Jailed for Facebook 'joke'
February 24, 2008 - 7:20AM

Amnesty International said today it was "shocked" by a three-year 
jail term handed down by a Moroccan court to a man who registered a 
false internet Facebook profile as King Mohammed VI's brother.

The court in Casablanca sentenced 27-year-old computer engineer Fouad 
Mourtada yesterday and fined him 10,000 dinar ($A1400) for "the use 
of false information and usurping the identity of the prince".
