Court orders Mauritanian web editor's retrial
04 Feb 2010

The editor of Taqadoumy website Hanevy Ould Dehah remains in detention after a  Supreme Court decision to retry him  on a charge of  ‘offending public decency’, a crime for which he has already served a six-month sentence.  Commenting on his original trial Reporters Without Borders  said “The sole aim of this disproportionate sentence is to restore the reputation of Ibrahima Moctar Sarr, a politician whose financial dealings Dehah examined.”
