By sentencing the Egyptian blogger Abdel Kareem Nabil Soliman Amer to four years in prison today, the Egyptian judiciary has manifested their role as a loyal tool of the Egyptian regime and as oppressors of freedom of speech. Myopic and sad. [link]
We have missed a golden opportunity to establish the rule of law in our country. Time would tell who was the real mastermind behind. I have found this story on the Internet which contains numerous lessons:
- USA wants ‘these’ kind of courts in partner countries (Egypt in this case).
- How freedom of expression is directly related with rule of law.
- Blogging is a big tool, so bloggres in Pakistan, beware, we do not have Iftikhar Chaudhry.
