The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information, ANHRI, denounced the negative practices exercised by the ministry of higher education and the Sinai University against the blogger Amr Salama after refusing to re-register him at the university in submission to security pressures. Security has previously forced the closure of the blog in which Amr enjoys his freedom of opinion and expression.
Amr had one choice then , he reapplied to Sinai University. There he was asked for the approval of the Dean. After the under Dean asked him for the reasons for leaving the university in the first place and then reapplying, he asked Amr about the poor living conditions in Sinai and told him he was too young to discuss politics. The young man was shocked at the Dean’s response that his admittance was subject to university administration and security authorities approvals. Amr tried to meet the university deputy for student affairs who informed him that his admittance to Sinai University is out of the question.
Amr also reported on the aids for Gaza being stolen from warehouses and from Arish stadium and on the demonstrations in support of Gaza. Amr was forced to close his blog to draw the attention of human rights defenders to what he is being exposed.
