The Presidency of State Security runs nearly twenty prisons and detention centers across Saudi Arabia, in addition to major prisons with high-security measures such as Al-Ha’ir Prison, Dammam Investigation Prison, Dhahban Prison, and Al-Tarfiya Prison. Monitoring by the European-Saudi Organization confirmed that detainees were subjected to various types of ill-treatment and torture in prisons. Despite the death sentence issued against him by the Specialized Criminal Court, violations continued against the detainee Abbas Al-Hassan, who was placed in a solitary cell and prevented from obtaining his medicine. Al-Hassan was executed in April 2019.
