Petition His Majesty King Salman Release our father Ali from Torture & False Imprisonment


What would you do if you knew your father's basic human rights were taken away and he was subjected to inhumane treatment daily?                                                                                

A 57-year old man who is a loving caring father, friend, and family man is tortured daily in Al-Ha'ir Prison in Saudi Arabia. 

Our Father Ali, is not a political activist and has commited no crimes. While traveling on business he was taken just before boarding his flight to exit the country. Since his arrest on Oct. 18, 2013, he was not charged with any crimes and the authorities refused to state a reason for his detainment. He is simply a man caught up in a horrible nightmare. 

No human being should be ripped away from his family & thrown into a cell without adequate food or clothing, and be subject to daily beatings and other forms of torture. The authorities will not allow his family to provide him with warm clothes to wear or provide appropriate medical atttention for his heart condition. He is freezing at night and very malnourished. He has been beaten so badly, prison authories were forced to hospitalize him for 5 days. 

After several weeks, our family was allowed a visit and our eldest brother left the United States to see our father. The state he was in was horrifying, he was beaten so much he was brought out in a wheel chair no socks or shoes on wearing thin dirty clothes. He was very thin and could not stop crying with fear. It breaks our hearts to know our loving father is treated in such a way.

Multiple stories of Al-Hair prison, where he is being held, tell of the horrors that occur there regularly. It is known internationally as one of the top 10 deadliest prisions in the world, due to extremely poor conditions and systematic torture. Death by torture is a common occurance. 

At this present time we would like to update that after 3 years of court proceedings, the ministry of interior has passed judgment on our father. They have sentanced him to 18 years imprisonment & 18 years subsequent denial of leaving the Saudi Arabia. The prosecution did not present any factual evidence other than, a confession obtained under duress (physical and mental torture). Therefore we are urgently requesting help, regarding this gross injustice, from any agencies or persons that can assist in his release.  

We ask that you please help us by signing & sharing this petition to appeal for mercy from the Saudi Royal Family and demand that he be set free to be with his family again in the United States. 


This petition was created on behalf of Ali by his children Tangia, Yusef, Sumaya, Rashad, Zak, and Hanna, all of which are from and reside in Colorado. 

To everyone in Saudi Arabia that has signed the petition, thank you for your courage to speak up against this injustice. At your request, we have had the details of the situation and step by step directions on how to sign the petition, translated into Arabic for those that do not speak English.

بدأ الكابوس بتاريخ ١٨ اكتوبر ٢٠١٣ بمطار الملك خالد الدولي بالرياض. تم خطف واعتقال الوالد دون اي تهم او محاكمه ويتم تعذيبه بشكل يومي

الوالد كان موظف مدني لدى الحكومه لاكثر من ٣٠ سنه ولم يكن ناشط سياسي و لذلك فان ظروف الاعتقال غير منطقية 

لم نعلم بالتعذيب الا بتاريخ ٣ ديسمبر ٢٠١٣ حين سمح لنا بالزيارة رأى أخونا الاكبر حالة الوالد التي قطعت قلبه وقلوبنا عندما سمعنا بالتفاصيل. اخرجو والدنا  بكرسي المعاقين حيث ليس لديه القوه لكي يمشي بنفسه واخبرنا بادخاله الى المستشفى التي حالتها اسواء من السجن لمدة ٥ أيام من بعد التعذيب الدائم واليومي. صوته مبحوح من كثر الصراخ والبكاء. والدنا يبلغ ٥٢ من العمر ولديه الضغط والسكر ولا نعلم لماذا يفعلون هذه الأشياء الشنيعه به لكن نطلب من ربنا ان يرحمهم ويغفر لهم ذنوبهم ويحمي والدي من كل شر يا رب. اتمنى ان توقعوا العريضه لكي تاصل اكبر عدد أصوات للجلالته الملك سلمان بن عبدالعزيز آل سعود  ولصاحب السمو الملكي محمد بن نايف بن عبدالعزيز آل سعود وزير وزارة الداخلية لكي يفك اسر الوالد

هذه الخطوات لتوقيع العريضه

الخانه الاولى تكتب اسمك الاول

الخانه الثانيه اسمك الاخير او اسم مستعار اذا ترغبوا

الخانه الثالثه ايميلك

الخانه الرابعه الحاره التي تسكن بها او حاره مستعاره 

الخانه الخامسه المدينه التي تسكن بها

بين الخانه الخامسه ،السادسه يوجد سطر مكتوب بالرمادي Outside U.S.? يتم الضغط عليه ثم تختار من الائحه علي اليسار بلدك 

الخانه السادسه الرمز البريدي او  اي ٥  ارقام اذا لا تعرفها

الخانه السابعه السبب الذي دفعك للتوقيع علي العريضه لكن ليس اجباري

بعدها يتم الضغط على الزر الاحمر وهكذا يتم التوقيع


اشكركم من كل قلبي كاختكم على مساعدتكم وربي يحميكم وجميع محبيكم من كل شر

 اذا ما عليكم أمر ارسلو وانشرو العريضه على تويتر وفيس بوك وأي مكان أخر لان كل ما زاد عدد التواقيع كل ما اخرجو الوالد بوقت اسرع

الله يعطيكم آلف عافيه يا رب
