      This not correct. It seems that someone is paid or have an agenda to bring social issues as political scandal in international media. What do think about someone who is paid to speak against his country and then get caught? Off course captured.

      Every president comes and try to bully or pressurise different countries around the world by using different prays or other side of dual policy coin it says ethnic laws, traditions shall be preserved.i did not what internal deals they do by this?

      Biden needs to flex the power of SANCTIONS against MBS and other Saudi’s and also American companies that do business with them!

      The reports issued by them do not enrich or satiate Because all their reports so far Iran, which is the primary sponsor of terrorism, has not been condemned In the world And do not forget that they destroyed two countries Iraq and Afghanistan The reason is a false report In the end, whoever issues reports is his goal Destruction of peoples and not Uncover false facts

      These human rights abuses against women need to be addressed by our country by boycotting everything we can. Saudi Arabia isn't a poor country. It doesn't need anything from us that it cant get somewhere else. America needs to walk the walk if we talk the talk to other countries.

    28. Hassan Badrek

      Most Saudi don’t want reforming

    29. Gina ChildFree

      That sister needs to stop talking to the media and sit down somewhere. If Lujane wants to be a martyr and give up her freedom, then do it. If she wants freedom she needs to sit down and leave MBS alone

    30. Tiger Z

      This step by releasing Hathlool will help the American people raise their economy It will help the American people get back to their jobs It will also reduce corona cases by 66% Also, drug prices for the American people will decrease Biden is a wise president who loves his American people

      Hathloul Al Loujain's 11 colleagues were also jailed. They still haven't been released.

    35. Basam Ahmad

      This woman is lier and the reporter is Iranian savak. Check her background!

      1. RAM FINACH

        MBS is a criminal and needs to be in jail

    36. Sultan Alghamdi

      As a saudi living in saudi arabia, I can confirm that all of the allegations that have been made by this woman are simply not true. We support our leadership and women in my country are living perfectly fine. In saudi, there is very low crime, free medical care, free education, scholarships, huge foreign investments, and more! All of this count as human rights... Long Live Saudi!

      1. Nimrah Un Nisa

        As a patriotic person, you are bias. You only care about your country's image not women suffering in prisons for being activists. Shame on you. Truth can never be hidden.

      2. Sultan Alghamdi

        @RAM FINACH I guess you have your mind made up by the media and you are incapable of thinking freely. You need to stop watching CNN videos and get a ticket and visit Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries and see by yourself how cool life is here. Otherwise, you are being delusional

      3. RAM FINACH

        Thank you Sultan but we don’t believe you because you cannot say otherwise or you will be jailed and tortured. Bin Salman is a criminal and needs to be convicted

      All Saudis love MBS. Why don't you come here and ask actul people instead of doing these fake interviews.

      1. RAM FINACH

        Stop being scared. MBS is a criminal and a milking cow

    39. Rayed Jualidan

      Of course they can claim what ever they want without evidence and CNN the propaganda machine will be used as a cudgel to attack whatever countrys against their agenda. China is committed an actual genocide and no reports on it.

      I love Lojian what happened to here was horrible and stupid, but what Lina said here about women’s rights after MBS taking control it’s completely not true , women in Saudi Arabia granted without any noticeable demands or movements above what any one expected it’s hugest improvement from thousands years

      1. RAM FINACH

        Stop being scared, this is not enough. MBS is a criminal and needs to be convicted

    48. naseem hany

      Examples of MBS reforms: ordering the execution of hundreds of innocent people secretly without trials some of the victims were children's 1- at least 158 executions in 2015 2- at least 154 executions in 2016 3- at least 146 executions in 2017 4- at least 149 executions in 2018 5- at least 184 executed in 2019

      Biden works for human rights 😂😂 America does not know the meaning of human rights The Americans are pressuring Prince Muhammad bin Salman not for the sake of Yemen, Khashoggi, or Loujain al-Hathloul, but rather for fear of him because he wants to place Saudi Arabia in the ranks of developed countries.

      MBS😍😍 Loujain Hathloul was supported by the Democratic Party during the Obama era against Saudi Arabia, After its release the dog Biden left everything and spoke about Loujain Hathloul, Saudi Arabia set conditions for Loujain Hathloul. If she talks about the state with inappropriate words, she will return to prison again.

      1. Faisal

        @RAM FINACH In dreams

      that all happened to her because she said driveing isnt in the Quran......

    57. Miss Ema

      Saudi Arabia promised it will grant Lojain a fair trial and her release is proof of that. The accusations are baseless, and they are formed to distort the image of Saudi laws and .

