Jailed

Arrest

Saudi Arabia detains Badawi along with her two year old daughter. Saudi authorities deny that Badawi has been arrested, but do say that she is being questioned at a police station. Amnesty International calls for her immediate release. The Raif Badawi Foundation, says that Badawi is charged with running the Twitter account of her ex-husband, another activist serving a 15 year sentence. Human Rights Watch:

The detention of Samar Badawi shows once again Saudi Arabia’s determination to silence those with the courage to speak out for human rights and reform.

HRW: Prosecution ‘fair’

Makes Statement

HRW’s International justice director, Dicker, says Gadaffi’s prosecution was fair:

The authorities will send an important message that there’s a new era in Libya, marked by the rule of law, by treating Saif al-Islam humanely and surrendering him to the ICC. His fair prosecution at the ICC will afford Libyans a chance to see justice served in a trial that the international community stands behind.
