Qatari poet Mohammed al-Ajami, detained since November 2011, has had his sentence of life imprisonment reduced to 15 years’ imprisonment, for “offences” that relate to his poems. He appears to be a prisoner of conscience, jailed solely for the peaceful exercise of his right to freedom of expression.
