Her family: The Saudi intelligence services summons Lujain Al-Hathloul to sign a “reporting order.”


Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The brothers of Saudi activist Loujain Al-Hathloul, Alia, Lina and Walid, announced, through their accounts, on Twitter, that the Saudi intelligence services summoned Loujain to sign a “reporting order” of the Supreme Court’s decision.

Aliaa Al-Hathloul said, in an initial tweet, that “the mabahith summoned Jane a while ago for unknown reasons. It appears that it is an attempt to silence her,” as she put it.

In a subsequent tweet, Alia stated that “the mabahith asked Loujain to sign a notification order of the Supreme Court’s decision supporting the ruling of the Specialized Court of Appeal.” She added, “If you still believe in the independence of the Saudi judicial system, then why was she informed of a court ruling from a security authority?”

Saudi authorities released Loujain Al-Hathloul on February 10, after spending 1001 days in prison. On December 28, the Specialized Criminal Court sentenced Loujain to 5 years and 8 months in prison, with a two-year suspension and 10 months of punishment.

On March 10, the Saudi Appeals Court approved the ruling against Loujain by the Specialized Criminal Court that handles terrorism cases.
