Rhys Davies appears on Al Jazeera to comment on a request by British parliamentarians to visit Saudi women activists currently imprisoned.

2nd January 2019

Rhys Davies was interviewed on Al Jazeera television and asked to comment on the likely outcomes following a request by the Detention Review Panel to visit women activists currently imprisoned in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia detained a number of activists last year. Recent reports have suggested that those individuals have been denied basic legal rights and have been subjected to torture whilst in detention. A cross-party group of parliamentarians, as well as leading international lawyers, have written to the Saudi embassy in the United Kingdom asking for assistance in organising a visit to those activists.
