Saudi Women Activists' Trials to Continue after 3rd Hearing

Wednesday, 03 April 2019 08:38 AM EDT

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Nearly a dozen Saudi women's rights activists, most of them imprisoned, attended their third court session and were told their trials will continue for at least two more weeks.

People with knowledge of the trials say most of the women were told by the Riyadh criminal court on Wednesday their next court session would be in two weeks. They spoke with the AP on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal.

Meanwhile, two women who were granted temporary release last week— Aziza al-Yousef and Eman al-Najfan— were told their next court session would take place after the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which coincides with early June. The king traditionally issues pardons after Ramadan, however such pardons do not typically include political detainees.
