Human Rights Watch Samar Badawi Saudi Arabia


13 Jan, 2016

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.
