One more time, dissent opens the doors of a prison in Saudi Arabia.

Abdel-Karim al-Khadar is a “professor of Islamic studies in the province of Qassim”, in Saudi Arabia, and is considered “one of the most dynamic critics of the religious extremism”. He also “put online some videos to support the concession of more rights to women” (ANSA).

This “human rights activist” was jailed in “April 2013”. According to a lawyer, Abdel-Karim al-Khadar “has been sentenced to ten years in prison” and to the prohibition “to travel abroad” for another decade (ibidem).
