Tortured and Jailed by Ale Saud, Shia Cleric Nemr Al Nemr starts Hunger Strike


JNN 22 July 2012 Riyadh : Relatives of jailed Saudi cleric Sheikh Nemr al-Nemr have expressed concern over his health condition, saying the mistreated Shia figure has started an open-ended hunger strike. 

On July 8, Sheikh Nemr was attacked, injured and arrested by Saudi security forces while driving from a farm to his house in the flashpoint city of Qatif, in the kingdom’s oil-rich Eastern Province.

Nemr’s relatives were allowed to visit him for the first time a week after his detention, at the military hospital in Dhahran in the Eastern Province. They said the very brief visit was closely monitored by security forces who told them not say anything more than exchanging general statements.

They said the cleric bore signs of severe torture on his body, his face was bruised in several places and some of his teeth were broken. The relatives had been warned by security forces to keep silent about what they had witnessed.

In 2011, Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province turned into a scene of regular anti-regime demonstrations demanding reforms, an end to widespread discrimination and the release of political prisoners from jail.

The demonstrations soon turned into protests against the Al Saud regime, especially after Saudi security forces killed five protesters and injured many others in November.

The protests have been met with an iron fist in the brutal crackdown by the security forces.

Anti-regime protests have intensified ever since Nemr’s detention, with demonstrations spreading to the capital, Riyadh, and the holy city of Medina over the past week

  1. Wherever you can find , abduct some prominent saud princes , then only one
    can negotiate the safety of the Ayatollah . Otherwise there is no other civil way
    of getting justice to the innocent shia cleric . The zionist-wahabbis can not be tamed by any civilised way . May Allah destroy Aale Saud wahabbi zionist progeny of jews.
