Al-Sahlawi & Al-Habshi are OUT!

25 Feb, '07

Thanks to the big campaign and continuous pressure applied by society, Dr. Mohammed Saeed Al-Sahlawi and Hussain Al-Habshi have been released from prison at around 11am this morning. I have also confirmed this fact independently.

I wish to officially congratulate them for their stance and sacrifice, and hope that with this, the Bahraini government too have re-evaluated its own stance regarding freedoms of expressions. I would also like to thank everyone who maintained the political pressure to secure their release.

Congratulations Mohammed and Hussain and it’s good to have you back!

    Mabrouk! Its heartening to read good news for a change (I’ve been reading about arrests in Egypt and Syria all morning and was beginning to feel ill).

    This is good news. Looks like someone in power doesn’t have have their head rammed so far up their ass as to render themselves oblivious as to what’s right and wrong.
