Trial information

Alleged crimes: Saudis said that the reason behind his arrest was his objection to raising electricity bills fees in a tweet dating back to last March. Others transmitted a short video clip, which showed the Crown Prince saying to Al-Barjas: "We want you to criticize the project." On the day he criticized his imprisonment. "

While the journalist Jamal Khashoggi considered that "these arrests prevent the soul from tweeting, from joy, from Eid and even from hope, Barjas deserves to be thanked and heard from him." Likewise, Iman Al-Hamoud, a Saudi journalist living in France, wrote : “Dear friend Barjis Al-Barjas, one of the most sincere lovers of the homeland with him .. I noticed a change in his line recently, even this change did not help him. Beware, oh homeland, of mistakes made by your enemies.”
