Press Release NAAS Statement on the release of the CIA report on the murder of Jamal Khashoggi

The National Assembly Party (NAAS) welcomes the decision of the US administration to release the unclassified CIA report on the killing of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi to Congress. We also welcome the public engagement of the US administration with the Saudi government to promote respect for human rights and the release of several political prisoners. We always call for involving the Saudi public through civil society institutions in the diaspora, academics and activists, in matters that concern the future of our country. Inside Saudi Arabia, there is an unprecedented and unlawful campaign of arrests, arbitrary detention, travel bans, and intimidation against reputable community leaders, journalists, human rights activists, religious reformers, and women activists that affected thousands of people.

No negotiations with the Saudi authorities before the immediate release of prisoners of conscience

The National Assembly party (NAAS) is watching the failure of governments, parties and influential entities to observe the violations committed by the Saudi authorities, to encourage for more reforms, often due to the influence of huge promotional campaigns which are funded by the regime to amplify achievements and to mask a major deterioration in rights and freedoms. The party rejects the promotional claims of the regime while it unjustly resumes arbitrary arrests, secret trials and horrendous torture and slow killing of detainees, all in order to deprive people from the rights to free expression, assembly and to block their access to credible information on the state’s resources and the real drives for its policies.

The NAAS Party’s statement on the normalization

The international news agencies have published news of a meeting between Benjamin Netanyahu and Mohammed Bin Salman in NEOM, though the meeting was denied by the Saudi Foreign Ministry, it was confirmed by multiple news sources. We, at the National Assembly Party (NAAS), have followed several previous political attempts towards the normalization of relationships with Israel via the media, targeting and arrests of critics of normalization, and targeting of the Palestinian community leaders in Saudi Arabia. These attempts are taking place while Saudi people are silenced and for reasons unjustified by national interests.
