12 July 2009, Sunday

–          Hasan was presented to the maximum criminal court. He stated that he is not guilty with the accusation. His lawyer Mr Hafedh Ali raised an issue that he was not allowed to see the full reports and files of the case which is a violation to the rights of the accused. Also there was no comparison between the actual list of names with what was published online, to make sure that there is an actual case! Hafedh requested release of Hasan for whatever kind of guarantees the court may ask. Again his request was rejected. Hasan will stay in Jail until 16 Sep 2009 when the final judgment will be said, without even allowing him to have a proper trial where he can defend himself!

16 Sep 2009:

Hasan was  sentenced by the High Criminal Court to three years in prison.
