(CIHRS/IFEX) - 2 July 2012 - “The government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has succeeded at placing itself as a direct enemy to human rights, whether by continuing to stifle the rights and freedoms of its own people; or by vigorously supporting oppressive governments in desperate attempts to prevent the substantial transformations in the balance of power unfolding across the Arab region from reaching the Kingdom,” said CIHRS today in a statement.

Saudi Arabia, in a sudden turnabout has lifted its ban on women athletes competing in international tournaments little more than a week after the death of Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, an opponent of women’s participation in global sports events.
