We remain concerned about the cases of Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, Dawood al-Marhoon and Abdallah al-Zaher and continue to follow them closely. The Foreign Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Mr Johnson) raised concerns with the Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Al-Jubeir during their meeting on 7 September. Our expectation remains that they will not be executed. Our Embassy in Riyadh also frequently raise our concerns.
