Free Raif Badawi

Raif Badawi

As a blogger who does not feel constrained by government when expressing my thoughts, the case of Raif Badawi is shocking in the extreme.

For daring to suggest that his home country should allow greater freedom of expression, he has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment and weekly lashings. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that the country handing out this barbaric sentence is Saudi Arabia.

Amnesty International is trying to get Mr Badawi released. I would be grateful if you would show your support for freedom of expression by adding your name to the petition for his release.
