The Saudi Civil and Political Rights Association (ACPRA) invites everyone to attend the sixth session of the trial of its co-founders, human rights activists, Abdullah al-Hamid and Mohammed al-Qahtani
On Saturday 24 November 2012, at 9 in the morning, the sixth session of the trial of human rights activists Abdullah al-Hamid and Mohammed al-Qahtani will be held in Riyadh criminal court. The court is located in King Faisal street, West of SAMA building. The hearing will take place in hall number (10) at the appellant court building next door, main entrance is through the north gate, just south of old Riyadh water tower.
ACPRA calls on independent journalists, human rights advocates, lawyers, law students, concerned citizens, and political reform activists to attend the hearing in support and affirmation of the principle of public trials. Moreover, attendants will have the opportunity to monitor the trial process, evaluate the performance of the judiciary and prosecution, and measure objectively the state-run media. Saudi state-run media attended the fifth session of the trial. However, presence of independent journalists is quite crucial to impartially inform the public of what really happens inside the court room.
