In Saudi Arabia, Waleed Abu al-Khair is the lawyer that peaceful activists turn to when facing human rights abuses. Now, he needs representation from you.
A year ago Waleed, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee was jailed for 15 years under a terrorism law in Saudi Arabia. It’s clear that the authorities are punishing him for protecting and defending human rights.
Waleed has dedicated his life to defending human rights. He has provided legal representation to many activists, including Raif Badawi, the blogger jailed and sentenced to 1,000 lashes.
Waleed has been beaten, deprived of sleep and moved from jail to jail. He is a peaceful man, a prisoner of conscience suffering purely for exercising his right to freedom of expression. He has stood up to tyranny to defend human rights. He has been imprisoned because of his work that helps others to live free.
Sign Amnesty International’s petition to drop all charges against Waleed Abu al-Khair and free him from his unjust imprisonment.
