Free Bishoy Armyia (the former Mohammed Hegazy) from prison

Free Bishoy Armyia (the former Mohammed Hegazy)

from prison where he is held unjustly under false pretenses

Mohammed Hegazy [now Bishoy Armyia] has been detained in Egypt for allegedly inciting ‘sectarian strife’. Sources are concerned he may be tortured.
 
Hegazy, 31 – now widely known by his Christian name, Bishoy Armyia – was arrested [on December 3] at a café in Minya, Upper Egypt. Security forces claimed he’d been working for a Christian satellite TV channel and contributing to a ‘false image’ that Christians in Minya are a target for violence.
[It is believed] his arrest was yet another attempt to persecute Egypt’s ‘convert from Islam’ [and an act of revenge].
 
Bishoy Armyia was the first Egyptian ever to file a legal suit to seek to change his religious identity on his ID card. As a result, he received death threats, forcing him into hiding. He had previously been arrested and tortured because of his conversion.
 
 
An appeals court [in Egypt] suspended his case indefinitely in 2010. His case has been on hold since the 2011 revolution, as the constitution is revised. (Source: Morning Star News)
 
All signers of this petition are requesting that Egyptian authorities release Bishoy Armyia from prison as soon as possible and prior to Eastern Christmas.
