SHAFAQNA– A Saudi lawyer and human rights activist has revealed that the House of Saud is going to execute another bunch of Shia citizens of Qatif and Al-Ahsa regions.
Taha al-Haji in a series of tweets reported that Saudi Prosecutor General has demanded death penalty for a number of Shia men, including Ja’afar Abdel-Vahid Al Yousuf, Ahmed Abdullah al-Saba’a, Habib Yousuf al-Shuwaikhat and Ja’afar Sayf Bazroun. All of them are imprisoned and currently stand trial. Habib al-Shuwaikhat is confirmed to have lost his life in custody.
Al-Haji has called the trial process of the defendants as sham, unfair, intransparent, which facilitates unjust verdicts against them and their imminent execution.
The London-based lawyer has named Asa’ad Makki Shibr Ali, Raid Abdel-Vahid Ahmed al-Khayr, Hussein Habib Al Saeid, Muhammed Alawi al-Shakhouri, Mohammed Isa al-Labad as other people who could be handed down capital punishment.
