A Sunni Islamist activist to three months in jail for writing remarks on his Twitter account deemed derogatory to Shiite (shi3i)Muslims, a legal source said. The sentence is not final as it can still be challenged in the appeals and supreme courts, but he has to remain in jail until his appeals are examined.
The same Kuwaiti court is due to issue a verdict on Tuesday against a Kuwaiti Shiite (shi3i) blogger for allegedly using his Twitter account to harshly insult the rulers of Kuwait’s Gulf partners Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Several Kuwaiti MPs have strongly criticised what they described as a government crackdown on bloggers and users of social networks Facebook and Twitter.
