Trapped in prison

Arab News reports on the case of a Saudi national trapped in a Lebanese jail because there is no president to sign his release papers.

According to Saudi Arabia’s Human Rights Commission, the prisoner is one of 16 Saudis held for their involvement in battles in Nahr Al-Bared.

A HRC team recently concluded their second visit to Lebanon and Syria to check up on the conditions of the prisoners.

Spokesperson Dr. Zuhair Al-Harthi said the prisoners were offered poor services in Lebanese jails. He also mentioned that they were not receiving proper medical treatment.
