Jailed For Insulting Palestinian President
Palestine don’t know what free speech means – Anas Said was sentenced to one-year prison for insulting palestinian president, Mahmud Abbas:
A Palestinian court on Thursday sentenced a West Bank man to a year in prison for “insulting” president Mahmud Abbas in a remark he posted on Facebook.
A court in the northern West Bank city of Nablus sent Anas Said Awad, 26, from the nearby village of Awarta, to jail over a caption he posted next to a picture of Abbas kicking a football saying “a new striker for Real Madrid,” his father told AFP.
A truly milestone in the search of getting their own state, don’t you think?
