Egypt: Military court set retrial date of blogger Maikel Nabil Sanad on day 57 of his hunger strike

(13.10.2011) Today, the date for the re-trial of imprisoned pacifist blogger Maikel Nabil Sanad, who is on the 52nd day of his hunger strike, has been set for next week, 18 October 2011 - which would be day 57 of his hunger strike. Although the military appeal court on Tuesday declared the initial sentence of three years’ imprisonment void, and ordered a re-trial of the blogger, who has been on hunger strike since 23 August, the court did not order his release pending re-trial. While Tuesday’s judgement looks positive on first view, it can turn into a de-facto death sentence for pacifist blogger Maikel Nabil Sanad, as he might not survive long enough to see his re-trial, which has now been set for 18 October.
