#FreeAlaa : 100 Days without a Trial

The family , friends and protesters organized today a stand at the Prosecutor General right now demanding a trial’s date to be set for activist and blogger Alaa Abdel Fatah who has been in detention for 100 days and for activist Ahmed Abdel Rahman who has been in detention for 102 days.
Alaa Abdel Fatah was arrested from 100 days ago for allegedly organizing a protest against Military trials for civilians in front of the cabinet if you remember. Up till this day the prosecution has not referred him to a trial. His father and lawyer Ahmed Seif El Islam and the rest of his family presented a petition to day to the head of the appeal court. Their demand is clear : Release both Alaa and Abdel Rahman
This is getting ridiculous for real.
Here is the statement of Alaa’s family in English by Dr. Ahdaf Soueif

Of course the honorable citizens of Downtown Cairo harassed them as usual in the protection of security forces.
