Saudi Arabia: Release Cleric Being Held Without Charge

Target: Attorney General Sheikh Saud Al-Mujib, Saudi Arabia

Goal: Release cleric who is being held by Saudi Arabian authorities without charge.

A cleric in Saudi Arabia has been held by authorities for over four months without charge. Salman al-Awda has been detained for months, while his family is banned from traveling. Al-Awda was accused of acting against Saudi Arabia after tweeting for for peace.

Dozens of people were arrested alongside al-Awda during a crackdown by Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. However, these individuals and families are being punished with no evidence against them. Al-Awda is being held in solitary confinement.

With no evidence against al-Awda, he should be released immediately. To hold both he and his family in detainment is an abuse of human rights. Sign the petition to demand that he be released.


Dear Attorney General Al-Mujib,

Salman al-Awda has been held in solitary confinement without charge for over four months. Meanwhile, his family has been banned from traveling. Dozens of other citizens of Saudi Arabia face this same fate.

Al-Awda has done nothing to threaten Saudi Arabia. He has done nothing treasonous. He should not be held in confinement and treated as a criminal. To do so is to severely abuse human rights. I demand that he, and others like him, be freed.
