Saudi Arabia: NGOs Call for Access to Saudi Detainees, as Manahel al-Otaibi Faces Further Abuse

The undersigned civil society organizations, are extremely concerned by developments threatening the safety and well-being of detained feminist and fitness instructor Manahel al-Otaibi. On 14 April 2024, when al-Otaibi was finally able to contact her family after having been forcibly disappeared since November 2023, she told them that she is being held in solitary confinement in Malaz Prison in Riyadh and has a broken leg as a result of physical abuse. She said she is also being denied medical visits. Amnesty International calls on the authorities to immediately and unconditionally release Manahel al-Otaibi and all others detained for expressing their opinions. Pending al-Otaibi’s release, the authorities must ensure her safety and access to adequate medical care.
