Washington, DC ( STL.News) Press Declaration by Ned Rate, Division Representative:
We are worried by records that a Saudi counterterrorism court punished Saudi aid worker Abdulrahman al-Sadhan to two decades behind bars adhered to by a 20-year traveling restriction. We will certainly remain to check this situation very closely throughout any kind of allures procedure. As we have actually stated to Saudi authorities in all degrees, flexibility of expression need to never ever be a culpable infraction. We will certainly remain to boost the function of civils rights in our partnership with Saudi Arabia as well as motivate lawful reforms that appreciate the civils rights of all people.
