Monem is free

Egyptian blogger and Journalist Abdel Monem Mahmoud, is free. Monem “arrived to his home in Alexandria less than two hours ago after being released from police custody,” said a statement published on the Brothers English website accompanied with recent photos of Monem smiling between his father and friends.
I just talked to Monem over the phone, state security finally released him at 2am sat the 2nd of June after interrogating him for hours about blogs and bloggers. I’m sure we’ll know more details later from Monem himself, ” wrote Alaa Abd El Fattah on Freemonem campaign blog.

Yesterday, Freemonem campaign team was concerned about Monem's safety when he almost disappeared following his release from the Tora Prison in Cairo.
