Saudi Arabia’s jailing of journalist violation of intl. law: Amnesty


Amnesty International has criticized Saudi Arabia’s decision to jail a journalist to five years as a clear “violation of international law.”

Ala’a Brinji was sentenced to five years in jail earlier this week over charges that he has insulted the country’s rulers and incited public opinion on Twitter.

Amnesty said on Sunday that the ruling showed intolerance for the freedom of expression in Saudi Arabia.
