Kareem Amer
Egypt

Adel Kareem Nabil Suleiman, better known by the pen name Kareem Amer, was arrested on 6 November 2006, for articles published on his blog (www.karam903.blogspot.com). He frequently attacked the authoritarian excesses of the government of Hosni Mubarak and criticised the country’s top religious authorities, particularly the Sunni University Al-Azhar, where he was studying law. The blogger was sentenced on 22 February 2007, to three years in prison for “inciting hatred of Islam” and one year for “insulting” the Egyptian president. The sentence was upheld on appeal on 12 March.

HE The Egyptian Ambassador

Dear Mr. Ambassador,

Reporters Without Borders would like to draw your attention to the case of Abdel Kareem Nabil Suleiman (also known as Kareem Amer), who was arrested on 6 November 2006.

Mr. Suleiman should be freed as he has been imprisoned for expressing his views on the Internet. We therefore urge you to intercede with your government with a view to obtaining his immediate release.

Yours sincerely,
