In this submission, Amnesty International notes that Saudi Arabia appears to have implemented none of the central recommendations made in its previous UPR, including to ratify key human rights treaties. With regard to the human rights situation on the ground, violations have continued and in some cases worsened. Amnesty International raises concerns with regard to some of the most prominent violations including arbitrary detention, unfair trials and travel bans; the death penalty; torture and ill-treatment; and discrimination against women, migrant workers and minorities.
