Libya: Jail sentence of Libyan editor a blow to free expression
Amnesty International deplores the decision of the Court of Appeals in Tripoli to sentence the Libyan journalist Amara Hassan Mohamed al-Khattabi to five years in prison in relation to the publication of the names of 84 allegedly corrupt judges in 2012, and calls for his conviction to be quashed. The conviction and prison sentence of Amara Hassan Mohamed al-Khattabi constitute a serious blow to freedom of expression in Libya, added the organization.
