The family of an Egyptian detainee launched a distress call to all who can work to stop the violations committed against their son.
The family of the prisoner of conscience, “Ali Hassan Ali Hassan”, known as “Alaa Hudeeb”, said that he was arrested arbitrarily and illegally on September 6, 2020.
He was arrested while going home from his workplace at Akyad Secondary School in Faqous Center, Sharkia Governorate.
They added that their son was subjected to enforced disappearance for nine days, before he appeared before Faqous Prosecution with fabricated charges, pointing out that “his detention is being renewed, and he is kept in a poor detention contrition that affects his health at Faqous Police Station.”
The family expressed their deep concern about their son’s health, as he suffers from diabetes and has had a disability in one of his feet since childhood, in addition to having performed many surgeries.
The conditions of detention to which “Alaa Hudeeb” is subjected is a form of slow killing, “especially after the deterioration of his health condition in prison, which does not meet the minimum safety standards for human health.”
The family appealed to “everyone to intervene and end his suffering by releasing him immediately in order to continue taking care of his family and six children who were deprived of him for the second time,” noting that “he was arrested in 2014 and 2015 and acquitted by the military court of the fabricated charges raised against him.
Prisoners of conscience suffer from medical neglect in Egyptian detention facilities, which lack international standards for places of detention suitable for humans, according to a statement by Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK, which pointed to the large overcrowding in cells where detainees suffer from malnutrition, lack of hygiene and the spread of insects and pollution and lack of ventilation and lighting.
