Abeer al Askary recieves Canadian press freedom award

The gifted egyptian journalist Abeer al Askary, working for al Doustur will be recieving the International Press Freedom Award from the Canadian organisation, Canadian Journalists for Free Expression(CJFE). She will share the prize with a pakistani journalist Hayat Ullah who will recieve the award posthumously after being abducted and killed while working. The third award winner is the columbian journalist Hollman Morris. The award cermony will held on November 1st in Toronto.

This was the collective motivation:

"This year's winners come from some of the toughest regions in which to practice journalism," said Carol Off, chairperson of CJFE's awards committee. "They are truly remarkable people, committed to speaking out, and telling the stories of the world's most vulnerable citizens."

And this is how Abeer is presented on the International Press Freedom site:

"Abeer Al-Askary is a young Egyptian journalist who has published several investigative reports on controversial and threatening issues. Among her writings are reports on state security officers within the Ministry of Interior who have supervised torture against activists and prisoners. She has also written on corruption and lack of transparency in the educational system in Egypt. Additionally, her writings have contributed to revealing fraud during the Egyptian elections, especially concerning the President's son and the issue of bequeathing the presidency to him. Another example of the sensitive nature of her work are articles focused on the rights of the oppressed Egyptian Bahais in Egypt at a time when extremist Islamic thought is widespread. Because of her writings, she has fallen victim to a series of attacks by the Egyptian state security authorities. For example, Al-Askary was one of the victims of the assault on May 25, 2005, that targeted activists and journalists covering demonstrations against the referendum on constitutional amendments in Egypt. Female journalists were not only physically assaulted, but also sexually harassed in an attempt to break their will."

Please let´s not forget that Aber al Askary´s boss, al dostour editor Ibrahim Eissa and her collegue Sahar Zaki was sentenced to one year in prison in June 2006.

Alf mabrouk Abeer!
