He was an American citizen imprisoned in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia released the convicted American citizen from prison.

An American citizen imprisoned for sharing a post critical of the kingdom’s government on Twitter has been released from prison, but is banned from traveling.

Saad Ibrahim al-Madi, 72, was sentenced to 16 years in prison by a criminal court in 2022 and an appeals court last month increased his sentence to 19 years.

His son Ibrahim says that his father is at home with his family in Riyadh, the Saudi capital. “All charges have been dropped but we now have to fight the travel ban,” Ibrahim said.

Neither Saudi nor US officials on the matter immediately confirmed al-Madi’s release.
