Just Another Day in Saudi #138

Worth a look is William Sampson's Confessions of an Innocent Man: Torture and Survival in a Saudi Prison, which documents the grotesque and terrifying nature of the abuse he suffered while in Saudi custody, as well as providing devastating insight into Saudi justice. It also offers a damning indictment of Canadian embassy officials who Sampson describes as ineffectual and condescending, often appearing to be more concerned with placating his captors than ensuring his safety.
