Yup, it’s true. Here’s the story:
On the night of March 5th, 2009, Sudanese security forces had carried out a raid on the house of internet activist and lawyer Abdel Hakim Abdel Rahman Nasr only few hours after he expressed his support to the ICC Arrest Warrant for President Omar al-Bashir on the online International Forum for Nubia of which he was a moderator.
According to the forum administrator, security forces have learned Abdel Hakim’s password on March 6th, 2009 and deleted more than three hundred threads posted by the activist and other forum members.
Awesome job, lovely security forces. Yeah, let’s see you smack around and beat up more of these cyber activists. I’m sure you’ll manage to silence all of them pretty easily. And hey, if you can’t, you can just block the entire internet in Sudan, sort of like how China blocked all of Youtube.
