Ongoing outrageous detention of women in Saudi Arabia
The Saudi regime continues to violate women’s rights by arresting a number of activists, women’s rights defenders and freedom advocates.
Sanad has monitored the regime’s ongoing arbitrary detention of at least 52 women in Saudi Arabia, all of whom were subjected to wide range of violations, most notably: arbitrary arrest, enforced disappearance, and denial of access legal counsel. A significant number of arrested women were also subjected to torture, forced confessions, and sexual harassment.
The Saudi regime has repeatedly claimed to have improved women’s rights in Saudi Arabia, but in reality, this is nothing more than a show and failed attempt to polish the regimes image before the international community and to cover up its heinous violations against women and human rights activists.
