Amnesty Criticizes Saudi Arabia over Treatment of Women
Human rights group Amnesty International has criticized Saudi Arabia for practicing almost total discrimination against women, in a report presented in Bonn Wednesday.
The London-based organization denounced the "unjust judicial system," torture and religious intolerance which, it said, constituted "grave human rights breaches".
According to the report, women cannot move freely in public, are prevented from engaging in certain professions and can rarely expect justice in the courts – BONN (AFP)
