The latest reports from Saudi Arabia shows that the government is on the brink of executing a teenage boy who was arrested at the age of 15 for attending a protest.Abdullah al - Zaher, who is now 19, was the youngest in a group of juvenile offenders put on death row as part of a ruthless crackdown on political dissent in the conservative kingdom. Previously held alongside fellow juvenile offender Ali al - Nimr, whose case sparked outrage around the world, Abdullah has now been moved to solitary confinement at a new facility and could be beheaded at any moment. In a last - ditch attempt to save their son’s life – and in spite of the danger of repercussions from the Saudi authorities – Abdullah’s parents have gone public with his story. His father Hassan al - Zaher said: “Please help me save my son from the imminent threat of death. He doesn’t deserve to die just because he participated in a protest rally. ” A spokeswoman for Reprieve said Abdullah was arrested “for being in the area of a protest” in March 2012, beaten on the spot by police and tortured. His family and lawyers believe he was forced to sign a document without knowing its contents, and which later was used as a “confession” in the closed trial against him. Saudi government - aligned media outlets have been carrying reports in the past couple of weeks suggesting a mass execution of 52 prisoners is due to take place imminently. And despite assurances to the contrary from the British Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond, Reprieve understands that this group includes al - Nimr and his uncle, Sheikh Nimr, as well as Abdullah. The charity has been tracking the cases of three juveniles, the third being 17 - year - old protester Dawoud al - Marhoon, and believes they could be killed at any moment.Also Read:
