Field Marshal Tantawi,
I hereby urgently call upon you to immediately and unconditionally release Maikel Nabil Sanad!
Maikel Nabil Sanad has been unfairly tried in a military court, although he is a civilian. He was sentenced in absence both of him and his lawyers to 3 years in military jail - merely for expressing his critical opinion on the way the Egyptian army dealt with protesters. This criticism has been on the internet a thousand times by many bloggers. There is no justification to jail this one blogger for his critical views that many others too have expressed without having been arrested and sentenced. It is also a violation of the Interim Constitutional Declaration that the SCAF has guaranteed to the Egyptian people to be valid and respected by the army!
Maikel Nabil Sanad has been in hunger and thirst strike, has suffered a coma and is in a deteriorating health situation. His life is in danger. Should anything happen to him, the SCAF will be fully responsible for his injuries or even his death!
Please ensure immediately that Maikel Nabil Sanad is receiving adequate medical care and release him on the grounds that no civilian in the post-revolutionary Egypt should be sentenced in an unfair military trial for expressing his personal views and opinions!
Your sincerely
