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.