    58. Miss Ema

      It is important to stress the fact she wasn’t imprisoned because of her advocacy women’s rights. The accusations relate to Saudi Arabia’s national security

    59. Miss Ema

      If there is not an official Saudi source that commented on her release and the conditions state not to share anything, then how does her sister have all this information?

    60. Melody Charles

      I'd suggest that this family lie low for a little while. Loujain is still not really free.

    61. UWSGRRL

      What a heartbreaking story. The Saudi government is barbaric towards women. To torture an activist is cruel. I am so grateful I was born in the USA & have freedom of speech.

      1. ادم محمد

        @UWSGRRL Conservative is an understatement, radical or fundamentalist would be better terms so that’s why I do believe the guest is being very disingenuous when she’s trying to show that Saudis have a Norwegian mentality but poor us we are ruled by a draconian theocratic system. And you know the ironic part is that the same people that were drinking, do have a backward mentality and they do believe they are sinners and after a while they would joint Islamist terrorist groups, what my country needs right now is another interpretation of Islam other than Wahhabism and whether the west like him or not the only Saudi royal who is trying to do that is MBS.

      2. UWSGRRL

        Yes I am aware of the Saudi tribes are very conservative. However, Saudi Arabia needs to join the 21st century. Many in the royal family are hypocrites. I lived in London in 1979, & in all the nightclubs, the Saudi men & women had bottles of scotch at their table. In the casino's gambling tables were mostly Saudi women & men.

      3. ادم محمد

        Actually the situation was much worse before MBS; and we never saw western nations pressure Saudi Arabia so as a Saudi I don't believe that countries are now pressuring us because they suddenly decided to care about women it's politics plain and simple and by the way the Saudi population is actually much more conservative much more than the government so that's why I disagree when the guest spoke as if the Saudi people are against the new laws most are actually against the new reform laws it's quite surprising I know but it's the truth.

        Well we love that shitty country. No one cares what you think though, you can just spare us the visit. All the arabs in the gulf and in Egypt, Sudan, Iraq and Jorden love Saudi dearly. That's because we actually know how they rule and how their people are.

        Emphasis on your mind

    65. Fact Check

      MBS get rid off religious policemen, get rid off school texts that incite hate against Christian and Jew. Left restriction on what woman must wear. Left ban on woman to drive. Women don't need any approval from guardian for education, work and travel. And much more than that How he is not reformer? The sad thing CNN presents anything without any proof.

      1. RAM FINACH

        He is a criminal. He needs to be in jail. Fact check yourself

    66. Fact Check

      "Most of Saudis don't think MBS is reformer"? Based on what statistic or survey? Don't speak on behalf of us. It's a shame of CNN to bring a liar like you. Women doesn't need any approval from a guardian. Not for a job or education or travel. Also allow them to drive.

      1. Chris Parker

        @Fact Check Well lookee here. It turns out that the private jets used to fly Kashoggi's murderers into the country were owned by a company that MBS ordered be taken in to government ownership. But sure, MBS still had nothing to do with this. 🙄

      2. Fact Check

        @Chris Parker Again you have no solid proof that MBS ordered. I could say you're American and you could reply you're not. Still the breaking point comes with proof The media politicizing Jamal for their agenda to attack Trump. Not because they care about him. How many names were killed by Iran? The nuked of Lebanon Port that killed 200 people, the massacred that happened in Syria and drive people out of home. 800 Iraqis were killed by Iran Malitias last week. Many journalists were killed by Iran(plus all the crimes inside the country). All these victims have names and some killed with family yet we don't see equal treatment. So does one crime equal to hundred thousands? You're saying stealing is equal to murder.

      3. Fact Check

        @Chris Parker You forget to respond to the main point "Second, you only know this Jamal what the media feeds you. He was a supporter of Alqadea and Alnusra. He even talked that Saudi should finance the Islamists(Terrorists)."

      4. Chris Parker

        @Mt Al "they didn't justify a muder by saying there were others". Yes they did, it was classic 'whataboutism'. "other goverments commited genocides till this very day on Arab and Muslim countries ". And you've just done exactly the same thing. "Not jump to conclusions without sold proof because you just feel a person order it.". You have no evidence that I did that so you are, in fact, jumping to a conclusion without solid proof. "America can't talk about human rights when it did all this crap in the middle-east.". I agree. Please show me where I have said otherwise. "On top of messing up our countries, you got a nerve accusing our goverments.". How have I done anything to mess up anyone's country? Please provide evidence and citations. "The media .....". I am well aware of what the media does and doesn't do just as I am aware of what governments, leaders and politicians do. It is a unanimous opinion outside countries not tied to Saudi that Kashoggi could not have been killed without the say so of MBS. The people who actually did the killing were sacrified to appease political outrage and will never serve their 20 year sentences. Instead they will be quietly released and compensated for keeping their mouths shut. Wasta rules.

