According to Compass Direct News, Hamoud Saleh Al-Amri, a Saudi Christian was arrested in January for blogging about why he converted from Islam and also criticizing the kingdom’s judiciary. The punishment for leaving Islam in Saudi Arabia is death. Gamal Eid with Arab Network for Human Rights Information stated, “He is mentally not stable, because he had the courage to say in his blog that he is a Christian. Anyone in his right mind in Saudi Arabia wouldn’t do that.”
Compass Direct states that, “in recent years there have been no known cases of kingdom citizens formally convicted and sentenced with capital punishment for the offense.”
We give thanks to God for these release of Hamoud. Pray for his safety and protection while he is still there in the kingdom.
