According to Euro news and the Pasbanan news agency reports, the latest reports in the year 2019 show that Saudi Arabia has the highest number of executions in the world. Human rights organizations have reported that in the past year the country has executed four people, including six foreign nationals, for drug trafficking and murder.

The number of executions in Saudi Arabia has increased dramatically since 2015, while in 2014 human rights organizations had 88 executions registered in the country. In 2015, that number rose to 157, and by 2019 it had grown to 184 cases.

Meanwhile, all Saudi rulers and princes, especially the crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, have been repeatedly assassinated by international and human rights organizations following the assassination of Gamal Khashaqchi, one of the fierce critics of the Saudi regime in Turkey. It has been heavily criticized. However, Saudi Arabia’s leadership has so far not commented on the report. But human rights organizations and international lawmakers have expressed concern over the current situation in Saudi Arabia, saying that if the Saudi political misconduct is not prevented, the process could lead to increased human rights abuses. Saudi Arabia is now trying to remove all restrictions on Arab society after the election of its crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.
