Warden of Dhahban Prison in Jeddah
Brigadier-General Adel al-Subhi (العميد عادل الصبحي), Warden of Dhahban Prison in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Brig. Gen. Adel al-Subhi is the warden of the Dhahban Prison and responsible for the treatment of those confined there. DAWN has documented mistreatment of prisoners under his watch. In 2017 and 2018, while in Dahban, Salman Alodah was deprived of sleep, deprived of his medication and put into solitary confinement without justification. Loujain Alhathloul was held there in solitary confinement in May 2018 and from July 2018 to September 2018, without justification. Waleed Abulkhair was confined there, and in November 2019, guards mistreated him, including by leaving him outside his cell, in the hot sun, for long periods of time, and transferring him to a heightened security division without providing any justification.
DAWN requested a response from Brig. Gen. al-Subhi by writing to the Saudi authorities, but no response was received by the time of publication.
