On Saturday 12 March, Mohammed bin Salman oversaw the execution of 81 men in the largest mass execution in the country’s history.
Instead of condemning this brutal and shocking act, Boris Johnson visited Saudi Arabia - and shook hands with Mohammed bin Salman. Our Prime Minister’s visit virtually guaranteed more executions would take place. Three people were executed on the day of Boris Johnson’s visit and four more people were killed the day after.
We fear for the lives of every person who is currently on death row in Saudi Arabia. That includes our clients, like Abdullah al-Howaiti who was just 14 years old when he was arrested and tortured into signing a “confession".
We’re demanding Boris Johnson change course - and publicly condemn these killings before many more lives are lost.
