Saudi Arabia passes anti-terror law, banning defamation

Published: 12.16.13, 20:16 / Israel News

Saudi Arabia's Cabinet has approved a new anti-terrorism draft law that criminalizes acts that disturb public order, defame the reputation of the state or threaten the kingdom's unity.

 

A rights activist and a rights lawyer decreed the law as too broad, saying that besides terrorists, it could be used to target civil society activists calling for democratic reforms. They spoke anonymously for fear of retribution. (AP)
