A Saudi journalist is to be lashed in public after he apparently instigated ‘protests’ against a government electricity company which presided over “continuous power cuts” in a town.

Fahd Al Jukhaidib has been sentenced to two months in prison and 50 lashes – 25 of which will be in front of the electricity department.



Hat tip: Sultan Al Q (I think)
