Hossam el-Hamalawy, a prominent journalist/activist/photographer, has been ordered to appear before military prosecutors on Tuesday, May 31, 2011 at 10:30 am Cairo time. This occurred after an ONTv interview, where he spoke against military trials for civilians, spoke against violence perpetuated by the military police against activists/civilians and held the head of the military police responsible for these reported violations. The television station's well known host of the program, Reem Maged, was also summoned for questioning.
Ottawa's CBC radio conducted an interview with Hossam in regard to this summons tonight (May 30, 2011). A link to the full interview can be found below.
Update: May 31, 2011
