The Egyptian organization for Human Rights calls the Saudi Government to release 35 detainees, who were detained without being trialed

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:

Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR, said that the Saudi authorities’ forcible measures against the Egyptian citizens do not comply with the international covenants for the protection of the migrant manpower and emphasizing the right to fair trial. Abu Saeda asked for the immediate release of the Egyptian detainees according to the international covenants signed by the Saudi government.

Abu Saeda also expressed his sorrow for the absence of the role of the Egyptian Government, represented by the foreign ministry, in protecting the Egyptians’ rights outside the country. The organization asked Mr. Nabel Al Arabi, the Egyptian Foreign Minister to talk to the Saudi foreign minister to set the detainees free. Abu Saeda also asked the Egyptian foreign ministry to secure the Egyptian detainees against any security threatening when deported to Egypt and providing the legal protection according to the international standards of fair trial and guaranteeing regaining all the rights of the Egyptian detainees.
