Saudi prisons are filled with hundreds or even thousands of Egyptians, so there are no more Saudis in prison than there are Egyptians inside.
We succeeded earlier, and we published a statement containing dozens of Egyptians inside a single section, missing from the Saudi Tabuk prison.
Today, we publish to you the Amnesty International report, which calls on Saudi Arabia to immediately release 10 Egyptian prisoners who did nothing bad except that they were the October victory celebrations Today we are releasing an Amnesty International report calling on Saudi Arabia to immediately release 10 Egyptian prisoners who did nothing bad except the October victory celebrations Amnesty International called on Saudi authorities to immediately release 10 Egyptian Nubian men who have been detained for 16 months, and to drop all charges against them.
The organization said they were arrested for organizing a rally to commemorate the Sixth of October War The Deputy Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International said: “These Egyptian Nubian men have been held captive by Saudi authorities for almost 16 months, and are now on trial for peacefully exercising their right to freedom of expression, and for trying to organize a community event.
“These men are longtime residents of Saudi Arabia, and they hold commemorative events every year without consequences they should never have been arrested in the first place, and they should be released immediately,” Maalouf added.
The Gulf Center for Human Rights said in an earlier statement, “The issue goes back to October 2019, when the Nubian Assembly in Riyadh decided to hold a seminar on the occasion of the Sixth of October War.”
