Nancy PelosiHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she is “deeply concerned” over allegations that an aid worker currently held in Saudi Arabia was being tortured, ahead of an appeal hearing in his criminal case set for Monday.

“Deeply concerned with allegations of torture in detention of aid worker Abdulrahman al-Sadhan," Pelosi said in a statement on Twitter. "His sentencing continues Saudi Arabia’s assault on freedom of expression. Congress will monitor Abdulrahman’s appeal hearing tomorrow, as well as all human rights abuses by the regime.”

In 2018, al-Sadhan was arrested at his office at the Saudi Red Crescent Authority and disappeared, according to MENA Rights Group.

The human rights group said his family learned that in his first year of detention, he was subjected to abuses including verbal humiliation and electric shocks. Since then, Pelosi, his family member and others have raised concerns about his well-being.
