1'000 days in arbitrary detention


Saturday 25 June marked 1'000 days that prisoners of conscience Alaa Abdel Fattah and Mohamed Baker have  been held in arbitrary detention. We issued a press to mark the anniversary

Alaa Abdel Fattah is still on hunger strike and since visiting him on 12 June, his sister Mona Seif  has joined him on the strike, standing in solidarity with her brother. She reported how drastic Alaa Abdel Fattah’s weight loss was and how fragile he seemed. On 9 June, his lawyer posted on Facebook that he had been denied access to Alaa Abdel Fattah, despite having official permission to visit him.

Meanwhile, on 21 June, British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, publicly vowed to intervene to help free Alaa, who is a British national, stating that the British authorities are «working very hard to secure his release», and said she would raise his case during the upcoming visit of Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry.
