According to Ismail's mother her son was arrested from an apartment in Alexandria by security forces who threatened his friend detainee Ahmed Ghoneim that they would rape his wife and family if he did not inform them of Ismail's whereabouts. Ghoneim was pressured and informed them leading to his abduction on February 25th 2015.
The action is a violation to Article 11 of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment which asserts
each State Party shall keep under systematic review interrogation rules, instructions, methods and practices as well as arrangements for the custody and treatment of persons subjected to any form of arrest, detention or imprisonment in any territory under its jurisdiction, with a view to preventing any cases of torture.
On these grounds HRM calls on the Egyptian authorities to respect Article 12 which reads each State Party shall ensure that its competent authorities proceed to a prompt and impartial investigation, wherever there is reasonable ground to believe that an act of torture has been committed in any territory under its jurisdiction. His mother added to HRM Ismail a technician is a father of 2 whose whereabouts remains unknown despite complaints submitted to the prosecutor, attorney general and the Justice Minister in Alexandria North Egypt.
HRM calls on the Egyptian authorities to disclose where the detainee is being held and calls for his release with legal protection as stipulated in the international covenants and agreements ratified by Egypt.
