Saudi Arabia: Further information: Palestinian detained past sentence expiry: Dr. Hani al-Khudari and Dr. Mohammed al-Khudari

Palestinian national Dr. Hani al-Khudari continues to be detained in Saudi Arabia despite the expiry of his sentence on 28 February 2022. During his arrest and detention, Dr. Hani al-Khudari was subjected to a series of gross human rights violations, including enforced disappearance, arbitrary detention incommunicado and in solitary confinement, and denied access to adequate medical care. His father, Dr. Mohammed al-Khudari was released in October 2022, seven months after the expiry of his sentence and following three years of arbitrary detention. Amnesty International urges the Saudi Arabian authorities to release Dr. Hani al-Khudari immediately. Pending his release, he must be granted immediate access to adequate medical care.
