Victim's charges: Communicating with foreign entities hostile to the state
Updates on trial: Nassima al-Sadah was summoned to attend a session of her trial in Riyadh Criminal Court on 18 July 2019. She was convicted of charges based on confessions to posting messages on social media including Twitter. Judge Ibrahim Ali al-Luhaidan asked her to sign a document requesting a temporary release until the next hearing, without setting a date for this. On 19 Feb 2020 women rights activists Naseema Alsada, Samar Badawi and Nouf Abdulaziz were called to for a secret trial session in the Criminal Court in which international observers denied from attending it. Due to International pressure the Saudi Authorities have moved the case women rights activists from the Speicilised Criminal Court ( which deals with terrorism cases ) to Criminal court.
