Student Reportedly Faces Execution in Saudi Arabia

It comes as human rights organisation, Reprieve, also appeals to the USA and British governments for urgent intervention on behalf of at least two Saudi Arabian juveniles and a young man with disabilities who face imminent execution.
Al-Sweikat was accepted by the Western Michigan University and was flying to the USA to visit the school as a prospective student when he was first detained at King Fahd Airport, according to the American Federation of Teachers.
Human rights groups claim the protesters were tortured into confessing.
"This group includes two youths - one of whom, Mujtaba'a al-Sweikat, was at the airport coming to the United States to attend college when he was arrested", the federation said in a statement. "We join the AFT in urging them to use that influence to ask the Saudi government to exhibit compassion". Saudi Arabia carried out at least 154 executions in 2016.
"People must have a right to speak and associate freely", said Weingarten.
"This is an extremely worrying move from the increasingly brutal regime in Saudi Arabia", Maya Foa, Director of Reprieve said. "We implore President Trump, as the standard-bearer for our great nation, to do everything in his power to stop the atrocities that may otherwise take place in Saudi Arabia". "I urge him to use that relationship to plead with the new Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to halt the executions", he said in the statement.
"To carry out these executions would constitute an appalling breach of worldwide law, and world leaders including President Trump, Secretary Tillerson and Prime Minister May should use their close ties to Saudi Arabia to make clear that these egregious abuses must end and the imminent executions must be halted", the organisation said in a statement.
According to the acceptance letter, al-Sweikat planned to study finance.
The American Federation of Teachers is a labor union founded in 1916. If he refused to admit to any allegations, he was again beaten, tortured and subjected to verbal abuse.
It had initially been reported that he planned to attend the University of MI, but they could find no record of his application in Ann Arbor. Reprieve obtained information about Mujtaba and the others from his friends.
On July 10 alone, Saudi Arabia reportedly executed six people for murder and drug offences, a number believed to be the highest in a single day since the year began.
All 14 men and boys were transferred recently to Riyadh from Dammam Mabahith prison in preparation for their execution. However, the current execution practice is so shrouded in secrecy that not even their families know when they will be executed; only the King, who issues a decree ordering their execution, knows, Reprieve said in a briefing shared with the Free Press.