      5. Chris Parker

        @Mt Al "They talk about human rights but the last person that can do that is the US, after spreading war like that in the middle-east". I agree, no argument here. Where have I said otherwise? "americas out take on someone can make the whole world attack a country, it's your responsibility to do better" I'm not American, so where do you want to go with this now?

    67. Fact Check

      You're liar just like your sis. Both of you are the most hated in Saudi Arabia..

      Most Saudis and most people around world knows about it but unfortunately our do call mainstream media do know about it now cnn is also call him reformist sad

    69. Jack O'lantern

      MBS isn't the greatest reformer but just like his counterpart in Iran Rouhani...he's kind of best one you can get currently OR do you want to lose your current rights and go back to ultra-conservative isolationist policies?

      1. Jack O'lantern

        @Chris Parker okay I hope you have/had a safe flight. (sorry for the late reply)

      2. Chris Parker

        @Jack O'lantern I’d like e to properly read and digest your comment but you’ve caught me on the hop, about to sleep for an early flight. I’ll try to remember to revisit this when I’ve got the luxury of time to respond properly. If I don’t it’s not because I disbelieve you, quite the contrary.

      3. Jack O'lantern

        @Chris Parker if there was a third way between the crazy antics of a radical progressive and the Ultra-Conservatives then I'll gladly take it but I'm afraid that third way is getting riskier with every year (due to Geopolitical reasons). Note: Saudi Arabia used to be weak when it came to Geopolitics (so it relied on US and UK for Political, Economical and Military power) Saudi Arabia (which was Mainly Conservative) in 2010 found itself in a very hard place. The U.S was slowly losing influence in the middle east. While both Iran and Turkey started to become more and more influential in the region not to mention they also had strong economies, militaries and technological advancements that of which gave them alot of political power and a position in the Geopolitical map of the middle east ....meanwhile Saudi Military was (and still is) a paper tiger at best, the economy was hardly diverse (it was mostly oil-based), there were hardly any technological advances *made* (yes *made* not *bought*) by Saudi... if it wasn't for the need of oil and U.S/UK backing Saudi Arabia then i dare say that Saudi Arabia wouldn't even be on the Geopolitical map today. (Or back in 90s) So it needed to act *fast* (they can't select a normal progressive because he will act slow and they can't select a radical conservative because he will drive the country to the ground) and choose either a radical progressive (to make up for the lost years) and achieve self-reliance before it's too late OR a conservative who will undoubtedly do what past Saudi leaders always did and rely on US/UK support OR a moderate (third way) who *as I said earlier* would come with alot of risks because there's hardly any time for him to work with.

      4. Chris Parker

        @Jack O'lantern You profferred a choice between MBS and ultra-conservatism, I asked why they should be the only options.

      This is one of the tactics if not the most frequent tactic that is being used by the Human Rights Watch to accuse governments of sexually abusing their prisoners. Saudi Arabia is not Venezuela or Bolivia. The United States murdered Jeffrey Epstein in prison and the media along with the Human Rights Watch didn’t open their mouths. Take your “human rights” somewhere else. We know your dirty game and now we have mastered it.

      When I was there, the mutawi (religious police) were everywhere. Since all the employed expats (at the time) were men, their family were treated like dogs. Not from the standpoint of being dismissive or abusive, but from the responsibility the man had for his family. So if anyone had a run-in with police, no matter how trivial, the husband would be called to 'take care of the problem'.

      1. ادم محمد

        @Chris Parker This is no longer the case but I don’t see western media commending us on that, they would rather criticize us because we are not like Norway as if progress can happen in a day; I wish that my country is like Norway when it comes to human rights but I’m a pragmatist Sir I need to compare the previous monarchs to MBS and if I do that I will see that there was plenty of progress that was achieved.

      Your sister wasn’t the only women’s rights activist in KSA, there were thousands openly calling for the lift of the ban years ago and haven’t been jailed. The difference here is that most Saudis know you and your sister are puppets for the Left in the West who have committed treason by using women’s rights as an excuse to work with foreign agents and enemies of the state and you continue to do so therefore she got what she deserved and your day will come.
