US CONGRESSMEN CALL FOR SAUDI TO RELEASE DETAINED DUAL CITIZEN

Senior US Congressmen have called for the Saudi Arabian authorities to release dual citizen Walid Fitaihi, who has been detained and tortured in Saudi prisons.

In a joint statement issued on Thursday by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lead Republican Michael McCaul and Chairman Eliot Engel said that Fitaihi must be released. “We are deeply concerned by reports that Dr Walid Fitaihi, a dual US-Saudi citizen in Saudi custody, has been tortured,” the statement read.

They added: “Allegations like this are stunning and the reported lack of due process [in Saudi Arabia] is completely unacceptable. Torture and coercion of all prisoners must end.”

Concluding their statement, the Congressmen said: “We call on Saudi Arabia to immediately release Dr Fitaihi and allow him to travel outside Saudi Arabia.”

Fitaihi, who holds a US passport, graduated from Harvard University and has been detained in Saudi Arabia since November 2017 without trial. This week’s statement was issued in the wake of a report published by the New York Times stating that Fitaihi was tortured inside Saudi jails.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, we all understand that Saudi Arabia is a brutal place, with no true Constitution, and is run by the Butcher of Yemen, who understands, at least in theory, what human rights laws are, but doesn't want them introduced into his country, at least not while his regime is still in power.

But what is it about this guy, which makes him so valuable to Saudi Arabia?!?

It looks as though what he has done, is raise the level of health care in Saudi Arabia, for many of the people who would otherwise not have care.

This is what he says in his English bio:

"Affiliation
International Medical Center

About:
My mission in life is to improve the quality of health care in the Middle East through founding the International Medical Center (IMC) @theimcjeddah, and ensuring that it truly represents a major paradigm shift in health care delivery in the region."

Did he open his mouth and say something which infuriated the murderous Crown Prince bin Salman, who then gave the order to have him arrested and tortured?!?

Unfortunately, it appears to me that whatever this guy did, he did an industrial-strength job of pissing off the Prince; and these acts of torture will continue against other prisoners, until either Bin Salman dies, or is deposed by a bunch of very, VERY angry Saudis.

And President Trump, where, please, the hell are you in this case?!? Can you not plead, personally, for this guy?!?

I mean, after all, the Butcher of Yemen is one of your BFFs in the Middle East, right?!? Do you not think he wouldn't listen to you, if you called him?!?
