Further to my post of this morning [https://thoolen.wordpress.com/2015/01/20/video-statement-of-troublemaker-nabeel-rajab-who-is-on-trial-today/], Nabeel Rajab was  unjustly punished and got – simply for posting tweets deemed insulting to the authorities – six months prison. “His conviction is a blow to freedom of expression – it must be quashed. He should be released immediately and unconditionally” said Boumedouha, Deputy Director of Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa Programme.
