Urgent Action

14 SAUDI ARABIAN MEN AT IMMINENT RISK OF EXECUTION

Fourteen Saudi Arabian men are at imminent risk of execution after their
families learned on 23 July
that the Supreme Court has ratified their death sentences. On 1 June 2016, the
men were sentenced to
death penalty after a grossly unfair trial based on “confessions” they said
were obtained under
torture

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

* Urging the Saudi Arabian authorities to halt the execution of the 14 men
and quash their
conviction, given grave concerns about the fairness of the trial, 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 torture and other ill-treatment;
* Urging them to immediately establish an official moratorium on executions
with a view to
abolishing the death penalty in Saudi Arabia.

Friendly reminder: If you send an email, please create your own instead of
forwarding this one!
