Still No Action On Saudi Blogger

We are getting sick of this. Aside from a request for more info from duty minister Jim Anderton early in the New Year there are no public signs of action from the NZ Government to seek Fouad al-Farhan's release. If you share our frustration why not do something about it. Send an e-mail to the PM's foreign policy adviser andrea.smith@parliament.govt.nz and copy in the New Zealand Ambassador in Saudi Arabia trevor.matheson@mfat.govt.nz. In case he is not there copy in his #2 peter.noble@mfat.govt.nz . Ask them "what has happened?" And tell them that you are expecting action from the New Zealand government on this case.
