Help Fouad

Fouad, who was jailed awaiting trail for creating a fake facebook profile of a Moroccan prince, has been sentenced to three years in jail. His family sent a letter to the prince requesting clemency:
Fouad Mourtada, like thousands of people who create fake profiles of well-known personalities or celebrities on Facebook, has in no way acted in a willingness to cause nuisance to Your Highness, for whom he has always shown the greatest of respect
Help Fouad was launched, a website to help free Fouad. Moroccan bloggers also stopped blogging for 24 hours. His family also say that he was beaten unconscious at the time of his arrest.

This is just insane.
