Blogger released from jailPosted Jul 1 2008
The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information reported that Saudi blogger Fouad Al-Farhan was released from jail on April 26. Al-Farhan had been in prison in an undisclosed location since Dec. 11, 2007, for reasons still yet to be disclosed by the Saudi government, the network said.
The blogger had posted a note on his Web site claiming he knew the Ministry of the Interior was investigating him because of his blogging about political prisoners in Saudi Arabia. His Web site is currently on the Saudi government’s blacklist that has blocked out over 400,000 web sites with “questionable” content.
