In the name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful,
I would like to get a written response from the Prime Minister Dr Ahmed Nazif and the Egyptian Minister of Interior Major General Habib Al-Adly regarding the continuation of the arrest of Sinai blogger Mosaad Abu Fajr. This is in response to a new UN report which confirms that Egypt 's security forces continue to kidnap torture and lock up innocent citizens in secret prisons. For what, are these measures practiced? For Mosaad Abu Fajr and all the Mosaad unjustly detained I submit this question.
On December 26th, 2007, Abu Fajr was arrested and was accused with charges that security bodies use to lever against any political activists calling for democracy. The same charges such as instigation to riot and sabotage of public properties in addition to others were levered against him, as his imprisonment renewal was decided by the general prosecution repeatedly.
Abu Fajr has been issued numerous release orders by prosecution and 16 rearrest warrants issued over a two year period. Despite 15 court acquittals he continues to be detained. I urge the Egyptian Interior Minister to comply with the court orders and order the immediate and unconditional release.
The demand for basic human rights of the Sinai Bedouin is not a crime I fear for his life and I call on all responsible to interfere and follow through with the court orders.
