Raif Badawi’s family during 81st Congress

Photograph of Raif Badawi’s family taken during the 81st PEN International Congress which took place from 13 to 16 October 2015 in Quebec City. The title of the Congress was Translation = Creation = Freedom. Badawi was arrested in 2012, in Saudi Arabia, for insulting Islam and later sentenced to ten years of prison, 1000 lashes and a fine. Due to Badawi’s poor health, however, the sentence was never fully carried away. Badawi’s wife, Ensaf Haidar, took refuge in Canada with the couple’s three children and has campaigned for his liberation ever since. From left to right are: Suzanne Cayouette; Ensaf Haidar; Najwa Badawi; Marc-Antoine Arrieta; Terad Badawi; with Anne-Laure Mathieu – the Congress organiser – seated at the front, beside Miriyam Badawi.

La famille de Raif Badawi au 81e Congrès

Photographie de la famille de Raif Badawi prise durant le 81e Congrès du PEN International, qui a eu lieu du 13 au 16 octobre 2015, à Québec. Le titre de ce Congrès était Translation = Creation = Freedom. Badawi a été arrêté en 2012, en Arabie Saoudite, pour insulte à l'Islam, et a plus tard été condamné à dix ans de prison, 1000 coups de fouet et une amende. En raison de son mauvais état de santé, cependant, la peine n'a jamais pu être entièrement administrée. Ensaf Haidar, l'épouse de Badawi, a trouvé refuge au Canada avec les trois enfants du couple et fait depuis campagne pour sa libération. Debouts, de gauche à droite: Suzanne Cayouette; Ensaf Haidar; Najwa Badawi; Marc-Antoine Arrieta; et Terad Badawi. Accroupis: Anne-Laure Mathieu, chargée du congrès; et Miriyam Badawi.

La familia de Raif Badawi durante el 81o Congreso

Fotografía de la família de Raif Badawi durante el 81o Congreso de PEN Internacional, que tuvo lugar del 13 al 16 de octubre de 2015 en Ciudad de Quebec. El Congreso fue titulado Translation = Creation = Freedom. Badawi fue arrestado en 2012 en Arabia Saudí, por insultar al Islam, y fue sentenciado a 10 años de prisión, 1000 latigazos y a pagar una multa. Debido a la mala salud de Badawi, la sentencia nunca acabó aplicándose en su enteridad. Su esposa, Ensaf Haidar, se refugió en Canadá con los tres hijos de la pareja, y ha hecho campaña por la liberación de su marido desde entonces. De izquierda a derecha: Suzanne Cayuoette; Ensaf Haidar; Najwa Badawi; Marc-Antoine Arrieta; Terad Badawi; con Anne-Laure Mathiew, organizadora del Congreso, sentada al frente, junto a Miriyam Badawi.
