Muhammad Ra'dun was charged on 30 May by the Supreme State Security Court (SSSC) with "disseminating false information" and with "involvement in an illegal organisation of an international nature". If convicted, he faces more than three years in prison. There has been no news of Nizar Ristnawi since his arrest on 18 April, and Amnesty International believes he is in grave danger.
