Tal al-Mallohi, a Syrian blogger arrested in 2009, was sentenced to five years in prison in 2011 on charges of disclosing state secrets. Despite a court ordering her release in 2013, al-Mallohi, who wrote about Palestinian rights, has not been freed. As of late 2015, authorities had not disclosed a reason for her continued detention.
