Mohamed Al-Ajmi

HRD, Member
National Committee for Monitoring Violations

Mohamed Al-Ajmi is prominent blogger and a member of the National Committee for Monitoring Violations (NCMV) which documents violations of freedom of expression in Kuwait. He advocates for the rights of Bedoun. The term Bedoun, meaning 'without' in Arabic, refers to the community of stateless persons, native to Kuwait, who are not allowed to obtain any official state documents.

While the Constitution of Kuwait contains explicit guarantees for the right to free speech and association, in practice human rights defenders (HRDs) exercising these rights are targeted and face systematic violations.
