Majlis Statement

Parliamentarians issued a statement on Tuesday denouncing the death sentence for prominent Saudi Shiite cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr. The MPs said the execution of the cleric will have widespread repercussions, urging Riyadh to overturn the sentence. A Saudi court has recently sentenced Sheikh al-Nimr, an outspoken cleric from the predominantly Shiite Eastern Province who has led protests for greater rights for Shiites, to death on charges of “sedition”.
