One of the most famous political prisoners in Egypt’s crisis, Google executive Wael Ghonim, will be freed Monday, according to his family.

He was presumed arrested by the Mubarak government, but the regime was silent. Finally on Sunday night, according to Ghonim’s brother, Egyptian authorities spoke out. “They told us they’ll probably bring him to us, and that he will likely be escorted by security,” said his brother.
