Londoners decry Ayatollah Nimr’s sentence outside Saudi embassy


Activists have once again gathered outside the Saudi embassy in London calling on Riyadh to halt the execution of prominent religious scholar Ayatollah Sheikh Nimr Baqi al-Nimr and his nephew.


 
 
According to the reports, the participants in the Wednesday rally held placards reading “free Sheikh Nimr" and "sentenced to death due to the idea of election system."
 
"We call on Saudi Arabia to halt these executions and either releases these innocent prisoners or we call for... a fair and public trial under the watchful eyes of the world," Russia's Ruptly news agency quoted an activist as saying.
 
"And we will not be silenced as you do to your citizens in Saudi Arabia,” another activist said.
 
On Sunday, Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court upheld a death sentence issued against the cleric last year. The execution warrant will be sent to Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to be approved and then implemented.
 
Ali Mohammed Baqir al-Nimr, the cleric’s nephew, has also been sentenced to death over his alleged role in anti-regime protests in 2012, when he was 17 years old.
 
"When he joined the protest three years ago he was only 17, he was underage and he only participated in a peaceful protest, you cannot take a boy and... condemn him to death because he protested against you and he called for some political reforms, this is outrageous, this is outside any human decency," said political activist Saeed Shehabi during the protest rally.
 
Meanwhile, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has called on Saudi Arabia to halt Sheikh Nimr’s execution.
