PostSubject: Saudi Women's Rights Activists Appear In Riyadh Court   Wed Mar 13, 2019 7:37 pm

Saudi Arabian women's rights activist Loujain Alhathloul was among several women to appear in a closed-door hearing today in a case that has added to heightened global scrutiny over the kingdom's human rights record.
This is the first time Alhathloul appeared in court since she was picked up in a sweep of arrests in Saudi Arabia last May that targeted rights activists, journalists and academics. Reporters and diplomats were barred from attending the session.
"[The women's rights activists] haven't been given access to a lawyer and now today they have been charged," Samah Hadid, the Middle East director of campaigns at Amnesty International, told NPR.
Amnesty is working to verify the charges against Alhathloul, which include contacting foreign entities and international organizations.
The government has not publicly shared the charges against the activists.
