa Khreisat, suggested that the Al Saud authorities release the Palestinian and Jordanian detainees in their prisons.

Khreisat linked this breakthrough with the new moves of US President Joe Biden towards the Kingdom.

Khreisat said to Saudi Leaks that the Saudi authorities recently released a Jordanian citizen of Palestinian origin.

The reasons why it took this step are not known, but it does indicate an imminent breakthrough in the issue of Palestinian and Jordanian detainees in Al Saud prisons.

Khreesat added: Some data show the possibility of resolving detainees’ issue in Saudi prisons, especially that their case is political.

He emphasized that there are no court rulings against them, or any evidence of incrimination as well.

Since President Joe Biden came to power, Saudi Arabia has changed some of its policies and has released detained US citizens.

Finally, the Saudi authorities released Ibrahim Bajis, a Jordanian citizen of Palestinian origin, after being detained for a year and seven months in their prisons.

Baggs has not been prosecuted or charged with any charges.

On September 9, 2019, Hamas announced the Saudi regime’s arrest, the former Hamas representative in the Kingdom, Muhammad al-Khudari and his son.

It said that he was responsible for managing “the relationship with the Kingdom for two decades, and he also held senior leadership positions in the movement.”

Hamas indicated that arrest came “as part of a campaign that affected many of the Palestinian people residing in Saudi Arabia.”

A family appeal

In the context, the Al-Khodari family appealed to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and his Crown Prince to release two of their detained sons.

The family said in a message addressed to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and his Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

“We in the Al-Khudary family appeal to you to release our sons so that the family may be reunited. We are waiting for your Majesty to take your wise, appreciated and generous decision.”

The family reported that their detained son, Dr Muhammad Salih al-Khudri, 83 years old, suffers from a terminal illness (prostate cancer), which causes him to be unable to fulfil his needs except with others’ help.

His son, Dr Hani Muhammad Al-Khudary, suffers from many diseases as well. The family said that they fear the Corona pandemic’s impact, which is killing all humanity, on their health.

The family warned that Dr Muhammad al-Khudari, who is residing in the Kingdom, is “known for his stances in support of the Kingdom and its leadership, love and great appreciation for the Kingdom and its leadership.”

Saudi Arabia continues to detain dozens of Palestinians and Jordanians in its prisons.

It offered them unfair trials on fabricated charges and motives, amid Palestinian anger and popular and human rights calls for their immediate release.
