How billion-dollar arms deals by Trump, expose the USA as hypocrits on free speech and human rights. Business first....
Saudi Arabia is to behead a deaf and visually impaired man to death for taking part in a protest, it has emerged. Disabled Munir Adam, 23, was arrested in the wake of political demonstrations in the Shia dominated east of the Kingdom in 2012.
A court in Saudi Arabia has upheld his death sentence and Adam has just one appeal left before the King signs an execution warrant. It comes as campaigners complained that US President Donald Trump failed to raise human rights abuses on his recent visit to the Kingdom.
Disabled Munir Adam, 23, was arrested in the wake of political demonstrations in the Shia dominated east of the Kingdom in 2012 and now faces the death penalty. According to the human rights group Reprieve, Adam had medical records proving his disability. He already suffered from impaired sight and hearing, following an accident as a young child. Adam was arrested for violent acts at a protest and accused of 'sending texts', according to Reprieve.
