Human Rights Crisis in Saudi Arabia

Human Rights Crisis in Saudi Arabia

On the occasion of 43rd session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, No Peace Without Justice (NPWJ) together with the International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights (FIFDH) have the pleasure to invite you to a panel discussion on “Human Rights Crisis in Saudi Arabia” to be held at the Geneva Press Club on Tuesday 10 March 2020 at 9:00 am – 11:00 am.

Freedom of expression and freedom from torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, are essential building blocks of a democratic society. Suppression of dissent by any State power violates the freedom of its own citizens in a flagrant breach of international human rights. Equally, holding people in degrading and inhuman ways, and in the worst case, torturing them is unacceptable for any UN member state.
