Saudi Arabia on Saturday released Shia cleric Tawfiq Al-Amer from prison after he completed his eight-year jail term, Arabi21 reported.
Al-Amer was arrested in 2011 on the grounds that he delivered speeches which incited against the Saudi ruling regime.
Supporters of Al-Amer said that he arrived in Al-Ahsa Governorate after leaving the Riyadh prison.
In August 2014, he was sentenced to eight years in prison and handed a ten-year travel ban which comes in to affect after his release, in addition to a ban on delivering sermons.
He was convicted of slander against the ruling regime and abuse of the faith, stirring up sectarian strife and calling for change in a series of sermons delivered in 2011.
