“The regime in covering its weak spots, turned to silent media on reporting or writing about their atrocities, dark hours killings and not to inform the world of human rights abuses and suffering in the country, however, I personally vow not to relinquish writing and a call for freedom of speech ought to continue till my last breath on earth.”

    Did Banaa notify the top applicant(s)?, because Banaa application says that “the top applicant(s) will be notified by the late of february”. but now Banaa still matches.
    Did Banaa change the date?
