On January 9, 2015, Saudi blogger and activist Raif Badawi was lashed fifty times. 950 more lashes still await him. His trial and sentence for "insulting Islam" have widely been condemned internationally – so far to no avail.
Controversy surrounds Saudi Twitter ads depicting Moroccan women for sale as domestic servants in the oil-rich kingdom. The case has highlighted the abuse of foreign workers in Saudi Arabia, but will either nation react?
The journalist Raif Badawi has been in prison for five years. His crime was writing critically about politics and society in Saudi Arabia. The fight for his release goes on.
The Saudi government will apparently resume the lashing punishment against blogger Raif Badawi. The Raif Badawi Foundation announced it had received this news from a "private source."
