Saudi Authorities Deny Medical Help for Protester Sentenced to Death as a Child

LONDON - The Saudi authorities are refusing to allow Ali al-Nimr, who was sentenced to death aged 17, access to a doctor, according to his family.

Ali was arrested following anti-government protests in 2012, and sentenced to death in a secretive trial on the basis of a “confession” extracted through torture, even though he was a child at the time.

However, despite international criticism over the case, the Kingdom’s authorities are refusing to allow Ali access to a doctor, and today defended their plans to behead him in the UK’s Daily Telegraph.

We have all known for very long time that Saudi Arabia and its majority extremist Islamic sect is vile. We have also known that it was involved in supporting the 9/11 tragedy. However treacherous American leaders will not strive for justice or human rights with respect to this pariah state.
