Subject: VP/HR – Unlawful arrest and imprisonment of two Ahmadi Muslims

Mr Sultan Hamid Marzouk Al-Anzi and Mr Sudi Faleh Awad Al-Anzi are two Ahmadi Muslims living in Saudi Arabia. Both men have been unlawfully arrested and imprisoned on apostasy charges for having converted their religion, which is considered to be a crime in Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, no trial date has been set and both men have been intimidated by clerics to renounce their Ahmadi belief

1. Is the Vice-President/High Representative aware of this case and of the current situation of Mr Sultan Hamid Marzouk Al-Anzi and Mr Sudi Faleh Awad Al-Anzi?
2. Has the Vice-President/High Representative taken any action to protect Mr Sultan Hamid Marzouk Al-Anzi and Mr Sudi Faleh Awad Al-Anzi and, if so, what action?
3. Is the Vice-President/High Representative also willing to remind Saudi Arabia of its obligations under international law regarding freedom of religion and belief, as enshrined, for example, in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights?
