Al-Jarba said in a statement today, Saturday, "so far, we do not know the real reasons behind the arrest of Ibrahim al-Soumydaie."
"If he was arrested for criticizing the heads of the government and the Parliament, I say that the president who fears the constructive criticism on whatsapp and Facebook he does not deserve to lead a country."
