Saudi Arabia: Further information: Detainee with cancer must get medical care: Dr. Mohammed al-Khudari and Dr. Hani al-Khudari

The health of Dr. Mohammed al-Khudari (84) continues to deteriorate while in detention. He is being deprived of adequate medical treatment for his advanced prostate cancer. His and his son, Dr. Hani al-Khudari’s prison sentences ended on 28 February, but they remain detained until the Supreme Court reviews the appealed sentences of all the defendants in the mass trial which both men are part of. Meanwhile, Dr. Mohammed al-Khudari’s life is at serious risk in prison. Amnesty International urges the Saudi Arabian authorities to release both men immediately. Pending their release, they must be granted immediate access to adequate medical care.
