His family is allowed to see him once a week but only briefly (the last time was only for five minutes) and in the presence of the prison governor and several guards who listen to the conversation. The family was not allowed to see him on 24 January, when guards told his wife he did not want to see her, which Boukhdir said later was a lie.“We also deplore his unfair trial by a court in Sakiet Ezzit,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “The charges against him must be dropped.” Boukhdir, correspondent of the London-based Al Quds Al Arabi newspaper and the Al-Arabiya TV station’s website, was arrested on 26 November last year and sentenced to a year in prison on 4 December for “insulting a public official,” “offensive behaviour” and “refusing to show identity papers.” He has also written articles for several websites, including Tunisnews and Kantara.
