President Morsi Supporters Death in Junta Jails Continues Unabated
President Morsi Supporters Death in Junta Jails Continues Unabated
Dozens die every day due to deliberate criminal negligence in the military regime's prisons all over Egypt.

On Monday, a junta prison in Suez (north-east of Egypt) witnessed the death of Mahmoud Mohamed Mahdi, one of the supporters of the legitimate President Mohamed Morsi (currently held captive in military junta jails himself).

In a statement, the Suez Prisoners Families Association (SPFA) denounced the death of the prisoner Mahdi, and held military coup authorities fully responsible for it.

The statement said: "Mahdi" was released a few months ago, and forced to pay a fine of LE10,000 (US$1,350). Then, junta authorities re-arrested him immediately, even before he actually got released, and detained him yet again, just to force his son Ahmed (supposedly wanted by the junta) to give himself up. Ahmed was not in Suez.

"In junta prisons, Mahdi developed angina, diabetes, high blood pressure, and a suspected stroke, because of the severe overcrowding in the cells, and lack of medical care inside the prison. After severe suffering, Mahdi went into a coma, and only then was transferred to the Suez General Hospital.

"Doctors at the hospital's intensive care department decided to keep Mahdi in hospital for treatment, since he was in a very poor condition; but the state security apparatus stubbornly refused, and took him directly to the notorious Ataka Prison (nicknamed "Ataka Cemetery"), where he experienced an acute heart attack two days later. Once again, Mahdi was transferred to the hospital, where he died only two days later.

SPFA holds all coup authorities fully responsible for the long suffering of prisoners – the genocide and slow death of detainees in junta prisons.
