Prince Sattam bin Khalid Al Saud responded to the US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, regarding the Saudi Abdulrahman Al-Sadhan case, calling on Americans to stop trading in human rights.
This comes after Pelosi published a statement about the sentence issued against Al-Sadhan, his imprisonment for 20 years and the imposition of a travel ban on him, describing the verdict as “brutal.”
“The brutal verdict against the aid worker, Abdul Rahman Al-Sadhan, who came after his disappearance for many years and imprisoned without trial, is a grave and horrific injustice,” Pelosi said in the statement. Condemned by all freedom-loving people around the world. “
The brutal sentencing of humanitarian aid worker Abdulrahman al-Sadhan, which follows his disappearance & imprisonment w/o trial, is an appalling injustice. Riyadh needs to know that the world is watching Saudi Arabia’s disturbing actions & that we will hold them accountable.

In response, Prince Sattam said in a series of tweets on his official page via Twitter that “Pelosi describes the verdict of someone who was defending ISIS as a brutal act. Al-Qaeda affiliation is only suspicion, without any evidence, that is the real cruelty. ”
He added, “The statements of the American administration and government figures are interference in the internal affairs of countries under the pretext of rights, and they are the first to ignore them if they conflict with their national security and interests. Stop trading in rights, as it has become exposed to the youngest Arab citizen.”
1️⃣ President of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi describes the verdict of someone who was defending ISIS as a brutal act. The brutality is what happened in Guantanamo prison in terms of arrests and torture without trials or lawyers for many years on suspicion of belonging to Al Qaeda only suspicion without any evidence that is the real brutality
