Egypt writers: We are hassled by security powers and controlled

Egyptian writers have scrutinized the states of their detainment without preliminary or examination in political cases during the time of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.

Columnist and previous top of the Constitution Party, Khaled Dawoud, said he never envisioned that communicating his assessment would land him in jail for a very long time. He focused on that Egypt experiences an absence of pluralism, with media destinations being edited and endeavors being taken by the system to captivate the populace.

He added: “We used to have a differentiated media, at the same time, sadly, the new system set up under the authority of Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi has a particular vision for the media that retrogressed press opportunity drastically.”

In his meeting with the Al-Hurra site, Dawoud showed that private media has become a duplicate of state-possessed TV channels after an organization associated with true bodies endeavored to purchase private channels and papers.

He proceeded: “I don’t wish to return to jail. I don’t think going to jail is a demonstration of valor, and I don’t wish that it at any point happens to me or any other individual since it is an unpleasant and unfeeling experience.”

Another columnist, who talked on state of obscurity, affirmed that he was kept from getting back to his work after he was delivered from jail, saying: “It is hard for any neighborhood Egyptian paper to employ me since I am a dubious individual at this point.”

He reprimanded business as usual in the nation, focusing on that writers are exposed to provocation by the security powers and their members who look to draw nearer to the decision system.
