This is totally unconfirmed, but a message has been posted on Montadayat.org claiming that Ali Abdulemam is going to be detained for a further 15 days. Apparently, he is being accused of violating the Press Law, spreading lies and provoking hatred towards the government. The forum message is also announcing a protest tomorrow (Monday 28th) in front of the Public Prosecutor's office at 3pm.
Will this be the birth of another goverment created superstar?
Update (11:30am): Just wanted to confirm the statement above that Ali is being held in custody for upto 15 days. He is reportedly facing 5 specific charges:
- Defaming the royalty
- Inciting hatred towards the regime
- Publishing news to destabilize security ("تزعزع الأمن")
- Violating the Press Laws
- Violating the Communication Laws
Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the Press and Communication Laws?
And it seems that Ali is well on his way to superstardom. Check out these banners that are going around:
