بيان صحفي

21st January 2007
التـمـاس

نطالب الحكومة السعودية بالافراج عن الأخ عبد الله ابوبكر حسن ليبي الجنسية مقيم في ايرلندا, والاخ عبد الحكيم الجيلاني البريطاني الجنسية اليمني الاصل : المحجوزين من قبل السلطات الأمنية بالمملكة العربية السعودية .
ولقد اعلنت الجالية الليبية في ايرلندا عن فقدان الأخ عبد الله ابوبكر حسن في اكتوبر 2005. وقد ارسلت برسائل الى وزارة الخارجية الايرلندية مفادها ان الاخ عبدالله قد اختطف في السعودية. وانه لا احد يعرف اين هو وان الفندق الذي كان مقيما فيه اعلمنا بعد مكالمة هاتفية ان الجماعة التي اقتادته يعتقد انهم من جهاز الامن السعودي. وقد قامت الخارجية الايرلندية باتصالاتها من اجل معرفة اين هو. وبعد فترة من الاتصالات المكثفة حصل انه قد سمح له بالاتصال بعائلته ليطمئنهم عن صحته وانه سليم ولكن لم يسمح له ان يذكر اين هو .
واننا كمنظمة حقوقية نذكر الحكومة السعودية بانه لا يمكن ان تحجز انسان - قدم للحج - لمدة خمسة عشر شهرا الا بتهمة واضحة وانه يجب ان يقدم للمحاكمة في حالة وجود تهمة. وهذا طبقا لمواثيق الامم المتحدة والشريعة الاسلامية. ونذكر الحكومة السعودية بقانون حقوق الانسان الصادر عن الامم المتحدة الذي ينص على:
"حق براءة المتهم الى ان تثتب ادانته وانه لا يؤاخذ بالشبهة او الظن ولا يسجن بهما".
وان الاخذ بالظن لا يجوز في عرف الاسلام ولا في اعراف العالم . وانه لابد من ايضاح الامر لاهلي هذين المحتجزين حيث انهم قلقين عليهما وعلى مصيرهما.

Press release
Request to release detainees

We request the government of Saudi Arabia to immediately release detainees Mr. Abdullah Abobakr Hassan, whose country of residence is Ireland, and Mr. Abdulhakeem Ajilani, whose country of residence is the United Kingdom, both of whom have been interned by the Saudi authorities for the last fifteen months.

The two men travelled to Saudi Arabia to book hotels for the group pilgrimage (Hajj) of 2005, but were detained by the Saudi detective police and have been held without charge ever since.

The matter has been brought to the attention of the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs by the Libyan community in Ireland, who reported that Mr. Abdullah Abobakr Hassan was missing and that his wife was uncertain of his fate. The Libyan community in Ireland forwarded letters to the Irish and Saudi Arabia governments to find out where he was. After lengthy communications, the response of the Saudi authorities was to allow him to call his family without saying where he was, while still keeping him in custody.

Although the Irish government has raised the matter with the government of Saudi Arabia since October 2005, no apparent progress has so far been made towards securing his release.

We remind the government of Saudi Arabia of the legal principle established in Article 11 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1948: “Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence.”

As a human rights organization, we request the government of Saudi Arabia in case of no charge or court proceedings to permit both detainees to return to their respective countries of residence immediately.

We also request the Irish government to intervene on behalf of the two men by enquiring as to why they have been detained and by asking that they be released without delay if no charges are brought against them. We consider it the duty of the Irish government - as of every government - to uphold the fundamental human rights outlined by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1948, and to require the same standards of every country with which it has friendly relations.
