Saudi Wahabi Crown Prince Orders Ruthless Crack Down Against Shia Protesters


JNN 15 Dec 2011 Riyadh : Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz al Saud has reportedly ordered police chiefs through an official letter not to show any mercy to anti-government protesters.

Nayef wrote the letter in March, addressing police chiefs across Saudi Arabia, including those overseeing the security forces in the holy cities of Mecca and Medina.

According to the letter, Nayef ordered crackdown on protesters and gave a green light to officers and troops to open fire on those demonstrating against the government’s restriction of the people’s freedom.

The ultraconservative kingdom is known for its intolerance of dissent.

Since the beginning of 2011, Saudi forces have been suppressing anti-regime protests.

In March, the Saudi Interior Ministry called all public gatherings “illegal.”

Amnesty International accuses Saudi authorities of arresting hundreds of people who have been demanding political and social reforms and calling for the release of their relatives, detained without charge or trial during the uprising.

More than 300 people have been detained for taking part in peaceful demonstrations in the kingdom’s Eastern Province since March, Amnesty says.

The demonstrations, however, have been raging on, despite the suppressive measures put in place by Riyadh.

Thousands of Shiite people rally in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA)’s Eastern Province to protest against the military intervention ordered by the ruling Saudi family in the neighboring Bahrain.

The rallies, which were held in the Qatif city and the village of Awamiyah on Wednesday, saw the attendants insisting on the cessation of the military presence.

The Saudi troops, together with forces from the United Arab Emirates, invaded Bahrain on March 14 to assist the Bahraini government in its quelling peaceful popular protests in the Persian Gulf island.

The protesters also renewed their call for an end to the Saudi regime’s brutal crackdown on the Saudi dissidents.

Saudi forces in the ultraconservative kingdom, which is known for its intolerance of dissent, have been suppressing rallies against the ruling House of Saud since the beginning of 2011.
