From the killing of Jamal Khashoggi to the imprisonment and torture of activists and journalists, ADHRB documents a timeline of human rights violations in Saudi Arabia under Mohammed bin Salman, and the culture of impunity he has cultivated.

Despite widespread human rights abuses in Bahrain at the hands of security personnel, few are held accountable. ADHRB highlights the persistent culture of impunity perpetuated by the Bahraini government.

Mistreatment of political prisoners in Bahraini jails may amount to “torture”, say eight UN Special Rapporteurs. IFEX member ADHRB provides context for the documented range of abuses prisoners have been subject to.

Rights groups and leading intellectuals call for the immediate release of prominent human rights defender Dr. Mohammed Al-Roken, arbitrarily detained since 2012.
