Kuwaiti blogger, Dr Abdullah Al-Saleh, was recently sentenced to five years in prison for slandering the UAE by the Kuwaiti criminal court.
Furthermore, he sentenced to a number of other criminal charges, with a jail term totaling 31 years. However, he has filed a request for political asylum in the United Kingdom.
This is not the first time Al Saleh has faced charges for insulting authorities. Earlier, he faced criminal charges after insulting Saudi Arabia.
Kuwait has strict laws when it comes to slandering countries and putting inter-country relationship at stake. Earlier in 2016, MP Mubarak Al Duwaila, was sentenced to two years in prison for insulting the UAE.
