Talib Al-Saedi has documented cases of human rights defenders detained by the Internal Security Service. He was arrested on 3 August at his home.

HRDs remain under constant surveillance by the security services and are subject to summons for questioning by security officials. Independent human rights organizations are not permitted to operate within the country. Besides the Penal Code, the Information Technology law and the Press and Publications law are widely used to silence human rights defenders and independent voices.
