Galal El-Behairy’s sentence to be announced in Military Court, May 16

#FreeGalal   #PrisonersofBalaha

With no forewarning, the Egyptian Military Court let it be known that Galal El-Behairy will be sentenced on May 9. This may be more threatening to his life and well-being than the parallel civilian case. A statement by human rights organizations, diplomats and artists is in preparation. 

• Statement by Finnish PEN (with signatories from human rights organisations and music organisations): Egypt’s grim blow on freedom of expression and human rights: the tortured poet Galal El-Behairy must be freed.
• FreeMuse calls for charges to be dropped against Egyptian poet.
• International Music Council (IMC) statement in favour of freedom of artistic expressions and creativity
