Saudi Arabia will punish online satire that "disrupts public order" with up to five years in prison, the public prosecutor said Tuesday, as the kingdom cracks down on dissent.
"Producing and distributing content that ridicules, mocks, provokes and disrupts public order, religious values and public morals through social media … will be considered a cybercrime punishable by a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of three million riyals ($800,000)," the public prosecution tweeted late Monday.
The kingdom's powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has drawn harsh criticism from rights groups over the targeting of human rights activists and political dissidents across the spectrum since his appointment in June 2017.
Saudi Arabia's legislation on cybercrime has sparked concern among international rights groups in the past.
Why so upset? Europe is just plain outlawing any form of satire unless you pay for the licensing. Fair use? Fuck you!
I tried to warn people for decades that copyright means the end of all creativity, fair use, historical preservation and human freedom.
Saudi Arabia should be colonized for oil and purged of its subhuman bedouin population. Mecca should be glassed outright.
Don't waste your time on the Saudis. Once the golden goose runs dry, the wealth will flee the country and the peasants will run around like headless chickens, waiting to be occupied. The end of oil will bring the total collapse of Saudi Arabia in a matter of weeks.
That is true, but the Saudis are not going to run out of oil for at least a century.
The blow up the oil fields. A couple precision strikes would bring production to a halt long enough for the oil economy in Saudi Arabia to collapse and ruin their top dog position for a century or two.
This means war
"Our grandfathers rode camels, our sons drive mercedes- our grandchildren will ride camels."
Saudi nobility only lasts as long as they're economically beneficial to the non-mudslime, civilized world.
Is it true camels milk can cure autism or is it just another /fit/ meme? Pls
They love to dish shit out, but cant take any bantz themselves. This is the true nature of the arab.
Even a well-placed SCUD volley, each missile loaded with missile defenses and a penetrative thermobaric warhead would slip past the yankee patriot batteries and strike a 10-pointer into the oil fields.
yes, but by camel's "milk" they were just using a polite arabic euphemism for semen
The black cube the ID in Jupiter. Destruction is supposed to be the mark of the End. The False "Jew" Masons that rule the world are trying to bring about the end. The red heifer was born and if you have love for God and your family you must ignore the racism they made you feel to divide you. Don't let them make you. The Bible Jews are burnt copper skinned and with hair of wool. The white userper "jews" are the "jews" who faked the number of the Holocaust to take the land for Isreal. They want to create chaos to rule the World, they believe it's ok to lie to you, they want to enslave you. "The False Jews Will Rule in The End Times."
Yes. The end times. It's about god damn time.
"Getting real tired with your shit." ~God
The Jews loves satire, such as Saturday Night Live. Through his "harmless" ridicule of American political figures, Lorne Michaels (aka David Lipowitz) is able to make the country a better place.
