The families of 12 Saudi Arabian men sentenced to death after a grossly unfair mass trial fear that their relatives could be executed imminently, as their cases were transferred from the Specialized Criminal Court (SCC) to the Presidency of State Security.

1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Urging the Saudi Arabian authorities not to execute the 12 men and quash their convictions, given the grave concerns about the fairness of the trial, and to retry them in line with international fair trial standards, without recourse to the death penalty;
  • Calling on them to order a prompt, impartial, independent and effective investigation into the allegations of ill-treatment;
  • Urging them to immediately establish an official moratorium on executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty in Saudi Arabia.
