We are so sick of hearing how he is at death’s doorstep. Mohamed Soltan, 26, whose father, Salah, is a Muslim Brotherhood official, is an American-born troublemaker who went to Egypt to join the Muslim Brotherhood’s violent protests in support of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, has been on an extended hunger strike in an Egyptian prison. Yet he’s still alive.
Egyptian Streets His activism, which saw him covering the pro-deposed president Mohamed Morsi protests and the subsequent bloodshed on August 14th 2013, got him thrown in jail by the al-Sisi government.
Arrested on August 25th 2013 in a raid that was intended to arrest his terrorist father and Muslim Brotherhood official Salah Soltan, Mohamed’s family says he has been accused of spreading false news regarding the “operation of Rabaa” case.
To protest his innocence, Mohamed Soltan has been on a hunger strike since January 26 2013 – a hunger strike that is now seeing his life in extreme danger.
In statements to Egyptian Streets, Omar Soltan, Mohamed’s brother, said Mohamed has been “tortured physically and mentally, refused medical care to [a gunshot wound he received] while covering the [Rabaa Al-Adaweya] protests” and has been refused release on health grounds despite pleas from US President Obama and other US officials. (Gotta love how al-Sisi couldn’t care less about what Obama has to say)
Omar Soltan added that Mohamed has had multiple strokes due to a preexisting medical conditions and has on numerous occasions fallen into a coma. (Yet, he’s still not dead)
In the latest statement released by the family, a photograph showed Mohamed Soltan in a dire condition, with dry blood on the pillow next to him and blood in his mouth. (Beautiful)
“We are petrified with the thought of what condition Mohamed is currently in and we continue to call on all human rights organizations and the U.S. Government to do whatever it takes to secure his immediate release,” said the statement. (Knock yourselves out)
