Lecture 6 of 6: Khalid Al- Rashid

Khaled Al-Rashed was born on the 18 March 1962 and is a teacher at the Ben Fahd Al-Mufleh Sabiya school in Thuqba, in Al-Dammam province. He is known to be part of the movement called the "reformers".

He was arrested on 19 March 2006 in Mecca, where he was completing the Omra (religious pilgrimage) with his wife. His family believe the arrest is in response to his public comments about government policy.

No judicial warrant was submitted at the time of his arrest and no explanation was given, not even verbally. According to his relatives, he was abused following his arrest and during his imprisonment. After being held in Mecca by the intelligence services, he was transferred to the prison of Al-Hayr near the capital, Riyadh.

During his trial, he was not allowed to see his criminal record, nor was he given recourse to a lawyer, which is in violation of the country's law. There is no doubt that his arrest and conviction are simply due to the fact that he freely and peacefully expressed political views that were critical of the government.
