Saudi Women's Rights Activist Sentenced Nearly 6 Years

(DUBAI, United Arab Emirates) — One of Saudi Arabia’s most prominent women’s rights activists was sentenced Monday to nearly six years in prison, according to state-linked media, under a vague and broadly worded counterterrorism law. Biden has vowed to review the U.S.-Saudi relationship and take into greater consideration human rights and democratic principles. The 31-year-old Saudi activist has long been defiantly outspoken about human rights in Saudi Arabia, even from behind bars. Al-Hathloul’s family said the prosecutor’s evidence also included her contacts with rights group Amnesty International and speaking to European diplomats about human rights in Saudi Arabia. She was then forced on a plane to Saudi Arabia, where she was barred from traveling and later arrested.
