The Saudi authorities will enforce the ruling on the media by three Saudi scholars who are arrested on various charges including "terrorism" after the end of the month of Ramadan, according to sources confirmed by the government and a relative of the advocates of the site.The most prominent of those to be executed, according to the website, is Sheikh Salman al-Awda, known for his relatively progressive views in the Muslim world. He was arrested in September 2017 after publishing a tweet calling for reconciliation between Saudi Arabia and Qatar, The start of the Gulf nation and the imposition of the blockade on Qatar. The other two worlds to be executed are Awad al-Qarni and the famous announcer Ali al-Amri, who were also arrested in September 2017.According to the website, two Saudi government sources confirmed the execution plan for the three men, who are currently awaiting trial at the Special Criminal Court in Riyadh. A session was scheduled for the first of this month, but it was postponed without another date. "These men will be executed once a death sentence is issued," one source told the website.The execution of 37 Saudis, mostly Shiites, in April was a test of how strong the international condemnation was, a Saudi government source said on condition of anonymity. "When they found that there was a very weak international reaction, especially at the level of governments and heads of state, they decided to move ahead with their plan to execute prominent figures," the source said, adding that the timing of the executions would be commensurate with growing tensions between the United States and Iran.

Saudi Arabia torturing 3 Saudi scholars for opposition to Israel

http://en.abna24.com/news//Saudi-arabia-torturing-3-Saudi-scholars-for-opposition-to-israel_944924.html

Saudi Arabia torturing 3 Saudi scholars for opposition to Israel

 

Three imprisoned Saudi scholars who have been sentenced to death and are reportedly due to be executed shortly after the holy month of Ramadan are being tortured for their opposition to normalization of ties with Israel. 

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): 

"We have been told that Dr.. Ali al-Omari has been transferred to a prison that is notorious for torturing and is run under the supervision of the Royal Court. Before this, Saud al-Qahtani, the special advisor to Mohammed bin Salman, supervised Omari's interrogation and torturing, but a new team is in charge now which is not less brutal than him," wrote Mo'taqeli al-Rai twitter account, which pursues the situation of Saudi inmates imprisoned against human rights, on Tuesday. 

It added that Sheikh Salman al-Ouda, Sheikh Awad al-Qarni and Ali al-Omari are in solitary confinement and being tortured. 

Also, Saudi researcher and university professor Saeed bin Nassar al-Qamedi said in an interview that the three scholars have been imprisoned for their opposition to the Saudi government's policy of normalization of relations with Israel. 

"All groups of people in Saudi Arabia except those called 'the cyber militia' oppose normalization of ties with Israel," he added. 

Saudi officials are reportedly set to execute the three scholars after the holy month of Ramadan as a brutal crackdown led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) against Muslim preachers and intellectuals widens in the kingdom. 

The news outlet Middle East Eye, citing two unnamed Saudi government sources, reported last Tuesday that Ouda is the assistant secretary-general of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, which the Riyadh regime has listed as a terrorist organization. 

Saudi authorities detained the prominent cleric in September 2017 and have held him in solitary confinement without charge or trial ever since. The officials have imposed travel bans on members of his family as well. 

A family member has told Human Rights Watch that the distinguished cleric was being held over his refusal to comply with an order by Saudi authorities to tweet a specific text to support the Saudi-led blockade of Qatar. 

Ouda, instead, posted a tweet, saying, “May God harmonize between their hearts for the good of their people” - an apparent call for reconciliation between the Persian Gulf littoral states. 

Ouda has been prevented from communicating with the outside world since October last year. 

The trio is currently awaiting trial at the Special Criminal Court in the capital Riyadh. A hearing was set for early May, but was postponed without setting a further date. 

“They will not wait to execute these men once the death sentence has been passed,” a source stated on condition of anonymity. 

A second source, requesting not to be named, noted that the beheading of 37 Saudi nationals in a single day in April was used as a trial balloon to see how strong the international condemnation was. 

“When they found out there was very little international reaction, particularly at the level of governments and heads of state, they decided to proceed with their plan to execute figures who were prominent,” the source added. 

