Terrible news via a public Facebook post by Ensaf Haider.
Important-Urgent: We received information that last Friday #RaifBadawi was subjected to a third medical examination to see if he was fit for a second session of lashing!
This surprising/unsettling examination came despite the conclusion of a previous medical check that was done two days earlier which recommended the stopping of any future flogging. #RaifBadawi
Strangely, the doctor conducting the examination wanted to sign the paper and approve the flogging, but due to discussions that took place and the previous medical report, he finally agreed to postpone the flogging for a further medical examination!
As a result, the intentions of the Saudi authorities are not clear and there is a possibility that the flogging of #RaifBadawi may take place again this Friday.
Keep up the pressure.
