Saudi Star Vigorously Denies Human Rights Watch Claims

Following claims made recently by Human Rights Watch, Saudi Star wishes to make it clear that no human rights abuses took place to its knowledge on its land and that it would not countenance such abuses if they had occurred. It further denies any administrative connection between its investments and regional security measures which are undertaken wholly by and on the authority of the Ethiopian Government. It would like to remind interested parties that any government security activity must be seen in the context of a murderous attack by persons unknown on Saudi Star personnel on April 28th, 2012.
