The woman was a Saudi citizen but had been in the United Kingdom (England) as a doctoral student. Presumably, all the posts she had made on Twitter had been done while she was in the United Kingdom.
The court ruling comes amid Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's crackdown on dissent.
The sentence is considered "shocking", even by Saudi standards of justice.
The woman is Salma al-Shehab, a mother of two and a researcher at Leeds University in Britain. She was detained during a family vacation on January 15, 2021, days before she planned to return to the United Kingdom.
According to the woman, she had been held for over 285 days in solitary confinement before her case was even referred to court.