The mass execution was the largest in Saudi Arabia since January 2016, when 47 men were executed on a single day, including Shiite cleric Sheikh Mohammed Baqer Nimr al-Nimr. 

It brings the number of such punishments this year to 106, according to a count by Human Rights Watch. Last year, the oil-rich Persian Gulf state carried out the death sentences of 149 people, according to Amnesty International. 

Amnesty International has put Saudi Arabia on the list of top world executioners. According to data from the group, Riyadh executed at least 146 people in 2017, which represents 17 percent of all confirmed executions in the Middle East and North Africa. 

MbS was appointed the first in line to the Saudi throne by his father, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, in June 2017. Since then, MbS has been involved in an aggressive push to purge royals and businessmen critical of his policies under the banner of an “anti-corruption campaign”. He has also ordered the rounding up of scores of activists, high-profile clerics and women's rights defenders. His international reputation has been badly tarnished by his role in Journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in Turkey last year.

Saudi Arabia seeking to execute teenager who was detained aged 13

 

Saudi Arabia is seeking to execute a teenager who has been imprisoned ever since his arrest as a 13-year-old, human rights experts have said.

Murtaja Qureiris, 18, is facing the death penalty – possibly by crucifixion – over charges including anti-government protests, joining a “terrorist organisation”, firing at security forces and making Molotov cocktails which were later thrown at a police station. 

 

Mr. Qureiris, a member of Saudi Arabia’s minority Shia community, was arrested in 2014 by border authorities while travelling with his family to Bahrain, according to CNN.

 

He was considered at the time by experts to be Saudi Arabia’s youngest known political prisoner.

Anti-Wahhabi Saudi thinker faces execution: HRW

Hassan Farhan al-Maliki was arrested in September 2017 and has been held in detention since then. The Saudi authorities finally brought charges against him in October 2018.

Anti-Wahhabi Saudi thinker faces execution: HRW

According to the US-based rights group, al-Maliki is currently on trial over 14 charges, nearly all of them having "no resemblance" to crimes recognized by law. 

HRW, which reviewed al-Maliki’s charge sheet, said the first two charges relate to his peaceful expression of his religious opinions about the veracity of certain sayings of the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) and his criticism of several seventh century Islamic figures. 

Maliki was also charged with “insulting the country’s rulers and the Supreme Council of Religious Scholars, and describing them as extremist”, and accusing Arab countries of the Persian Gulf of supporting the Daesh terrorist group. 

The Other charges included praising Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary General of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement, and “having sympathy” for the Yemen's Houthi Ansarullah movement. 

He is also facing charges for voicing his religious views in television interviews, attending discussion groups in the kingdom, writing books and studies and publishing them abroad. 

The rights group cited a Saudi activist as saying that the Specialized Criminal Court in Riyadh, which specializes in terrorism trials, has held at least three trial sessions on the cleric’s case. The next hearing has not yet been scheduled. 

 

Human Rights Watch has condemned the Saudi authorities for seeking the death penalty against a reformist religious thinker and critic on charges that bear “no resemblance to recognized crimes.”

Saudi Arabia arrest hate preacher.

Saudi Arabia's crime? Hypocrisy. How can they put scholars on death row who want reform and then arrest scholars who believe reform is some Western evil? They're just hypocrites who just arrest anyone who imbalances their egomaniac vision. Heard about the robot cage fighting, dinosaurs, moon and flying taxis they want to build in their new $500bn city? That's 1,875,350,000,000 Riyals!!!

What would the Prophet or his family have done with that much in gold or silver, not make a playground for the rich and privileged that's for certain.

Top Saudi court hands down death sentence to Shia activist from Qatif

 

Saudi Arabia's Specialized Criminal Court has sentenced an anti-regime activist from the kingdom’s oil-rich and Shia-populated Eastern Province to death, as a crackdown led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman against pro-democracy campaigners, Muslim preachers and intellectuals continues in the country.

(ABNA24.com) 
On Monday, the Riyadh-based tribunal found Ali Al Rabie guilty in a “sham hearing” that fell short of international fair trial standards, London-based and Arabic-language Nabaa television news network reported.

