Arrest about reform, says Saudi’s family
JIDDA — A Saudi reformer arrested on suspicion of “funding terror” conducted charity work for Iraqis and Palestinians with the Saudi government’s knowledge, his family said yesterday.
Saud Mukhtar al-Hashimi, a well-known Islamist critic of Saudi Arabia’s absolute monarchy, was detained in February with nine others.
His family told Reuters they believed his calls for a constitutional monarchy and elected parliament were behind the arrests, not his championing of Iraqi and Palestinian causes.
