Saudi Arabia’s ACPRA: How the kingdom silences its human rights activists
This briefing focuses on the cases of 11 human rights activists in Saudi Arabia who are either imprisoned or on trial and facing imprisonment. All 11 are founders or members of the Saudi Civil and Political Rights Association (ACPRA), an officially unlicensed independent human rights organization. Amnesty International considers the eight detained members to be prisoners of conscience and is calling on the authorities to drop the charges against those facing trial and to ensure that the sentences and convictions of all ACPRA members are quashed.
