Egypt Detainees Plea Protests Administration Violations, Atrocities
Egypt Detainees Plea Protests Administration Violations, Atrocities
In addition to the fact that they are innocent citizens unjustly jailed for their political views, Wadi Natrun Prison inmates are regularly attacked and brutally beaten and deprived of essential medical treatments.

 Wadi Natron Prison detainees released a number of pleas and open letters protesting the ill-treatment they are suffering in jail, with some getting beaten and brutally abused. Under the title Call to Humanity, the detainees appealed to all the media and human rights organizations to report and help stop the systematic violations against them.

The main plea text was as follows:

Call to humanity and all those interested in or working for human rights, combating abuses against political prisoners and persecution in Egyptian prisons...

We, the detainees in Wadi Natrun Prison Complex - Block 430, call upon all the media and all human rights organizations to uncover the truth about what is really going on inside this prison. The administration and wardens systematically use various means and methods to abuse, punish and violate the rights of political prisoners, including:

1. Confinement inside cells, no physical exercise, ferocious inspections of cells – by prison officers led by Major Mohamed Sobhi, Mohamed Gharbaoui and Mohamed Yunis. Any cell where a detainee demands his rights incurs a collective punishment: complete lock-up, no exercise, violent attacks under the pretext of inspection, illegal removal of personal belongings including clothes, and generally abusing and torturing detainees psychologically and physically.

2. Overcrowding each cell with far too many inmates. It is not unusual to find 30 detainees in cells originally intended for only 14 prisoners. Detainees cannot find sufficient room to sleep or pray. More importantly, they often cannot even breathe. Hence, life is often impossible inside these.

3. Medical neglect, especially for inmates who suffer chronic or dangerous diseases. Those are prevented from getting necessary treatment. Moreover, detainees are badly mistreated at the prison hospital by both officers and doctors – who deal with prisoners in a brutal inhuman way, completely ignoring patients who really need surgical operations or medicines etc.
