Fouad al-Farhan suggests making Thursday August 9, 2007 a day to support Abdul-Rahman Seddiq, one of the ten men who were unfairly arrested in February based on allegations linking them to terrorism. Seddiq, 67, has worked in different parts in the government and later retired and devoted most of his time to work as a consultant for several organizations and charities.
On Thursday, Fouad will visit Seddiq’s house in Jeddah along with his wife and kids to show their support to the man’s family, and invites all those who know Seddiq and believe that he is innocent to do the same.
If you were unable to make it, please consider supporting Abdul-Rahman Seddiq in any way that you see helpful. Here is some suggestions:
- Talk to your family and friends about Seddiq. Encourage them to read more about the case and ask them to support his cause.
- Write a letter of support and send it to Fouad (fouad at smartinfo.com.sa) and he will deliver it to the family.
- Use one of the banners posted here on your blog or website. You can also use them for your signature in forums.
- Contact the family directly using one of these numbers: Um Raed (his wife) 0504308644; Abdul-Qader (his brother) 0506613443; Anas (his son) 0555660954.
Fouad has written a long post in Arabic about Abdul-Rahman Seddiq. It would be great if someone could translate it or at least parts of it to post it here. I wish I had time to do that but I’m still busy and will be traveling on Thursday, so if someone would be kind enough to translate it I would be glad to publish it.
