Urgent Action: Saudi Arabian At Risk Of Imminent Execution (Saudi Arabia: UA 144.17)


Saudi Arabian Said Mabkhout al-Sai’ari is at risk of imminent execution. He was sentenced to death after an unfair trial, he exhausted all his appeals and is likely to be executed anytime after 2 July.

Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Urging the King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud to halt the execution of Said Mabkhout al-Sai’ari and commute his and all other existing death sentences with a view to abolishing the death penalty;
  • Reminding the authorities that international human rights law requires trials for crimes carrying the death penalty must comply with the most rigorous internationally recognized standards for fair trial;
  • Quash Said Mabkhout al-Sai’ari’s conviction and order a re-trial in proceedings which comply with international fair trial standards, and without recourse to the death penalty.
