Omani blogger threatened with deportation
The famous blog "I wish I have wings", established by Ma'amari in 2008, is well known for its professionalism and credibility, allowing it to gain the trust of thousands of Omani nationals. In contrast, it has aroused the ire of the Omani authorities due to its coverage of the excesses of the security services during the suppression of protests in the Sultanate of Oman last year, as well as publishing copies of the medical report of the martyr Abdullah Ghamlasa, who died of a bullet wound in February 2011.
”It will be a terrible crime if the Jordanian authorities proceed to deport Ma'amari to the Sultanate of Oman, where his life may be in danger. Such a move would run contrary to international law and covenants on human rights. Even if he is allowed to move to another country of his choice, the Jordanian government should not seek revenge for his leading role in the defense of freedoms in Oman, and by doing so tarnish their reputation as a state,” said ANHRI.
ANHRI also calls on the Omani authorities to respects the rights and freedoms of Omani nationals, and not to abuse their right to free expression and political criticism or their right to assembly and protest against the political situation or corruption.
