Saudi Blogger is Released

The Arab News reported in a piece called “Blogger Case Exaggerated: Prince Ahmed” that Saudi blogger, Fouad Al-Farhan’s case had been exaggerated by the press.

“The issue (of Al-Farhan) was not that important as it represented the mistake committed by a person on himself. A man who commits a mistake should bear its result,” the Saudi Press Agency quoted the prince as saying.

Yeah – right! He made a mistake, presumably by saying something that the government didn’t agree with – so it is his own fault that he is detained without charge for four months. Let’s hear it for fairness in Saudi Arabia.
