Victims of deliberate health negligence in Egyptian prisons continue to rise, especially among prisoners of conscience, and the last of which is Khaled Abdel Hamid Morsi.
Morsi, 63, died only a week after his arbitrary arrest and forced disappearance since August 8, 2022.
The Egyptian authorities had detained him in Montazah 2 Police Station in Alexandria, in case No. 3004 of 2022, and he died as a result of overcrowding and denying him the right to receive his medicines from his family.
At a very late stage of his health, the police administration ordered his transfer to Abu Qir Hospital, where he died.
In August only 4 detainees have died in Egyptian prisons, and 28 since the beginning of this year.
In July, 7 detainees died under torture and medical negligence, in addition to dozens of political detainees since the beginning of 2022, and hundreds of arbitrary detainees since the coup of July 3, 2013.
The numbers of deaths inside Egyptian prisons is always increasing and the Egyptian authorities prevent the Red Cross Committee from inspecting prisoners conditions, thus leaving prisons without any control, except for the Public Prosecution, which became a partner in covering up for torture crimes and protecting perpetrators.
