The Saudi authorities continue to detain the thinker Nasser Al-Omar since August 2018, despite his advanced age and his struggle with several chronic illnesses. He was arrested due to tweets in which he expressed his opinions. The Saudi judiciary has sentenced him to 10 years in prison.
It’s worth mentioning that Al-Omar is a thinker and researcher with numerous publications, research papers, and articles. He oversees several websites and enjoys a broad popular base. However, during his imprisonment, he has faced numerous violations, including being prevented from communicating with his family or appointing a lawyer. He has been held in solitary confinement, leading to a deterioration of his health and the onset of chronic illnesses.
