Saudi Arabia 'arrests 400 human rights supporters'
Monday 17 May 1993
The Arab Organisation of Human Rights (AOHR) said more than 10,000 people had signed a petition of support for the Committee for the Defence of Legitimate Rights, set up on 7 May. It expressed 'serious concern over the measures taken by the Saudi authorities against the founders and members of this committee' and urged King Fahd to call off the measures. The government stripped the seven founders of their jobs last week. Yesterday, the group's leader, Abdallah al-Masaari, said his son Mohammad, a university professor, was arrested at the weekend.
