Activists say KSA anti-terror law targets political dissent


Human rights activists in Saudi Arabia have raised concerns over a new anti-terrorism draft law passed by the kingdom, saying it will further crackdown on political dissent.

Activists say that the law, approved by the Saudi cabinet on Monday, would allow the kingdom to intensify its crackdown on political dissent and will also target civil society activists.

The cabinet said in a statement that the law “will strike a balance between the risk of terrorist acts and human rights protection. “

The statement said the crimes include “disturbing public order, or undermining the security and stability of the nation, or exposing the nation’s unity to danger... or defaming the reputation of the state or its position.
