和無數名青年部落客每天所做的一樣,Abdul Kareem Nabil Suleiman也在網頁上打上他對政治的看法,批評埃及政府與宗教權勢們;然而,和其他青年部落客大不相同的是,這位23歲,在網路上暱稱為Karim Amer的埃及青年,因被控以煽動伊斯蘭仇恨、污衊國家元首、散播擾亂社會秩序的訊息,而在今年二月被捕入獄,判刑四年。

Abdul Kareem Nabil Suleiman did what thousands of young bloggers around the world do every day: he logged onto his computer and typed in his thoughts about the politics of his country, criticizing both the Egyptian government and religious authorities. For this the 23-year-old former student, widely known on the Internet as "Karim Amer," was arrested and sentenced in February 2007 to four years in prison on charges including "incitement to hate Islam," "defaming the President of the Republic," and "spreading information disruptive of public order."判刑肇因於在他自己的部落格上,寫下關於發生在亞歷山卓城Maharram Bek district的流血衝突事件。事件爆發在2005年十月,在當局得悉位於該區的Coptic教堂竟播放反伊斯蘭的影片之後。在部落格上Karim Amer大聲撻伐政府對基督徒的迫害並表達他世俗性的思想。The charges relate to writings on his blog about sectarian riots that took place in October 2005 in Alexandria's Maharram Bek district. The riots followed reports that the video of a play believed to be anti-Islam was being screened in a Coptic church in the district. Karim Amer denounced the attacks on the Christians and expressed secular views.國際特赦組織相信Karim Amer是名良心犯。埃及政府將他監禁65企圖迫使他改變想法。國際特赦組織呼籲埃及政府能撤銷對於良心犯的指控因為這些良心犯只是行使他們的權利以和平的方式表達他們的思想、良知與信仰。國際特赦組織認為監禁Karim Amer和其他的部落客是埃及政府阻撓公民社會正常發展的手段之ㄧ。Amnesty International considers Karim Amer to be a prisoner of conscience. He spent 65 days in solitary confinement, as authorities attempted to compel him to change his views. AI urges the Egyptian authorities to repeal legislation that stipulates prison sentences for those who simply exercise their right to peaceful expression, thought, conscience and religion. Amnesty International sees the detention of Karim Amer and other bloggers as part of a long-standing effort by the Egyptian government to muzzle civil society.Please send cards of support to:請寄卡片給Karim Amer表達你的支持
