RSF issues petition for the release of Egyptian bloggers

At the occasion of World Press Freedom Day the media NGo Reporters sans frontieres (RSF) issued a petition for the release of “Kareem Amer” and of his colleague Abdul-Moneim Mahmud.

RSF asks Internet-users to sign the petition on www.rsf.org, in which the worldwide press freedom organisation calls on the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), a conference organised under the UN mantle, to block Egypt from hosting the event in 2008 unless the two bloggers are freed.

The petition will be sent, on 6 November 2007, exactly one year after the arrest of “Kareem Amer”, to Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak, to Executive Coordinator of the IGF, Markus Kummer, as well as to the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon.

For more information visit the organization’s website at www.rsf.org.
