 Saudi Arabian blogger Raif Badawi

Raif Badawi (born 13 January 1984, name also transcribed as Raef Badawi) is a Saudi Arabian writer and activist and the creator of the website Free Saudi Liberals.


He was arrested in 2012 on a charge of insulting Islam through electronic channels and brought to court on several charges including apostasy. He was convicted of several charges and sentenced to seven years in prison and 600 lashes in 2013, then resentenced to 1,000 lashes and ten years in prison plus a fine in 2014. The lashes were to be carried out over 20 weeks. The first 50 were administered on January 9, 2015. The second set has been postponed more than twelve times. The reason for the most recent postponement is unknown, but in previous weeks the lashes have been delayed due to Badawi's poor health. Badawi is known to have hypertension and his health has worsened since the flogging began. His wife, Ensaf Haidar, has asserted that Raif will not be able to survive it.


In June 2015, Saudi Arabia's Supreme Court upheld the sentence of 1,000 lashes and ten years in prison.
