Muslim Brotherhood blogojournalist Abdel Moneim Mahmoud is now in Mubarak’s police custody. A police force raided Moneim’s house early this morning, but he was not present. He mass mailed us a message about the raid, before he went to turn himself in.

I have so much respect for Moneim, who is one of the greatest and most active young Brothers in the media field. In the journalist and activist circles we like to call him “Ikhwan’s Reuters.” Polite, diplomatic, and does not miss an event, whether organized by the Islamists or secularists, Moneim enjoys wide popularity among his peers in the MB and leftist circles.

Moneim was detained in 2004, and brutally tortured by Mubarak’s Gestapo in State Security’s HQ in Nasr City (also known as Egypt’s Guantanamo, as victims of extraordinary renditions like Abu Omar, Mohamed el-Zawahri, Mamdouh Habib were tortured there).

The Muslim Brotherhood bloggers are calling for a solidarity sit-in tomorrow Saturday, 5pm, in front of the Press Syndicate, if Moneim was not released by then. They are asking for the solidarity of activists from all political tendencies.

 

Release Moneim!

Coptic blogger Hag Gergess designed the following banner for the campaign.The poster reads (How much more can tthey choke our freedom. I support Abdel Monem Mahmoud)
