Blogger Kareem Amer´s final appeal rejected by court

Today, another chapter has been added to the never ending story about the blogger Abd al Karim Nabil Soliman, or Kareem Amer as he´s better known, a story that reminds us of how Kafkaesque the Egyptian court and prison system can be at times.

Kareem´s final appeal was rejected by the Cairo misdemeanor cassation court earlier today. The blogger was sentenced to four years imprisonment for insulting Islam (three years) and insulting the President of the republic(one year)on February 22nd 2007, but his ordeal began much earlier on October 26th 2005.

More later.
