||<p><strong>We are closely monitoring this case. The Embassy team in Riyadh have raised
the issue of the execution of minors in Saudi Arabia four times in the last month.
We will raise our concerns regarding Mr Qureiris’s case with the Saudi authorities.
The Embassy team have applied for permission to attend any further trial sessions.</strong></p><p>It
is a longstanding practice of the British Government to oppose the death penalty,
in all circumstances, as a matter of principle, in every country, including Saudi
Arabia. This is in line with the minimum standards set out in the EU Guidelines on
the Death Penalty of 2008 and the provisions of the International Covenant on Civil
and Political Rights, Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the Arab Charter
on Human Rights.</p>
