Follow Ali’s story in the video undermentioned (Source: Frontline): Ali Nimr was just 17 when the Arab Spring reached Saudi Arabia in 2011, a country tightly controlled by its royal family. With all the enthusiasm of youth, Ali joined people in the streets calling for reform, his parents said.
His uncle, the Shiite cleric Sheikh Nimr Al Nimr, was considered the spiritual leader of the movement. To Saudi officials, he was a revolutionary with ties to their archrival, Iran.
In 2012, Nimr was accused of inciting the uprising, arrested and imprisoned. Ali was detained as well, and charged with treason and sedition — words the boy told his father in a call from prison that he didn’t even understand.
In January 2016, Sheikh Nimr was executed along with 46 other Saudi prisoners. Now 21, Ali is still imprisoned, his fate uncertain. “I can feel the sword against his neck,” his father said.
