Saudi rulers are responsible for the bloodshed of scholars
"The Saudi rulers, the judges, and anyone who hears the judgment and does not help these people are responsible for the bloodshed of the 3 scholars," said Mousa Abu-Marzook in a statement.
The Saudi regime is preparing to execute three great scholars after Ramadan known as Sheikh Salman al-Awdah, Awad al-Qarni, and Ali al-Omari, who are known as invitees.
Hamas Political Bureau member Mousa Abu Marzouk has slammed to reports about the execution of scholars who are particularly well-known in the social media, with their global invitation work. "The Saudi rulers, the judges, and anyone who hears the judgment and does not help these people are responsible for the bloodshed of the 3 scholars."
On the other hand, the reactions to this decision of the Saudi regime continue. The Saudi regime was called upon to release prisoners of conscience, to stop all unjust trials against academics, scholars, invitees, and activists.
The Saudi regime had indicted Awdah in 2017 for 37 different charges, such as "opposition to Riyadh's blockade on Qatar, co-operation with the Muslim Brotherhood, hostility towards the government's achievements."
Al-Awdah is an internationally renowned progressive Islamic scholar described by UN experts as a "reformist", al-Qarni is a preacher, academic and author, and al-Omari is a popular broadcaster.
37 scholars and invitees were executed last month on charges of "establishing a terrorist organization and cooperating with the enemy".
Saudi Arabia has frequently drawn international criticism for alleged human rights violations, including the use of repression to detain domestic nationals.
In a January 2018 report, UN experts condemned the kingdom's "continued use of counterterrorism and security-related laws against human rights defenders".
"Despite being elected as a member of the Human Rights Council at the end of 2016, Saudi Arabia has continued its practice of silencing, arbitrarily arresting, detaining and persecuting human rights defenders and critics," the report said.