The report came as Saudi authorities executed two of Ali’s brothers, Ahmad and Hossein, on April 23 over their political activism.

Saudi king's brother Prince Bandar dead: Report

 

Saudi King Salman's elder half-brother, Prince Bandar bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, has died at the age of 96.

(ABNA24.com) Prince Faisal bin Turki bin Faisal posted a tweet on Sunday confirming the death of Prince Bandar, the 10th son of Saudi Arabia’s late founder King Abdulaziz Al Saud and his eldest living son.

He did not hold any political post and had been passed over in the line of succession to the throne.

However, his sons hold prominent posts, with Prince Faisal bin Bandar serving as the governor of Riyadh; Prince Abdullah bin Bandar presiding over the National Guard; Prince Abdullah bin Bandar being deputy governor of Mecca; and Prince Khalid bin Bandar serving as an adviser to King Salman.

Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler is Mohammed bin Salman, who was appointed by the Saudi Allegiance Council as the new crown prince in 2017 by breaking the customary rules of succession.

Ws. This part we all know and see. And Iran is constantly berated for human rights abuses anyway. So why do the unnecessary favour of helping them escape the country secretly? Sounds like a very very sinister agenda to me and would make any reasonable mind question who are in power in Iran.

Dissident cleric dies because of ‘medical negligence’ in Saudi prison

https://en.abna24.com/news//dissident-cleric-dies-because-of-‘medical-negligence’-in-Saudi-prison_966625.html

Dissident cleric dies because of ‘medical negligence’ in Saudi prison

 

A dissident Saudi cleric has reportedly died of health complications he developed in the kingdom’s jails due to “medical negligence,” as a crackdown led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman against pro-democracy campaigners, Muslim preachers and intellectuals continues in the country. 

The development came only a day after Amnesty International called for the immediate and unconditional release of prominent Saudi dissident Muslim cleric Sheikh Salman al-Awdah. 

“The hearing of Sheikh Salman al-Awdah has been adjourned again after a year of several postponements. We continue to demand Saudi authorities to release the Sheikh immediately and unconditionally, drop all charges against him, and respect international human rights standards in his trial,” the London-based organization said in a post published on its Twitter page. 

The Arabic-language Saudi newspaper Okaz reported on September 4, 2018 that Saudi public prosecutors had leveled 37 counts against Awdah, and even demanded his execution.

Saudi Arabia extends top dissident cleric’s prison sentence for 4 more years

https://en.abna24.com/news//Saudi-arabia-extends-top-dissident-cleric’s-prison-sentence-for-4-more-years_967588.html

Saudi Arabia extends top dissident cleric’s prison sentence for 4 more years

 

Saudi authorities have extended the prison sentence of a renowned dissident cleric by four more years, as a crackdown led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman against pro-democracy campaigners, Muslim preachers and intellectuals continues in the country. 

The rights group Prisoners of Conscience, which is an independent non-governmental organization seeking to promote human rights in Saudi Arabia, announced in a post on its official Twitter page that the officials had ordered Sheikh Suleiman al-Alwan to serve four more years in jail, just after he completed his 15-year prison sentence.

Sheikh al-Alwan, a specialist in modern science and jurisprudence, is known for his lessons and books, which received praise from leading Saudi scholars, including the kingdom’s late Grand Mufti Abdul Aziz ibn Abdullah ibn Baz. 

He has long been involved in jurisprudential disputes with members of Saudi Arabia’s highest religious authority, known as the Council of Senior Scholars, on several issues. 

Back in 2004, Sheikh al-Alwan was arrested for refusing to issue a fatwa (religious decree) in favor of the ruling House of Saud. He was held in prison incommunicado up until December 2012. 

Saudi authorities released the clergyman in 2013, but the Specialized Criminal Court upheld a 15-year prison sentence against him from the date of his arrest in 2004. 


The court charged Sheikh Alwan with money laundering, meeting with dissidents and opposition figures, financing terrorism and bomb attacks, and issuing fatwas in rejection of those released by the Council of Senior Scholars.
