Unfortunately active North Sinai journalist and blogger Mohamed Sabry “who is well known to almost all foreign journalists who worked in North Sinai” was arrested yesterday while doing a report about the area where our soldiers were killed on the borders last August 2011. It turned out that this area is a military zone and now Sabry will face the charges of trespassing and filming in military zone !!
Sabry is currently in the Central Prison in North and tomorrow morning he will be interrogated by military prosecution.
I feel so worried and sad , Mohamed does not deserve this. He helped a lot of journalists and reporters including me when it comes to news , sources and contacts in Sinai. Unlike many journalists he is unbiased and cares for his country and people.
I just hope that he will be released soon insh Allah and return back to young bride. He was married shortly and it is truly unfair.
