Amnesty International calls for the immediate release of prisoners of conscience in Saudi prisons

Amnesty International called on the Saudi authorities to immediately release the women human rights activists in the kingdom's prisons unconditionally, in light of the grave violations they face.

The organization said that, while Saudi Arabia celebrates allowing women to drive, the most prominent women human rights defenders are still in prison, stressing that the authorities are seeking social reforms, but these reforms cannot cover up human rights violations and brutal repression of activists.

 The organization pointed out that it has been nearly two years since the Saudi authorities detained Lujain Al-Hathloul, Iman Al-Nafjan, Aziza Al-Youssef, and a group of Saudi activists who are simply calling for equality and defending human rights in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Amnesty International explained that many of these women have led the struggle to lift the ban on women driving in recent years, and the ban was lifted in June 2018, but women who worked to lift this ban legally have not had a chance to sit behind bars while they are locked in cells.
