Saudi intelligence intimidates and threatens in Saudi media

This is one of the dirtiest thing I have seen in an Arab newspaper.  This is from the mouthpiece of Prince Salman, Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat (which is one of the most crude and vulgar of all the media of Saudi princes).  It contains an article about Saudi human rights advocates who dared to express thoughts contrary to the Saudi government in the case of the Egyptian lawyer, Al-Jizawi.  It basically names those Saudis and publishes what they wrote on Twitter, clearly to scare them and to intimidate them.  You don't expect much from those media of Saudi princes, but this is one of the lowest I have seen.
