Saudi authorities deport another 100 Pakistanis


LAHORE: After being incarcerated for months, at least 100 Pakistanis were deported by Saudi authorities on Wednesday.

The deportees arrived in Lahore via Saudi Airlines flight SV-734. Upon arrival, they were interrogated by immigration authorities and were later cleared.

In March, thousands of Pakistanis were imprisoned in Saudi Arabia and dozens were sentenced to death. Sixty-six Pakistanis were beheaded in the country between 2014 and 2017 alone, the report entitled “Caught in a Web” said.

According to a Saudi Gazette report, in February 2017, at least 39,000 Pakistanis were deported from the kingdom within a span of four months.
