Ahmed Abbas’ Controversial Case

Go here for a nice summary of the issues swirling around jailed Maldivian cartoonist Ahmed Abbas, who is being pursued not for an act of journalism but for the nature of a quote supplied a newspaper article. One thing I remember being a part of the story early on that I don't see anymore is the notion that this may be fueled by resentment for past work by the artist.
