A member of the defense committee for detainees in Sharqia revealed that 3 detainees were recycled after obtaining their acquittal in the false accusations and allegations, as they were not released and were presented to the Public Prosecution Office in the Tenth of Ramadan City, and decided to imprison them for 15 days as usual. They are: Abd Al-Shawadfi, Sheikh of the Azhari Institute, Youssef Shaaban, and Ahmed Abdel-Hakam.
The “rotation of detainees” is a new phenomenon and one of the worst means of abuse of the detainee so that he remains in the cycle of pre-trial detention on various charges, so that the political prisoner becomes in open detention as soon as he is arrested, and the pre-trial detention turns from mere temporary and precautionary measures limited in time to a tool of punishment and liquidation of political opponents.
Demands for a moratorium on the politicized executions of exceptional trials that do not provide guarantees of fair trial and respect for the human right to life have also continued.
The “Their Right” campaign in solidarity with the detainees and the forcibly disappeared issued a videograph that monitors the most prominent sentences that exceeded 3,000 rulings during the period from 2014 to 2020, and implemented 179 of them, ignoring all calls that stress the need for implementation.
mass torture campaigns
The Egyptian Network for Human Rights documented that a number of members of the National Security Forces in the Central Security Camp in Kafr El-Sheikh carried out mass torture campaigns over the past week, including beatings, verbal humiliation, and bans from exercising, as well as stripping detainees of their clothes and personal tools over an entire week.
The detainees’ families confirmed the continuation of the series of abuse of the detainees without observing the minimum human rights standards.
It is noteworthy that the security forces camp in Kafr El-Sheikh is considered a secret detention center for holding dozens of forcibly disappeared people from the Kafr El-Sheikh governorate, and there are hundreds of detainees who are being held in pretrial detention.
The “Network” had monitored grave violations against detainees in the Central Security Forces centers at the level of the Republic and their use as unofficial detention centers, including:
Security Forces Camp in Maghem, Alexandria.
The security forces camp in Al-Jabal Al-Ahmar in Cairo, which was one of the largest camps that were used to detain detained protesters from Cairo Governorate.
Security forces camp in Giza before being converted to a central prison.
El Shallal camp in Aswan.
Security Forces Camp in Beni Suef.
Release the prisoners!
In conjunction with the eighth anniversary of the July 2013 coup, the “Women Against the Coup” movement renewed its demand for the immediate release of all female detainees. It also appealed to relief and international organizations to save Egypt’s women and girls from death inside the prisons of the coup regime in Egypt, which violated women’s rights in an unprecedented manner.
The movement, through a statement issued by it, condemned the continuation of violations and military repression against Egyptian women, including arrests, enforced disappearances and family displacement.
She said: “Women in Egypt still suffer from arrests and enforced disappearances, as they are the martyr, the mother of the martyr and the wife of the martyr.
The movement added that there are more than 154 female detainees in prisons who are exposed daily to slow death due to diseases as a result of imprisonment and torture, and there are elderly women who have been sentenced to life imprisonment, including Samia who is the oldest detainee facing death in her cell, and there are girls who were sentenced to 18 years in prison on flimsy charges.
Meanwhile, the “Nadim Center for Victims of Torture” monitored in the Al-Qahr archives for the month of June 2021, a number of violations amounting to 134 violations, including the death of 9 detainees inside prisons and detention centers and 10 cases of medical negligence in inhumane detention conditions that contradict the lowest human rights standards.
The center also monitored 51 cases of enforced disappearance and 50 cases of individual disturbance, in addition to 2 cases of collective harassment, the first of them in Shebin al-Koum General Prison in Menoufia Governorate and the second inside Belbeis Police Station prison in Sharqia.
It also monitored 12 cases of violence perpetrated by the state against citizens in contravention of the lowest standards of human rights.
