KUWAITI MAN SENTENCED TO 5 YEAR PRISON TERM FOR INSULTING RULER ON TWEETER

A Kuwaiti court sentenced a man to five years in prison on Sunday for insulting the emir on Twitter, a rights lawyer and news websites said, in the latest prosecution for criticism of authorities via social media in the Gulf Arab state.
The court gave Kuwaiti Mohammad Eid al-Ajmi the maximum sentence for the comments, news websites al-Rai and alaan.cc reported. In recent months Kuwait has penalised several Twitter users for criticising the emir, who is described as "immune and inviolable" in the constitution.
