Shez Cassim Plans His Future

Shez Cassim is a Minnesotan who spent most of 2013 in a prison in the United Arab Emirates.  His nine-month ordeal began when U.A.E. authorities took offense to a satiric video he posted on You Tube.     The video poked fun at Dubai teenagers with the made-up name "Satwa G" to reflect their wanna-be hip hop toughness.  
Cassim's release came only after he was convicted of defaming the country, sentenced to a year in prison and given credit for time served.  
 KFAI’s Christina Cerruti talked with Shez Cassim in Minneapolis, and filed this report.
