Saudi Arabia: Capital Punishment
To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of Saudi Arabia concerning the proposed execution of five human rights activists.
Answered on: 24 September 2018

​We are monitoring closely the cases of all detained activists, in particular those cases in which the public prosecutor has recommended the death penalty. We will attend all trials of international concern that we are able to. Ministers frequently discuss human rights with the Saudi Arabian Government and have raised specific concerns about the prosecution of human rights activists on four occasions between May and September 2018.
