The blogger and conscientious objector Maikel Nabil Sanad arrested

Maikel Nabil Sanad, a blogger and conscientious objector, was arrested by military police during the night. The next day a military court ordered him held for 15 days for investigation. He was facing a possible three-year jail sentence on charges of “insulting the military institution,” publishing false information about it and “disturbing public security.” According to the blogosphere, he was arrested because of a blog entry criticizing the lack of transparency in the armed forces since President Hosni Mubarak’s removal. Sanad has already had two spells in prison, during which he said he was tortured.
