Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Saudi ArabiaMiddle East – North Africa Religious intolerance April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF has been campaigning for many months for the release of Badawi, who has been sentenced to ten years in prison and 1,000 lashes.The possibility of a pardon was mentioned at the end of last week by the Swiss foreign ministry’s secretary of state after an official visit to Saudi Arabia. He said Badawi’s sentence had been suspended while a proposed pardon was being considered. RSF hopes that the pardon materializes and that its many appeals to the Saudi king will finally lead to Badawi’s release.“The release of the winner of the 2014 RSF Press Freedom Prize and the 2015 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought would send a strong message to the international community,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk.“We urge the Saudi authorities to approve Raif Badawi’s pardon and we hope that we will soon be able to see this young blogger released and reunited with his family. We meanwhile remain vigilant and call for the international pressure to be maintained.”As part of its campaign, RSF launched a petition for Badawi’s release in December 2014 that has gathered more than 50,000 signatures.Badawi was arrested in June 2012 and was sentenced in May 2014 under Saudi Arabia’s cyber-crime law to 10 years in prison, 1,000 lashes and a heavy fine for “insulting Islam” on the discussion website he created.His case is emblematic of the crackdown on dissidents in Saudi Arabia.Nine journalists and citizen-journalists are currently detained in Saudi Arabia, which is ranked 164th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster is tipping David Moyes to make a success of replacing Sir Alex Ferguson. Press Association Foster spent five years on the Old Trafford payroll before leaving for Birmingham in 2010. And although that period included two seasons out on loan and another sidelined by injury, he still got a pretty good insight into what makes the mighty Old Trafford machine tick. Foster accepts the heat is on Moyes following Ferguson’s exit. But he is confident United have the right man for the job, saying: “David Moyes has huge shoes to fill but I don’t think anyone could have walked into that job and felt no pressure at all.” He added: “It is the biggest job in world football. United have made a good decision. Moyes has got that steel about him. From what I hear he is a hard character. He has high standards all the time. You see what he has done at Everton on a limited budget. He has eked out the last little bit of quality from every one of his players.” It might not be easy though. Quite apart from having to stamp his authority on a dressing room used to winning the trophies he has never collected, Moyes also has to brace himself for a summer spending spree from fellow Champions League contenders Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal. Europe is also a priority after two poor seasons by the Red Devils high standards. Yet despite these obvious challenges, Foster expects his old club to keep on winning. “United will always carry on the same,” he said. “They are very good at signing players who believe in everything they stand for. It is football, football, football. It is winning at all costs. It is the way they are. “I am sure they will keep the old heads around, even when they retire. “Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs will always have some input and some sort of say just to drive home the message to the new lads. It is bred within them to be winners and that will always be the case.”
