Sentencing of Saudi Human Rights Lawyer Waleed Abu al-Khair

The United States is troubled by the 15-year prison sentence, travel ban, and steep fine handed down to human rights lawyer and activist Waleed Abu al-Khair. Mr. al-Khair’s situation is discussed in our most recent Human Rights Report on Saudi Arabia. We urge the Saudi government to respect international human rights norms, a point we make to them regularly.
