Alaa freed!

Posted by Richard on June 22, 2006

Apparently, the international public outcry over the imprisonment of Egyptian blogger Alaa Seif al-Islam, a.k.a. Alaa Abdel Fattah — the petitioning, the banners, and maybe even the Googlebombing — made a difference.

On Tuesday, June 20, after 45 days of imprisonment without charges for daring to call for a more independent judiciary, Alaa was ordered to be released by the state prosecutor. Today, finally, after an extra day of beating and mistreatment at a local jail, he’s been freed. Sandmonkey has all the details.
