News at Eleven: Muhammad al-Ajami, 36, was jailed

in November 2011 after an investigative judge found him guilty of calling for the overthrow of the government of the Gulf sate.

Al-Ajami's lawyer, Dr Najeeb al-Nuaimi, told Al Jazeera on Sunday that his client's case will be brought before of the Court of Appeal on January 27 and that both the prosecution and the defence will present oral arguments.

However, al-Nuaimi said that his special request that al-Ajami be released on bail was rejected by the court without motivation.
