Website collects names of Egypt political detainees

Ahram Portal, Tuesday 1 Mar 2011

The youth movements coalition has set up an online platform for families to enter the names of missing loved ones to demand their release

In response to the demands from youth coalitions to Egypt's temporary governing body, the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces for immediate release of detainees, the Supreme Council asked for a list of whom they wish to have released.

April 6 Youth Movement and January 25 Youth Coalition ban together in a call for detainees’ names.

The names can be registered on the April 6 Movement website.

Detainees’ families are protesting today in front of the military council demanding the release of their family members.

Among the demonstrators is the family of Khairat El-Shater, a well-known  political detainee, businessman and Muslim Brotherhood leader.
