Bogday has been in jail for 13 months in Saudi Arabia after a quarrel with a neighbor near his barber shop. Bogday was accused of cursing the name of God.
Bogday`s wife, Muazzez, told the A.A that family members were in Saudi Arabia for the appeal hearing of the case. She said they would once again appeal against the verdict.
"We are devastated after the court verdict today," she said. "We lost all our hopes. We do not know what to do next."
