Saudi authorities have recently arrested a number of reformers who are being accused of inciting slogans that are, according to the Saudi government, against the national interests of the Kingdom. Sources told Al Bawaba that the reformers were arrested by the authorities to prevent them from forming a local human rights panel. Previous attempts to allow such a panel was rejected by the Saudi government.

The Saudi government had itself formed an official human rights panel to preempt any attempts for the formation of an independent one. The detained reformers were among 116 Saudi intellectuals that signed a petition last December demanding the government put a time-table for political reforms aimed at moving the country towards a constitutional monarchy.
