Saudi blogger released

Associated Press reports that the Saudi blogger jailed without charges has finally been released:

Fouad al-Farhan was jailed for (ironically) writing about political prisoners.

It would be nice to say NZ had a hand in getting him released, but we bravely “monitored the situation” without even once saying to the Saud Government that sending people to jail merely for criticising the Government is a bad thing.
