PM urged to call for release of men facing death for ‘protesting’
THERESA MAY kow-towed to Saudi Arabian leaders yesterday on an official visit to the brutal Gulf state — despite its plans to behead three youths for the crime of “protesting”.
All three were tortured into forced “confessions” relating to protests and convicted in secret trials. They remain imprisoned, and could be executed at any time without notice being given to their families.
A prominent group of UN experts has called on the Saudi authorities to “release all three minors immediately.”
But the only response so far has been an expression of “concern” from the Foreign Office which appears not to have sent a request for the release of the three young men, Reprieve said.
Reprieve deputy director Harriet McCulloch said: “The Prime Minister is seeking closer ties with the Saudi authorities, including on security co-operation, even while the kingdom’s security sector carries out appalling abuses — from torture and forced ‘confessions’ to the death penalty for juveniles.
“The Prime Minister’s desire to promote Gulf relations must not see Britain compromise our commitment to human rights.
“Theresa May must make clear on this trip that the UK condemns the kingdom’s use of torture and executions — and she must call for the immediate release of Ali, Dawood and Abdullah.”
At the weekend Scotland Yard confirmed that it is investigating allegations of war crimes against the kingdom over its indiscriminate air raids which are believed to have killed thousands of Yemeni civilians.
British military advisers are stationed in the command centres that direct these strikes.
He said: “The Prime Minister should put human rights and international law at the centre of her talks with Saudi Arabia’s government this week.
“British-made weapons are being used in a war which has caused a humanitarian catastrophe.”
