The Egyptian authorities have subjected Egyptian-British prominent activist Alaa Abdel Fattah and human rights defender and lawyer Mohamed Baker to a litany of human rights violations since their arrests on 29 September 2019, including arbitrary detention, unfair trial, torture and other ill-treatment, and periodic bans on family visits.

On 20 July, human rights lawyer Mohamed Baker was released after 45 months of arbitrary detention, stemming solely from his peaceful human rights work, following a presidential pardon on 19 July. Mohamed Baker was arrested on 29 September 2019 from the Supreme State Security Prosecution’s office where he went to represent Alaa Abdel Fattah who had been arrested earlier that day.

Egyptian-British prominent activist Alaa Abdel Fattah remains arbitrarily detained in Wadi al-Natrun prison and denied access to consular visits.

Alaa Abdel Fattah should be immediately and unconditionally released as his detention is solely linked to the peaceful exercise of his human rights.

Egyptian-British activist Alaa Abdel were convicted by an emergency court in December 2021 for “spreading false news” and sentenced to five in prison, following a grossly unfair trial.

Alaa Abdel Fattah is a well-known political activist and government critic and has been repeatedly arrested in recent years including for his role in the 2011 uprising.
