12:05 pm
years in prison. paul, legit, lee, insulting islam activist. you know how troll detained for seeking the right to drive. those are just 3 examples of human rights violations in saudi arabia. the country hosting this year's t 20 summit since assuming the g 20 presidency, the government of saudi arabia has been hard at work trying to rebrand its image. so there's a large public relations campaign underway in order to encourage investment in the country. and yet behind these initiatives and reform, the reality on the ground is that there is a brutal crackdown being led by the soviet authorities against its own nationals. and that's the reason why european lawmakers are taking a stand you cannot remain silent. last month they passed a resolution calling on the u. officials to downgrade their presence a patient in the summit, even though it's only a virtual event mark to rebel is spearheading,
12:06 pm
they can paint. we are asked for the don't gridding why? because an empty seat is not legal, it would be better to send but of the legation who is able to deliver a message, a strong rest of the lawmakers also sent a personal letter to european commission president or the law funded lie. and european council president shall michel, we ask the commission for their response and we're told the summit, it was too important not to attend. we've been raising our concerns and we discussed further how to improve the human rights situation. the protection of human rights in the kingdom, and we will continue to pay off most attention to this question. if you fishel say it's important to maintain dialogue and keep communication channels open. but human rights groups argue the tourists must use this summit as an opportunity to ramp up the pressure on riyadh and hold the country to account for human rights abuses.
