Abdullah Al-Zaher's dad has now begged the world for help and claimed his son was tortured into a confession
A heartbroken dad has begged the world for help as Saudi Arabia prepare to behead and then crucify his teenage son.
Abdullah Al-Zaher was aged just 15 when he was arrested in the kingdom after attending a protest rally against the government.
Now just 19, he faces being executed and crucified along with 51 other people.
Speaking to the Guardian, his desperate dad Hassan Al-Zaher said: “Please help me save my son from the imminent threat of death. He doesn't deserve to die just because he participated in a protest rally.”
They say this resulted in them forcing a confession from him and prevented him from being able to speak to a lawyer.
The teenager was sentenced to death in October last year.
The charity says the country is one of the most prolific users of the death penalty.
