A trial in Saudi Arabia of 32 men, almost all Shiites, accused of spying for Iran makes a mockery of justice in the Sunni kingdom, Rights Watch charged Tuesday.The accused are an Iranian, an Afghan and 30 Saudis, all but one of them from the country's Shiite minority, the New York-based watchdog said.HRW cited Taha al-Haji, a Saudi lawyer who represented a group of the defendants until March, as saying the men were suddenly brought to trial in February.HRW described the spy trial as "a mockery of justice" that has violated the basic due process rights of the accused, all of whom except one have been detained since 2013 .
