#Statement | We consider the Canadian ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia persona non grata and order him to leave within the next 24 hours.— Foreign Ministry 🇸🇦 (@KSAmofaEN) August 5, 2018
The move comes after
about the arrest of several human rights activists.
Canada is gravely concerned about additional arrests of civil society and women’s rights activists in #SaudiArabia, including Samar Badawi. We urge the Saudi authorities to immediately release them and all other peaceful #humanrights activists.

Among those arrested was Saudi-American women's rights campaigner Samar Badawi.
Ms Badawi had been calling for an end to Saudi Arabia's male guardianship system.
The arrests are at odds with the progressive image the government has projected this year under Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Canada's government has so far made no public comments on Saudi Arabia's diplomatic measures.
