Egyptian Security forces arrested blogger and Ikhwanweb correspondent Abdel Moneum Mahmoud at Cairo International Airport today while on his way to begin seven Arab countries tour to prepare a report about the status of human rights in the Arab world for the British satellite channel Al Hiwar. Monem had already boarded the plane when he was later pulled out by security forces.

After the arrest and sentencing of blogger Abdel Karim Sulieman to four years in prison for his internet blog, the Egyptian government seems to be pressing ahead with its campaign to silence all voices of civil dissent and encroaching on freedom of expression by arresting or intimidating bloggers and political activists.

Now armed by the constitution after it was amended to serve its interest to crush political opponents and the silence by the West towards its undemocratic and oppressive practices; the Egyptian government now feels invincible and has the perfect opportunity to eliminate all forms of credible opposition.

IKhwanweb strongly condemn the arrest of blogger Abdel Moneum Mahmoud and calls for his release and for the freedom of all prisoners of conscience in Egypt.
