EDM #84
Tabled 12 June 2014
2014-15 Session
That this House is deeply concerned that Saudi Princesses Sahar and Jawaher, daughters of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, have been denied access to food for more than 60 days and have limited access to water; is further concerned that the two sisters have been held under house arrest in Jeddah for 13 years by their father; notes that they have been isolated in their compound and denied access to the outside world; expresses concern that Sahar and Jawaher's conditions have become increasingly difficult since they spoke out about their imprisonment in the international media earlier this year; calls on the Government to raise the princesses' situation with representatives of Saudi Arabia; and urges the Saudi government to grant the princesses access to food and water at the earliest possible opportunity.
