earn their confidence in the resilience and potential of [the Saudi] national economy" Building this investor confidence will require increasing trust in Saudi legal norms including those of constitutions and contracts a crucial assurance for investors against arbitrary treatment Yet the treatment of Raif Badawi is in standing violation of domestic Saudi law and further obligations that Saudi Arabia has assumed under international law The Court that convicted Badawi lacked jurisdiction The witnesses in his case were inadmissible He was denied his right to counsel his lawyer and brother-in-law Waleed Abu Al-Khair was himself imprisoned and he was not informed of the charges against him nor given the necessary time and means to prepare his defense His sentence of lashings was itself illegal as physical torture is prohibited under the Arab Charter on Human Rights ratified by Saudi Arabia in 2009 and the UNs Convention Against Torture which the nation ratified in 1997 The criminalization of Badawi was ultimately the criminalization of the protected rights he sought to exercise and of freedom itself In the face of these standing violations of their own sacred laws and treaty agreements why should investors trust that Saudi Arabia would respect their business commitments Investors could just as easily be treated with the same arbitrariness However it is not too late for Saudi Arabia to make an important statement to the international investor community about rule of law and remedy these standing violations by releasing Badawi and his lawyer To release Badawi would also be a stroke of geostrategic genius Faced with the regional resurgence of violence emanating from the Iranian Regime such as the recent firing of rockets at Riyadh by Iran-backed rebels in Yemen the Saudi Crown Prince has been encouraging the international community to increase economic and political pressure against Iran Similarly the Crown Prince spearheaded a regional move to sever ties with Qatar to protect "national security from the dangers of terrorism and extremism" The collective action aimed to pressure Qatar to end its support for terror groups including elements of ISIS Al-Qaeda the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas But when the Saudi ambassador to Canada tried to host a major press conference on Qatar with his Egyptian and Emirati counterparts in July 2017 his message was lost Journalists asked about Badawi at the Conference and the ambassadors were forced to abandon their advocacy on Qatar to defend the unjust imprisonment Indeed Raif Badawi may be the most celebrated prisoner of conscience in the world today Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize he is a recipient of scores of prestigious human rights awards and honorifics including the Sakharov Prize of the European Parliament the PEN Pinter Prize and the Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Prize Foreign Policy named him as one of 2015s 100 Leading Global Thinkers and he received the Courage Award from a coalition of 20 human rights groups from around the world at the Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy His case and cause have been championed by a broad and inclusive cross-section of leaders from both civil service and civil society Rather than distract from Saudi efforts releasing Badawi would help advance their campaign Indeed Badawi would be an articulate ally and spokesperson for shining a spotlight on Iran and Qatar which are among the most regressive and repressive regimes in the world and as a human rights activist Badawi has been a forceful critic of each Living in liberty Badawi with his established and influential global network can play a transformative role in growing a grassroots campaign and cultivating a collective coalition against the state-sanctioning and support of extremism of the Regimes in Iran and Qatar With such a critical mass of reasons to release Raif any claims to the contrary are certainly surmountable The slippery slope argument that the Saudi state would face an emboldened movement to release other prisoners some of whom may pose a risk to national security is mitigated by the exceptional nature of Badawi an international icon whose views now largely parallel those of the new Saudi leadership His release would have a positive worldwide resonance and attest to the genuine authenticity of reforms to this global audience Ultimately Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman has full authority to grant clemency When he releases the list of pardons in advance of Ramadan next month the Crown Prince should take the opportunity to propel his agenda forward both within Saudi Arabia and across the globe by freeing Raif Badawi and allowing him to join in Quebec Canada his wife Ensaf and children Najwa Terad and
