Pro-reform Saudi scribe arrested
Saudi security services have arrested a journalist who criticised the arrest a day earlier of a group of Saudi reformers, three of whom have since been released.
Speaking to Aljazeera on Tuesday, Abd al-Rahman al-Lahim, who is based in Saudi, had said the arrest of the reformers was "contrary to the law".
He advocated "freedom of expression, a priority for economic reform" envisaged by the authorities.
Sources close to the reformers on Wednesday said Saudi security forces had arrested some 10 reformers since Tuesday, including academics who were among 116 signatories to a petition to the government in December calling for transforming the kingdom into a constitutional monarchy.
The only people allowed to talk about "Reform" are the government. Private citizens who do this, risk a stay in some filthy prison with psychotic guards.
So they'll avoid reform as long as they can get away with it. Otherwise they risk losing their privileges, their palaces, their immunity from prosecution.
