Cheikh Ould Mohamed Ould Mkheitir was given a -year period on November 9 after repented for charges of insulting the Prophet Muhammad in a published blog and left prison because he had already served four years in jail. He had at first been sentenced to death on December 24, 2014. But on Friday, Rassoul Ould El-Khal, a senior official within the countrywide rights fee, said he turned into “nevertheless in administrative detention expecting the quiet of the judicial process.”

The Mauritanian government has no longer commented on his fate, considering that November. A knowledgeable source told AFP he is “being held in a comfy area in Nouakchott,” the Mauritanian capital. This administrative detention breaches the law,” the blogger’s attorney, Fatimata M’Baye, told AFP. Some 20 NGOs on Friday also asked the nation to stop the “secrecy” and assure the safety of the blogger, who is in his thirties.
