Egypt: Imprisoned pacifist blogger Maikel Nabil Sanad in solitary confinement

by War Resisters International (WRI)

Nabil Sanad has been moved to solitary confinement at El Marg prison.

Maikel Nabil Sanad was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment on charges of "insulting the military" by the 10th of Ramadan military court in Nasr City near Cairo on 10 April 2011 (see co-alert, 11 April 2011). The sentence was ratified on 12 May 2011, and announced on 22 May 2011.

At the same time, Maikel Nabil Sanad was moved to solitary confinement at El Marg prison. Before, he was imprisoned in a special punishment cell at El Marg prison, which did not allow him to see any sun light. In addition, his cell mates did threaten him. Maikel Nabil Sanad demanded to see a doctor, as he suffers from unstable blood pressure and needs regular medication and medical attention. Only one week ago, he was finally able to see a doctor.

He also requested to be transferred to the prison hospital, where it would be easier to assist him in case of a medical emergency. Where he was imprisoned before, it would have been impossible for him to get attention at night.

While moving him to solitary confinement might be seen as a response to threats from his cell mates, it is still a punishment, and usually considered as torture.

War Resisters’ International calls for letters of support to Maikel Nabil Sanad:
