I have a question to our President Ali Abdullah Saleh: What is the meaning of freedom and democracy?
Our President has to release orders to set free the journalist and reporter Saeed Thabet at once and without any delay, otherwise no need for him and his government to talk day and night about democracy and freedom when he doesn't know its meaning!
It is really a shame when a journalist is detained by his security people, and yet they ignore that he (Mr. Saeed Thabet) is in their custody!
