Home » News » Tweet King Salman

Waleed Abu al-Khair is a prominent Saudi Arabian human rights lawyer who has represented many victims of human rights violations, including his brother-in-law Raif Badawi, who was sentenced to 1,000 lashes for blogging about free speech. After being harassed and and interrogated on numerous occasions by the authorities, Waleed was sentenced on 6 July 2014 to 15 years in prison, plus a 15-year travel ban. He was found guilty of 'insulting the judiciary', 'disobeying the ruler' and 'harming the reputation of the Kingdom'. Waleed suffers from diabetes, and says he has been tortured. He has been regularly moved between prisons, making it difficult for his wife and child to visit him.
You can support Waleed with a card or by sending a letter or a tweet to His Majesty King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud. To find out how, click here.
