State security and prisoners of conscience
The tweet of the famous account sparked widespread controversy among Saudi tweeters, and most of them accused him of lying and fabricating, wondering how he obtained such highly confidential sensitive information if it was proven true.
False and incorrect information, so how does the State Security raise a book to the Diwan?
Is this logical and true?
These superstitions are illogical to the mind
And if we ask about logic, how did the information reach you, and if it was (and it arrived as you claim), where is the evidence for your words?
Everyone can write, but the liar is the one who cannot prove

The medical reports concluded that the prisoners suffered from bruises, burns, wounds and severe weight loss, and the newspaper presented details showing the horror of their suffering.

The newspaper stated that the medical reports were accompanied by recommendations calling for the release of detainees who suffer from difficult health conditions.
It also demanded that some of them be transferred from solitary confinement to medical centers, noting that all of the reports confirm what human rights organizations and relatives of detainees have said about solitary confinement, torture by shock and flogging, sexual harassment and malnutrition.
