Human Rights Monitor has called on the UN Special Rapporteur on torture to intervene and oversee the wretched conditions political detainees face inside Egypt's prisons with regards to systematic catastrophic torturing.
HRM has documented 10 forced abductions from Alexandria in Egypt reporting a week of brutal torture of the detainees before they were brought before military tribunal facing accusations because of their political affiliations.
Ibrahim Alsayed Ibrahim Suleiman 44 is one such victim after he was arrested on March 27th from his home with no warrant by prosecutor for his arrest. His household belongings were destroyed and he was led to an unknown destination making his abduction and enforced disappearance by security personnel a crime against law. He was later brought before a military tribunal in Fleming on April 2nd and later transferred to the security building and again moved to Borg El Arab Prison. His family was prevented from seeing him and was not given any information since April 4 regarding his whereabouts.
Commerce student Ahmed Mahmoud Mohamed Ashosh 19, also faced similar treatment after he was abducted after visiting his friend from Sidi Bishr, Alexandria. His family reported to HRM that no information regarding his location has been offered before he was brought before military tribunal. They learnt later he had been brutally tortured at the Smouha Headquarters and later transferred to the Borg el Arab Prison two days later. However they were denied visiting rights and were unable to visit their son.
Such actions prompt a speedy and serious request for an investigation regarding these crimes with calls for compensation and reparation especially as the torture has resulted in injuries including shoulder pains and continued shaking of the whole body especially as they were denied warm covering. Speech was also blurred following electrocution and he was forced to sleep on the ground without cover. He also suffered incontinence after being electrocuted on sensitive body parts and was unable to urinate because of the brutal torture.
Such actions take place with complete disregard to the humane treatment of victims and their right to just and impartial trials and hearings as they were referred to military court despite being civilians. Furthermore they were brought before court blindfolded without regard to evidence or regard to the fact that they were tortured. This is a complete violation to international conventions regarding the treatment of detainees as the complete opposite took place and innocent civilians were tortured because of their political affiliations and opinions.
