Just read this on Arabawi, in which he translates a letter from Amr Gharbia stating that Judge Abdel Fattah Morad, head of Alexandria Appeal Court, has started a lawsuit against the government in Egypt’s Administrative Courts in order to block a number of Egyptian websites including a list of 21 blog sites. If this is true, it will be a catastrophic event for freedom of expression in Egypt. This judge is the same that is suppose to preside over the court that will hear the appeal of Kareem, and is a known plagiarist (Arabic link) in his book about the Internet.
The government is innocent of this crime if it is for real; the real conspirator here is a judge, and the lawsuit is against the government. I wish I can scan his brains and find how was he educated? was he severly beaten as a child? did he have to endure hardships in his life that made him hate freedom? just some thoughts!
