Thoughts on this passage?

"A file for Isra’a Abdel Fattah, once dubbed Facebook Girl for her online activism, contained 10 pages of documents detailing three years of wiretaps and hacked e-mail, including some focused on her divorce.

The secret police printed out all the e-mail regarding her work for the political campaign of Mohamed ElBaradei, the opposition politician who was previously head of theInternational Atomic Energy Agency. They had a list of every company to which Ms. Abdel Fattah had sent a résumé when applying for a job. One note in the margin, documenting her participation in an American democracy seminar via Skype, suggested that state security cut off her Internet access."
