BackgroundIn 2014 blogger Raif Badawi in Saudi Arabia was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment, 1000 floggings and a heavy fine. He was punished for making critical statements about the government and allegedly insulting Islam. On 9 January 2015 Raif underwent the first fifty floggings. Fortunately, international protest was able to prevent Saudi Arabia from carrying out the remaining 950 floggings. On 16 June 2020 Raif Badawi will be in prison for exactly 8 years. And Amnesty International won't just let that pass. Amnesty International is demanding his release.
