I remember that it started with a witch hunt against couple of journalists including Eissa and today it ended by imprisoning Eissa for two months because he spread rumours about the President’s health !!
Strangely it started in the beginning of Ramadan and now it ended in the end of Ramadan just days before the feast.
Eissa had to appeal the court order in last March still the appeal result was unlike to what we hope despite we all expected that something like that would happen. Two months in prison !! of course they are better than the original verdict but in the end it is jail.
Did not President Mubarak promise that journalists will not be sent to jail in his presidential period because of expression and opinions issues !! Oh yeah I forgot the man spread rumours !! He did not spread any rumour what so ever for God Sake , I can’t believe how they fabricate truth
After the news of this sad verdict , I knew that Eissa would hold a press in the Al Dostor Newspaper then I knew that his lawyer would hold the press conference and Eissa will go by himself to the authorities so he can start his time in jail :(
Tomorrow there will be a protest in front of the Journalists Syndication on its famous stairs downtown Cairo in objection to this sad disgusting rule.
And in Arabic here is the essay that caused all that buzz “ The Gods do not become sick"- Spread it and translate it guys , this is the least thing we can do.
Updates1- The Journalists of Al Dostor will have a stand in the Journalists Syndication tonight at 8 CLT
