Human Rights Watch defends Egyptian blogger

An Egyptian blogger was sentenced to three years in prison this week. The Human Rights Watch issued a statement that can be read here. Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch, said this in response to the sentencing:

“Maikel Nabil’s three-year sentence may be the worst strike against free expression in Egypt since the Mubarak government jailed the first blogger for four years in 2007. The sentence is not only severe, but it was imposed by a military tribunal after an unfair trial.”
