Saudi blog­ger Raif Badawi re­ceived the 2015 Sakharov Prize for Free­dom of Thought handed to his wife on his be­half in Stras­bourg in De­cem­ber. Badawi, who was sen­tenced to ten years in prison, 1,000 lashes and a hefty fine for host­ing on­line posts that were con­sid­ered blas­phe­mous by Saudi au­thor­i­ties, was hon­oured by the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment for his fight for free­dom of speech in Saudi Ara­bia. "Badawi has be­come a sym­bol and an in­spi­ra­tion for all those fight­ing for fun­da­men­tal rights in the re­gion and be­yond," said Euro­pean Par­lement Pres­i­dent Martin Schulz dur­ing the cer­e­mony.
