Coptic Solidarity Launches Advocacy Campaign for Imprisoned Christian Mohammed Hegazi
By CNWire

Washington, DC. - December 18, 2014 - /CNewswire/ -- Coptic Solidarity announces the launch of an advocacy campaign seeking the immediate and unconditional release of Mohammed Hegazi.  Mr. Hegazi -- who goes by his adopted Christian name Bishoy Armeya Boulos -- has been the subject of numerous spurious charges and sentences, prolonged detentions and threats to his and his family’s lives.  He has been targeted for the mere attempt in 2007 to reflect his personal conversion by applying to formerly change the religious status from Muslim to Christian on his state-issued identification card.

Dear friend

I am writing to ask you take a few minutes to take action on behalf of Mohammed Hegazi.  He is being detained in prison as I write this and has a court date scheduled on December, 28th.   We know that he has been beaten, and is being detained on charges that are spurious, and in one instance, beyond the statute of limitations.

‘The Muslim Brotherhood Will Become Much More Savage After Elections’

Editor’s note: More evidence of the Muslim Brotherhood’s illegal activities during elections continue to emerge—including tricking voters into not voting for other candidates by pretending they had died.  Such trickery will turn into ferocity once and if elections are no longer necessary and the MB assume power.

Dr. Refaat al-Saeed, leader of the Tagama’ Party [the socialist ‘Rally’ party], said that both the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafis violated the law during elections by using religious slogans, although the Elections Committee did not bother to reprimand or punish any of them. They utilized mosques and used unprecedented, underhanded, and devious propaganda in their elections campaign. They also deceitfully portrayed the [Coptic] Church as backing the Egyptian Bloc to turn people against the Bloc.

He added: “We need to be careful, as the Muslim Brotherhood will be become much more savage after elections.”

During a phone call with Life Today talk show, Dr. Saeed added: “A niqab-wearing woman affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood had fifteen IDs collected from other women in her neighborhood and used them to vote 15 times. The Brotherhood even claimed that a particular candidate had died—and went so far as to pray al-Fatiha for his soul outside the polling station—until this candidate went to the polling stations to prove to his constituents that he is still alive.”

The leader of the Tagama’ Party said that the Muslim Brotherhood played a dirty game in these elections and should be reprimanded, especially for opening the ballot boxes and fiddling with their content yesterday in the De La Salle School—and still the Elections Committee took no action against them.
