Court overturns transfer decree of Mahalla labour blogger

Kareem el-Beheiry  reports on his blog that a court in Mahalla has overturned the transfer decree issued against him by the manager of Misr Spinning and Weaving in Mahalla after a anti-privatization protest at the factory in October 2008 - just like it did months ago with the transfers of several labour activists in the factory (as far as I know these court verdicts has not been implemented, however). Lawyers describe this decision as an important victory as they are also fighting to get Kareem reinstated at work after he was fired in May... (Btw, here are some pics taken by Kareem at the Tanta Flax and Oils strike a few days ago.)
