A surprising turnover happened last Thursday in Ayman Noor's forgery case. One of the witnesses, Ayman Ismail, confessed that he was coerced into saying that Ayman Noor forged "power of attorney" documents for his party. Ismail said that "members of the security apparatus threatened him that his family might be harmed if he didn't confess against Noor". The court will resume hearings next Wednesday.
This is getting very interesting. I believe Ayman Noor will be acquitted at the end.
