Social Media User in Saudi Arabia Sentenced to Death After Reposting Criticism of Crown Prince Bin Salman

Human rights organizations are now reportedly outraged by the Saudi man’s death sentence for tweeting criticisms of the controversial Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, also known as MBS.

The sentencing of Mohammad Alghamdi, who is in his mid-50s, is the latest in an escalating crackdown on social media users in Saudi Arabia.

According to National Public Radio, Muhammad Alghamdi only has 10 followers across his two anonymous X social media profiles.

Others who engaged in online criticism of the Saudi government have received sentences ranging from 20 to 45 years in prison; this is thought to be the first death sentence.

According to Human Rights Watch, Alghamdi, a father of seven, was detained by Saudi police in 2022 outside his Mecca house.

After intelligence services decided that the crown prince ordered the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018, who was also critical of the Saudi government, MBS gained international attention and became a flashpoint for debate.

The FBI is looking into allegations that two X workers in the US leaked the names of users of anonymous accounts.
