HRM has documented the case reported by her mother confirming the family is currently in a state of shock following the injustice their daughter is facing especially as neither the daughter or any family member has no political affiliations.
Fatima an Ismailia resident continues to be missing and her mother who has visited police stations and security headquarters searching for her daughter has been told by officials she is not in their custody despite contrary rumours by sources who confirmed that she is held at the security headquarters. The reason for her arrest is unknown.
The family filed an official complaint number 186/2016 at the Zohoor Port Said Police Station on January 11th which was distributed to police stations nationwide
The family also submitted a complaint to the National Committee for Human Rights online and a written one also to its headquarters on January 14th, 2016 however has received no response.
HRM holds the Egyptian authorities fully responsible for the safety and wellbeing of Fatima who suffers from pneumonia and other respiratory tract, heart and kidney disease.
HRM also calls on authorities to immediately disclose where the student is being held and to allow her to communicate with her lawyer ending the enforced disappearance policy which continues to be practiced daily. The action is a flagrant violation to Article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which cites
no one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile. Article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which asserts everyone has the right to liberty and security of person. No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest or detention. No one shall be deprived of his liberty except on such grounds and in accordance with such procedure as are established by law was also violated.
