Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
Prominent Saudi women’s rights activists arrested
In Saudi Arabia, seven people have been arrested who, according to the Saudi government, have “suspicious ties with foreign powers”. Among them are said to be five prominent women’s rights activists, who also have been active for the possibility for women to get a driving license in Saudi Arabia. They will be able to do that from next month on.
According to the Saudi government, the seven suspects supposedly have provided financial support to foreign enemies of the kingdom. In addition, they supposedly tried to have a conspiracy against Saudi Arabia with people working on important positions within the government.
An activist says to the Reuters news agency that nothing is correct in that official pretext. Saudi Arabia, would like to prevent the activists from publicly claiming the responsibility for allowing women to obtain a driving license from 24 June on.
Also activist Loujain al-Hathloul and her lawyer are said to have been arrested. Hathloul was detained for 73 days in 2014 after attempting to drive to Saudi Arabia from the Emirates. Last year she told Dutch Nieuwsuur TV show about her activism and her hope for reform in Saudi Arabia.
From the Reuters article:
“They detained them because they do not want them to publicly claim success.”
