by:Murat Suner

Raif Badawi was sentenced to 10 years in jail and 1,000 lashes after starting a website for social and political debate.

On Friday 9 January, Raif Badawi received 50 lashes, while the rest of the full sentence of 1,000 lashes will be carried out, apparently every week on Fridays, for a period of 19 weeks. Please take action now through supporting Amnesty International’s petition.
