RIYADH (Middle East Eye) – A Saudi physician and activist has gone missing after her arrest in Saudi Arabia two months ago, a rights group said on Tuesday. According to the London-based ALQST group, Lina Alsharif, a 33-year-old Saudi doctor, was arrested in May 2021 and has since been forcibly disappeared. Her arrest appears to be related to her activism on social media, the group said. “Alsharif’s apparent enforced disappearance is of grave concern, particularly given the Saudi authorities’ systematic and widespread use of the practice to silence critical voices,” ALQST Deputy Director Josh Cooper said in a statement.
