Swift show trial for human rights defender Abdullah Al-Maliki on fabricated charges

Local reports received by the Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR) confirmed that the trial in absentia of human rights defender Abdullah Al-Maliki will end quickly this week in Qatar with a harsh sentence expected to be issued against him.

Al-Maliki has been targeted by the State Security Apparatus solely for his peaceful and legitimate activities in the field of human rights, including the peaceful protests outside of Qatari diplomatic missions in Europe that he began organising in late 2021 and has continued until now.

GCHR condemns in the strongest terms the targeting and intimidation of human rights defender Abdullah Al-Maliki by the State Security Apparatus and demands that it stop harassing him, including through judicial harassment.
