Following update no.4 of 27th February on Hiba Al-Shamaree, aka Dr.Hanan Al-Mashdani, I mentioned that she was to be presented to the Iraqi courts on terrorism charges because of an anti-dual US/Iran occupation blog !
I just learned now that Hiba Al-Shamaree, this 33 year old Doctor has been sentenced to 3 years of imprisonment by the “democratic” government of Nouri Al-Maliki , because of a blog ! And God knows what they did to her to extract “information” because of a blog !
On the 7th year “anniversary”, this is one extra reason for you to “celebrate” the “new budding flower of Democracy” in the Middle East – Iraq.
This is a shame. I guess there is no real justice in Iraq. Nothing has changed.
Bad enough journalist were killed, but now they imprison blogger’s.
There is still no freedom in Iraq.
Again this is the Blog they made so much of. I have read it myself and found little to nothing to deserve a three year prison sentence.
For a translator get Google toolbar or Foxlingo toolbar both have very good language translators. For Safari users http://translate.google.com/#
It is a very small blog with few entries.
