From Advocates For The Persecuted
The following is a report from our field contact in Egypt, as we received it in November, 2006:
Hany was a soldier in the southern part of Aswan – unit # 2152C – 33. The leader of his unit hated him just because he’s Christian. He kept humiliating him in front of the other soldiers for no reason. He used to punish him for things that he was not part of. Hany felt total injustice. In Egypt, military is obligatory, that’s why Hany had no where to go.
When the head of his unit (no body knows his name) was fed up with Hany, he tried to make him deny Christianity and be a Moslem. Hany refused many times and later he talked with his mother on the phone and told her about that guy. Hany told his mother that when he told the head of the unit that if he tries to Islamize him again, he will have to report him to the Military Securities, he replied that “I’ll show you what I can do”, and threatened him. Hany was so worried and anxious on the phone with his mum. He knew that this officer was up to something very evil but was not sure what. He asked her to pray for him.
Four days later, Hany’s body was found in the river Nile near where he lives. He was tortured everywhere. We’re sending you a picture of the body which was taken before the funeral, and a picture of him. His family filed a case # 5251/2006 Nagaa Hamadi- Qena, but no one is giving any attention to this case. This incident happened in August 2006.
Please help Hany’s family by forwarding this to the whole world.
