Violation details

The alleged offences, of murder and armed robbery, took place when al-Huwaiti was only 14 years old, and the court proceedings against him were marred by numerous violations of international fair trial guarantees, including relying on confessions allegedly extracted under torture.

Timeline

  • 2 March 2022 - The Criminal Court in Tabuk sentenced al-Huwaiti to death on the basis of qisas (requital, a form of retributive justice).
  • November 2021 - The Supreme Court had overturned a previous death sentence handed down to al-Huwaiti by the Tabuk Criminal Court, in November 2019, that time on the basis of hadd al-hiraba (one of a number of hudud offences, specific crimes that carry prescribed penalties in Islamic law, as interpreted by a judge).
