Mohamed Eljahmi writes with an update on his brother Fathi, the Libyan dissident imprisoned for speaking out in favor of democracy. This is the first contact the family has had in some time:
Fathi was visited yesterday by his oldest son and three of his daughters. The visit was an hour long and restricted to personal topics. It has raised Fathi's morale, "Now that I saw you all, I feel at peace."
According to Fathi "They are saying that I am mentally sick and are exerting stress via isolation. They want to pacify me but I am sticking to principles." He has not taken medications in over a week. The excuse is the person who gives him medication is traveling and there is no medication available to dispense.
He is allowed access only to Libyan TV and news. The Quran is the only book he is allowed to have. He feels it is possible the Libyan regime would strip him off of his citizenship and kick him out of the country.
