I’m free after 29 hours of arrest
Egypt: Conscientious objector Maikel Nabil Sanad beaten and harassed
(05.02.2011) Dear friends, Intelligence Service released me today at 7 pm after 29 hours of arrest. They beat me a lot, sexually harassed me, threatened me to be tried in front of a military trial, urged me to join the army, stole my ID and my mobile phone. These were the worst days of my life and I think they did it to take revenge to my refusal of the military service. I’ll need a couple of days to rest after this horrible experience.
I would like to say thanks to all of you, thanks for all your continuous efforts supporting my freedom and safety.
Maikel Nabil Sanad: eMail, February 5, 2011.
