The SIS welcomes the participation of visiting and resident correspondents from various foreign newspapers, news agencies and television networks in covering the remaining steps of the future roadmap that different political and religious forces agreed upon, which includes the presidential and parliamentary elections. This comes in pursuant of press and publishing freedom and guaranteeing maximum transparency in the electoral process in the context of forging ahead towards building a modern democratic system that achieves the aspirations of the Egyptian people. The SIS renews its appreciation of the role played by foreign correspondents in covering the referendum on the new constitution on 14-15 January, which represents the main step towards the implementation of Egypt's roadmap for the future. It also re-emphasizes its interest in both the objective and neutral coverage of political and societal developments in Egypt towards building a real democratic system that respects the freedom of press, expression and publishing, and the constructive criticism and adherence to facts in coverage. The SIS stresses anew the full respect of the Egyptian government to the freedom of press and publishing as long as the necessary permits are obtained. Restricting the freedom of press and publishing is prohibited by the law and it is inconsistent with the principles of true democracy, which we seek to build. The Egyptian law fully guarantees these freedoms and does not penalize thought or opinion unless they turn into an action penalized by the Egyptian Penal Code or falls within the crimes that threaten the country’s national security and supreme interests. The SIS further confirms that the Egyptian law does not criminalize mere contact with or prior knowing of any one accused of committing a crime or any person imprisoned pending a case, as this, in itself, is not considered a crime to be punished for except if this contact is a sort involvement in committing the crime by means of assisting, inciting or prior agreement. This means that only the one who commits a crime or takes part in a crime shall be punished in accordance with the principle of personal punishment stipulated in the Egyptian law. Finally, the SIS welcomes the continuing communication with visiting and resident correspondents and re-affirms its commitment to furnishing them with all support and assistance in performing their tasks.

Société : Une génération qui fait parler d’elle

Société : Une génération qui fait parler d’elle | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Ces jeunes nés pendant les années 1980 ont porté le flambeau de la révolution du 25 janvier. Profitant du progrès technologique, ils ont créé leur propre univers et leurs armes de lutte. Portrait de ces jeunes qui ont gardé leur charme et leur singularité. (...)

Une génération qui s’est inspirée d’idées, de tendances et d’opinions émanant de tous les horizons grâce à Internet. Assoiffée de connaissances, cette génération a relevé le défi d’accéder à l’information. « Au début, le prix de la connexion Internet était élevé et les ordinateurs n’étaient pas à la portée de tout le monde. Mais on n’a pas baissé les bras car c’est cet espace virtuel qui nous permettait de rêver. On se rassemblait pour payer le prix d’une connexion et on utilisait un mot de passe en commun. Nombreux sont les jeunes qui se sont procuré des ordinateurs d’occasion pour en avoir un à un prix modéré », relate Hazim, ingénieur de 32 ans.

Autour de ce monde qui tourne autour de l’ordinateur et du Net, de nouveaux métiers ont vu le jour comme graphiste, designer, webmester et bien d’autres. Certains jeunes ont même tenu tête à leurs parents pour ne pas exercer des métiers traditionnels.

Egypt struggles in a confusing sea of information

An unyielding chain of immediate reactions to false information continues to sidetrack Egypt from most of its priority issues. From fears of national security threats to rumors of sabotage that pass through retaliatory exchanges of insult and character assassinations all the way to notions of marred dignity, many Egyptians are incapable of shifting focus to what really matters now. The myriad of mostly either unreal or very much exaggerated information of one thing after the other has served to create more confusion and a definite illusion of chaos and curtails much productive ability in the country.

In the past week alone, as Egyptians felt the frustrating delay and shut down of their access to internet service, immediate information exchanged rumored the capturing of three divers who allegedly cut Egypt’s internet sea cable! If that found a few non-believers, the reports of a global hacker attack could have been more plausible, especially when their last possible culprit was declared to be sabotage by a neighboring country. The immediate reactions to all three presented scenarios seemed to fall right on target as the fourth began floating in the media and information channels. It must be yet another ploy from the regulator to re-bug or reconfigure the system for more eavesdropping facilities.

Group sues for information on launching private radio channels

Group sues for information on launching private radio channels | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

A human rights watchdog filed a lawsuit Monday against the information minister, the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Radio and Television Union and the chairman of the Media Free Zone to force them to disclose conditions required for launching private radio channels in Egypt.

The Bokra Foundation for Media Studies and Human Rights argued that most Egyptians don't know how to obtain a radio license in the country, and had filed a request for such information from the defendants but were declined.

“The decision violates Article 47 of the Constitution, which requires the authorities to disclose requested information, unless affecting privacy or national security,” said Bokra Legal Affairs Director Mostafa Mahmoud.

 

“The Radio and Television Union must be transparent and clear,” he added, denouncing the lack of access to information pertaining to public and civil society organizations' interests.

 

Starting in 2003, the government started to give licenses to private companies on a very limited scale to launch their own commercial radio stations. Nogoum FM, which specialized in broadcasting popular Egyptian songs, was the first private radio station.
