President Mohammed Morsi Officially CHARGED!

14.si

Saidia – Ousted Egyptian president is having such a bad time right now, after his fall from grace, the ousted president finds himself charged with “breaking free” from the prison back in 2011.

The general prosecutor just sent the files of Morsi’s case (Wadi Natroun) to a judge, and the reason is to officially look into the case and decide if the ousted president will be subjected to a trial or sent back to the prison in order to finish his sentencing, that is if the claims of his prison break are true.

This came as a shock to us because we never thought that a person who won free elections would end up in a prison cell for crimes he might have committed decades ago, or imprisoned on politics-related charges.

Egypt’s CBC Channel: The Voice Of Defiance

cbc_egypt

Saidia – Launched in 2011 by Egyptian businessman “Mohammed Amine”, CBC (Capital Broadcasting Center) has become since the day it was created a panel that voices out harsh but mostly “rightfully placed” criticism against the Egyptian authorities but most notably, the Muslim Brotherhood claims many supporters of the channel.

Following the fall of Mubarak, many private channels came to see the light in Egypt and one of the biggest, most successful and outrageously controversial channel is CBC. Without being confused with America’s CBS, CBC is in fact just as a powerhouse in Egypt as CBS is in the United States. Why? Well apart from its coverage of the Egyptian elections, many people inside and outside of Egypt believe that CBC is changing the history of Egyptian and Arab television with western-like shows (Bassem Youssef’s Al Bernameg and Houna Al Assima). Although the channel made its name as one of Egypt’s most candid and defiant channels in politics, its been noted by many that the channel’s programming which includes dramas is also making a revolution in the Arab cinema with Multi-Million dollar series with steamy and again, controversial subjects.

So why do we think CBC is the voice of defiance? Simply because we’ve been following the channel since 2011 and although we have reservations concerning “bias issues”, overall…we believe that the channel and its administration are one of the rising Voice Of Defiance that ultimately and intentionally unintentionally helped in the demise of President Morsi and his Society government.

3 killed and over 15 seriously injured in Egypt’s Sinai

rabia

Saidia – Reports from different media outlets, 3 people were killed and over 15 seriously injured in the latest attacks against army and police positions.

Fingers of accusation points out to the Muslim Brotherhood’s military wing for the latest terrorist attack in Sinai which took the lives of 3 people and injured over 15 following in an attack on a bus while an explosion also rocked an empty police HQ (under construction). The Muslim Brotherhood is largely being held responsible for previous and current attacks against army and police targets. These attacks came following warnings from the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood that the latter will not stay silent in the face of what it described as an “army coup” against the “legitimacy” of ousted president Morsi.

Sinai has become since the fall of president Mubarak, a safe haven for extremists, terrorists and surely militiamen of the Muslim Brotherhood who are believed to be stationed in the mountains of Sinai.

Former president Hosni Mubarak: Egypt’s only hope for stability?

Saidia – With the fall of a democratically elected president in Egypt Dr. Mohammed Morsi,many in and outside of Egypt are wondering if Mubarak was Egypt’s only hope for stability.

We don’t think so because even though Egypt was in a better shape during the rule of Mubarak especially in the foreign politic department it should be also noted that officials in Mubarak’s regime also ate their way through Egypt’s fortune, stealing Billions and causing major financial problems for Egypt.

Under Mubarak’s rule, Egypt’s dept rose to unprecedented records (until Morsi arrived) and corruption spread on different levels in all sorts of state department and no need to mention the degree of unemployment, poverty and illiteracy and that big fancy and wide spread three words “state of emergency”.

All this is bad but Egyptians enjoyed a stable life secured by strong security forces, intelligence and the much respected Armed forces. The question that should be asked is whether stability is better than freedom of expression…something Egypt’s Mubarak failed to give his people, among other necessities of a descent life.
