Arabian Shiite Warns the Saudi Govt against Prosecutor’s demand of Death Penalty to the Shia Cleric


Protest for the Release of Saudi Shia Cleric Nemr Al NemrJNN 30 Mar 2013 Riyadh : A Saudi prosecutor has demanded the death penalty for prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, while the Shiite’s of Arabia have warned the Saudi Government of the dire consequences , against the move for the demand of Death Penalty to the Cleric , who was arrested last year over calls for the release of political prisoners.

Local media reported on Wednesday that the prosecutor, whose name was not mentioned, accused Nimr of ‘aiding ’ and ‘instigating unrest,’ and called for the execution of the Shia cleric.

Shia Muslims and regime opponents in Saudi Arabia have warned against the prosecutor general’s move to demand the death penalty for prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.

They say Saudi authorities made a big mistake by attempting to assassinate Sheikh al-Nimr and that it will be an even bigger mistake if the court issues a death verdict for the cleric.

Brochures have been distributed in the eastern province of Qatif warning that such a verdict will lead to great outrage against the regime in the eastern Shia-dominant regions of the country.

They say the Americans are responsible for the Sheikh’s life as Washington is the main supporter of the Saudi regime.

Sheikh Nimr was attacked, injured and arrested by Saudi security forces en route to his house in the Qatif region of Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province on July 8, 2012.

The cleric had called for the release of all those detained in protests against the Saudi regime, and all the prisoners of conscience. His arrest sparked protests in Eastern Province.

Nimr appeared in court earlier this week for the first time since July.

His family members said he was badly tortured in jail. Nimr’s sister recently said that prison authorities were denying her brother medical care.

According to Saudi activists, most of the detained political activists are being held by the regime without trial or charges.

Since February 2011, demonstrators have held anti-regime protests on an almost regular basis in Saudi Arabia, mainly in Qatif and the town of Awamiyah in Eastern Province, primarily calling for the release of all political prisoners, freedom of expression and assembly, and an end to widespread discrimination.

Since November 2011, when Saudi security forces killed five protesters and injured many others in Eastern Province, the demonstrations have turned into protests against the Al Saud regime.

According to Human Rights Watch, the Riyadh regime “routinely represses expression critical of the government.”
