Juliet Wells appears live on Al Jazeera evening news to comment on the legality of executions in Saudi Arabia

16th September 2019

On 12 September 2019, Juliet was asked to comment on the legality of the Saudi government’s recent use of the death penalty, and to analyse Baroness Helena Kennedy QC’s July 2019 report on recent executions in Saudi Arabia.

As the report identified, there has been an alarming rise in the number of executions in recent months, with political activists, human rights defenders and religious minorities among those targeted. The majority of those executed were subject to grossly unfair investigative and trial processes, some were children at the time of their alleged offending, and the manner of executions violated international standards. The interview followed an event at the 42ndRegular Session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, at which Juliet gave an address concerning these issues.
