الحياة …للمعتقلين الأبرياء
Referring to the novel COVID-19 which was recently announced by your Organization as “pandemic”. I refer also to the unhuman circumstances lived by approx.60 000 political prisoners ,as estimated by many Human Rights Organizations , in Egypt.Ironically , what the Egyptian Government decided to take as a preventive measure against the fear of COVID- 19 outbreak is banning the prisoners’ visits !!! , ignoring the unhuman circumstances lived by the prisoners inside their dirty non equipped prisons , the crowded prisons where the space specified for each prisoner in some places is less than 1m2 and no hygiene kits whatsoever are available in these dirty prisons except what families bring to their imprisoned relatives during their visits.Besides , no health care whatsoever is given to any prisoner even to those who suffer serious, chronic or infectious diseases .Based on this we , the families of 60000 political prisoners in pre- trial detention , beg your esteemed Organization to put pressure on the Government of Egypt to free all prisoners who are at real risk .we beg your esteemed Organization to put pressure on Egypt to behave as a responsible Government towards its 60 000 imprisoned citizens and free them , since it is incapable of protecting them , as Iran did with 134 000 prisoners.
