Al-Salloum as Warden of Haer Prison (General Intelligence Directorate Prison in al-Haer) until September 2019 bears overall responsibility for the treatment of prisoners in Haer Prison during his tenure.
As warden, he oversaw Salman Alodah's mistreatment beginning in 2018 and Loujain Alhathloul being held in solitary confinement with no justification. Both took place during al-Salloum's management of the prison.
"The mistreatment and medical negligence in al-Haer and some other Saudi prisons are not individual cases or exceptions; they are systematic," Alaoudh said. "Prison officials like al-Salloum bear responsibility for these abuses."

About DAWN's culprit gallery:
Tyrants need enablers who will implement their oppressive practices, even if it means abusing their fellow citizens. These agents often mask their complicity in the guise of professionals exercising their duties in offices, courtrooms, police stations, and interrogation rooms.
DAWN seeks to disclose the identity of the state agents who enable repression and, to make them recognizable at home and abroad. These individuals, whom DAWN calls "culprits," bear administrative, civil, moral, legal, and/or political responsibility for human rights and international humanitarian law violations.
