NGOs on Trial in Egypt

Posted on the 02 March 2012 by Warigia @WarigiaBowman
Here is a very well-written editorial by my former colleague, Khaled Fahmy on the trial of 43 pro-democracy activists. I have also included a good NPR piece on the same. My take on it is that the SCAF is trying  to intimidate pro-democracy activists. Obviously, the current major obstacle to democracy in Egypt is the head of the government itself, the SCAF. Another motivation may be to initimidate all actors in the press and the NGO sector as a whole.
