Два пъти тази година арестуват Хатлул, активистка за женски права. Грозят я до 20 години затвор. Толкова за новите свободи за жените. Или Washington Post е руска пропаганда?
Саудитите са арестували и жени на 70 и 65 години, ветерани в борбата за правото на жените да карат кола още от 90-те. И тях ги грозят 20 години затвор.Despite apparently complying with Saudi Arabia’s attempts to silence her — Hathloul’s last tweet to her 316,000 followers was on March 12 — she was arrested again last week in what appeared to be a particularly brutal crackdown on female activists in the kingdom.A total of seven Saudis were detained — five women and two men who had supported their cause, including a lawyer who had represented Hathloul in the past..Saudi Arabia’s Okaz newspaper reported on Sunday that those arrested could face up to 20 years in jail. They have been publicly branded traitors by pro-government media.
Also detained was Aisha al-Mana, a 70-year-old who was among the first to challenge the driving ban, one of more than 40 women who drove in a convoy in Riyadh in 1990, along with Madeha al-Ajroush, a psychotherapist in her mid-60s, who is also now in detention.
Това, което се случва, не представлява "старата СА", а "новата СА"What’s happening is unprecedented.” It doesn’t represent the “old” Saudi Arabia, he said, but the “new Saudi.”
