British police have engaged in a programme with Saudi officers to teach them torture techniques.
British MPs have called for the programme to be halted.
Riyadh is often accused for its poor human rights record.
IB Times quoted several British MP’s slamming Saudi Arabia.
Labour MP Andy Slaughter, the shadow minister for human rights, told the BBC: “This is a regime which executed 47 people in one day this year, that still has minors on death row.”
Meanwhile, shadow home secretary Andy Burnham told The Times: “After these revelations, we cannot have any involvement in this project with a clear conscience. The home secretary should suspend this arrangement immediately and prevent British police officers playing any part.”
In a statement, the Foreign Office said: “Only by working with Saudi Arabia are we able to bring about the changes we would like to see in the country.”
