Matrook Al-Faleh Arrested

Matrook Al-Faleh, political science professor at KSU, has been arrested on Monday. Al-Faleh went to work yesterday morning but did not return home. His family have found his car in the university parking lot but could not locate him or contact him on his mobile phone. Activist Fowzan Al-Harbi confirmed the arrest but said it is still unknown why Al-Faleh was arrested. It is expected, though, that the arrest is related to his latest statement regarding the situation in Buraida General Prison where fellow activists Abdullah Al-Hamed and his brother Eisa are jailed. Al-Faleh has released a long statement on Saturday saying the situation in prison show extreme violations of human right. The statement also expressed concern about the deteriorating health of Al-Hamed brothers who have started a hunger strike last week. The statement asked King Abdullah to interfere to stop the violations, and appealed to human rights organizations to support the jailed activists.

  1. I just wonder Ahmed, Is there any coming day, where blocking the freedom and humiliating the humanity will stop?

  2. If I wasn’t married and had children, I would be outside with a sign ! ! ! Where have all the real mean gone? Just a few weaklings who are probably having manicures….

  3. Hope, isn’t it clear? All the real men are put into prison. As soon as some real cool dude becomes known as such, they disappear!
    I’m worried about Achmed.

  4. Speaking out against injustice sometimes has negative consequences – but if we all kept quiet, we would only blame ourselves for social injustice

  5. Readers looking for first-hand accounts of the human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia should get a copy of “Karin in Saudi Arabia” by Sami Alrabaa. One muttawa is quoted saying to a German lady, “You Christians will burn in hell. But before you go there, here in the sacred land of Saudi Arabia you will live through a small piece of hell, just to get you ready for what you’ll experience after you die.” Then he punched her in the face until she bled, dragged her into a small room, and raped her while his colleagues laughed hysterically.
