Problem with dictators is that they do not feel accountable to anyone.

Very scary situation. Glad to hear he has been released. It's individuals like him who bring evidence of what's truly taking place for the world to see. -Thanks for the story

This is the ignorance of man instead of correcting the concern all they do is torture the one who stand up against the tide!!

By the way Carrie, ye's it's great that he's been released but he is still in grave danger. Those that tell the truth always are and especially in repressive autocratic regimes. I'm keeping him and all the others in my thoughts.
