After many contradictory news on Sherif Gaber’s release appearing since two days, we are happy to announce that he was released yesterday. The news was confirmed by a reliable source of information. We congratulate Sherif Gabor and all those who contributed to his liberation. His case demonstrates one more time that the public defense of atheist activists is essential and can prove successful. Thus we continue to urge European and international political bodies to undertake necessary measures to guarantee freedom of conscience and to stop persecutions of atheists worldwide.
