#FreeLujainNow! Today Saudi women's rights activist Lujain al-Hathloul goes on trial

She has fought for an end to male guardianship and courageously resisted the ban on driving for women: Saudi women's rights activist Lujain al-Hathloul. In March 2018 she was kidnapped in the United Arab Emirates and put in prison in Saudi Arabia, where she was also tortured.

Heute ist die erste Anhörung vor Gericht für Lujain al-Hathloul. Was macht die EU in dem Fall? Darüber habe ich mit dem euobserver gesprochen:

“The EU, and especially the EU delegation in Riyadh, is pushing hard to be allowed to be able to attend the trials, now and in the past, but they were never allowed in.”


“The EU could pressure Saudi Arabia more if the EU and the member states would be on the same line. This is not the case today as France and other countries are still selling arms to the Saudis despite repeated calls by the European parliament for a ban”.
