State security forces continued its vicious campaign against Muslim Brotherhood activists and sympathizers. Twenty people from all walks of life have been arrested so far in another episode of oppression committed by an illegitimate and corrupt regime which govern Egypt by iron and fire for more than a quarter of a century. 

Today’s chapter of this shameful episode featured Abdel Monem Mahmoud, a young and brilliant member of the Muslim Brotherhood who surrendered to the State Security Prosecutor a day after the State “insecurity” forces stormed his house in Alexandria and threatened to take his family hostage if he does not give himself up. 

Confident of his innocence, Mahmoud, decided to turn himself in since he has not committed any crimes. Mahmoud, 26, whose nickname is “Reuter Al Ikhwan”  or the “ Brotherhood’s Reuter” is a vibrant member of the Muslim Brotherhood media section, worked as a reporter for many media outlets. Mahmoud is also known for his involvement with several human rights and civil society groups including the National Committee for Defending Opinion Prisoners and the Coordinating Committee to Resist Iraq and Palestine Occupation.  He emerged in the media realm during popular outcry for reform and constitutional amendment of article 76.

An outspoken Mahmoud, he was a strong critic of police brutality during the latest parliamentary elections and helped uncover many cases of abuse. Mahmoud was detained previously in 2003 for four months after he was accused of aiding in a campaign to defend Iraq.
