April 21st, 2011 by Editor

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) has expressed its worry after being informed that 35 Egyptians exist in the Saudi prisons without trial and considered this detention as a violation of all the principals of the fair trial.

On Thursday, April 21, the organization has received complaints from the families of the above mentioned people as following:

“The Saudi authorities have politically detained 35 Egyptians without considering any of the fair trial standards. Although, they submitted many complaints to the Saudi ambassador in Cairo, they received no reply, and that leaded them to go on a sit-in on Thursday, April 21, 2011, in front of the Saudi embassy in Cairo to express rejection of ignoring their complaints”.

The detainee’s families also said that there are many people in the prisons including the following 35 names:
