Wrongful Imprisonment


A blogger Bashar Al-Sayegh was taken from Al-Jareeda news paper by Kuwait Secret Police (Amin Al Dawlah) for a comment against the Emir of Kuwait in his blog, which he deleted after reading the comment, and Jassim Al-Qames was detained for taking photographs of the illegal detainment of Bashar at the Newspaper head quarters.

Bashar was thruoughly beaten and he was made to sign a document under duress. And Jasim is still imprisoned without any knowledge of his whereabouts or updates.

This is completely against every right that we have in Kuwait. I hope they free Jasim and prosecute these people in the Secret Police for their actions. I wish we could find out their names.
