Anthony Joshua urged to call out Saudi Arabian human rights abuses

The Guardian reports on a letter sent to boxer Anthony Joshua by Yasser al-Khayat, whose brother Mustafa was executed in Saudi Arabia, asking him to speak out on the human rights abuses of the country.

Jeed Basyouni, head of Reprieve’s work in the Middle East and North Africa, said: “Mohammed bin Salman is trying to use major sporting events like this to sportswash his blood-soaked regime. Anthony Joshua can change that by using his visit to speak out about human rights to help save lives”.
