Saudi Arabia: Juvenile offender’s death sentence must shame the authorities into meaningful action
The King of Saudi Arabia must refuse to ratify the outrageous death sentence against juvenile offender, Ali Mohammed Baqir al-Nimr, Amnesty International said today. The organization called on the authorities to quash Ali al-Nimr’s death sentence, which followed a grossly unfair trial and was based on confessions” Ali al-Nimr says were extracted under torture. It also urged the authorities to immediately impose an official moratorium on all executions and implement significant reforms in the country’s criminal justice system.
