Tweeting in Kuwait is becoming quite the hazard. We reported earlier that Nasser Abul was arrested for criticizing the Bahraini and Saudi Arabian royal families.
Abul is now joined by yet another Kuwaiti citizen, both of whom will be put on trial. Lawrence al-Rashidi was also recently arrested, but for comments made about Kuwait’s own ruling family.
Amnesty International has called for the release of Abul in a statement which includes information on an additional lawsuit he faces. The Bahraini ruling family is said to be suing Abul for slander and defamatory remarks.
