A group of activists on the Internet has sent a call for solidarity with Abdul Halim Qandil (the editor of Sawt Al-Omaa newspaper) on Facebook social networking website.
The call was entitled "We want to unite in solidarity with Mr. Abdul Halim Qandil against the thieves of people’s livelihoods."
Qandil is subjected to three lawsuits of insult and defamation by NDP official Ahmed Ezz and his wife, Dr.Shahinaz Al-Najjar and Samir Al-Shishtawy (a lawyer, and the one who filed the case of the four editors), after Qandil’s publication of "Egypt first thief” article in the newspaper.
The journalists had issued a statement in which they denounced the attacks that their colleagues were exposed to in the absence of all State institutions, including those newspapers that accepted to be silent.
