Mr. Alfaraj completed his studies until middle school, then work in the private sector. Mr. Alfaraj is married and has two children (Abdullah 7 years, and Mohammed 3 years).

He found himself included on the list of twenty-three on the background of the events that began on 17/02/2011 in the province of Qatif and other cities of Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Interior Ministry issued on 02/01/2012 a list of the 23 required [1] , that surprised the Saudi society, as well as Salman and his family, and found the next day of the announcement of the list his image topping the front pages of the official newspapers , which published the news extensively, including according to a statement the Saudi Interior Ministry variety of charges: (Their actions have been despicable in mob gatherings, blocking traffic within the neighborhoods, and damage public and private property, and possession of firearms illegally, and opened fire on citizens and security men, and concealment of innocent citizens and try to drag them into confrontations absurdity with security forces in implementation of foreign agendas) [2] , which were attributed to him before any investigation, in violation of a numbers of systems local and international.

What Mr. Alfaraj has done move to claim his rights guaranteed in the international law, where the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in article 20: (Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association), and as provided for in paragraph 6 of Article 24 of the Arab charter on Human Rights: (freedom of assembly and freedom of peaceful assembly), and these texts to give legitimacy to what Mr. Alfaraj has done mobility. The Saudi Arabia’s accession to the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties in 14/04/2003 in Article 11 of which states: (The consent of a State to be bound by a treaty may be expressed by signature, exchange of instruments constituting a treaty, ratification, acceptance, approval or accession, or by any other means if so agreed). Means entered into the above paragraph in the Arab Charter on human rights contained in the Universal Declaration of human rights.

Despite this, Mr. Alfaraj found himself hunted for arrest, without convinced of a legal interpretation of the reason to include him in it, he comments on it saying: (There is no reason to put ours name in the list, but because of the confusion and involvement with the blood of the innocent has developed a list to paste all of their actions only security required). Mr. Alfaraj adds: (the list was wrongfully and surprise to us with unexpected, what have we done to place our names on the list).

The members on the twenty-three list are suffering a loss of sense of security because of ongoing prosecutions; on 27/02/2012 they raided the homes of two members of the list, Fadel Hassan Safwani and Morsi Ali Al Rebh [3] , which later ended dead by Saudi authorities [4] .

On 29/07/2013 they raided the home of the activist Abbas Ali Almuzare [5] a member of the twenty-three list, also in the same Raid, they arrest six people, four of his brothers and two others, and women were dragged to Awamia police station which they were released at the same time. After this, on 05/09/2013 they raid the home of Muhammad Isa Al-labbad [6] , which he is also a member of the list, underscoring the threat to Mr. Salman Alfaraj.

In a related development in targeting Mr. Alfaraj, the Saudi authorities have embarked on 25/09/2013 disturbing a violation to his father rights, where his father was called up and exert pressure and threats against him so he can hand over his son, according to a news site (Awwamiyya on the network) [7] .

I am the citizen/Salman Ali Salman Alfaraj

I have been accused wrongfully by the Saudi Interior Ministry and that the accusation is false and maligned.

I denied all the charges that the Saudi Ministry of Interior has been framed me with altogether. Yes I have been participated in a peaceful protest for a justice and decent living and a rejection of injustice and discrimination fact on me and the people of my town.

I am 33-years-old, a Saudi citizen. I support my wife and my two children; I do not have a specific financial source of income invoke it on my pension and I see my country wealth enjoyed by those who do not deserve it.

Like many others in this beloved country where I spend most of my life in lease tenant, moving from one house to another and the reason because I do not own house fixture in the country of vast desert area. If found, it does not give us citizens!

These charges are only to stop us from the demands of true and fair. Therefore, I accuse the Ministry of the Interior is responsible for everything that happening to me from the consequences and damages of these trumped-up charges to me which are not based on real evidence.

I appeal to all local and international organizations of human rights and civil society, to stand and reach out to support us. From the wrong that is happing to us.

I just want to remind in case I got arrested and they publish any non-recognition of this for me, but it is a forced extract under physical and psychological pressure from the Interior Ministry. However I said that and God is my witness)[10].
