Court to review Badawi case

The Appeals Court in Jeddah has ordered a trial court to review a case against an alleged abuser of Islam after setting aside the lower court’s verdict to send him to jail.
A court source said: “Even though the trial court dropped the charge of apostasy against Raif Badawi, founder of a website that posts anti-Islam remarks, it recently handed him a prison term of seven years and three months with 600 lashes.”
Badawi was also accused of spreading perverted liberal ideologies, besides publishing articles that mocked Islam and Islamic practices.
