Lawyers Statement on Coup Security Kidnapping, Disappearance of Mohamed Sadek
Lawyers Statement on Coup Security Kidnapping, Disappearance of Mohamed Sadek
Saturday, September 3,2016 16:14
The undersigned condemn, in the strongest terms, the continued escalation by the Interior Ministry and security apparatuses of the oppressive policy that aims to terrorize and intimidate lawyers and defenders of human rights, and to prevent them from doing their duty of support for victims of violations.

Coup security forces kidnapped Mohamed Mahmoud Sadek, lawyer and human rights researcher, on Tuesday evening – August 30, 2016 from Giza governorate train station, where he was arrested and taken to an undisclosed location.

Despite their best endeavors, Sadek's family and lawyers have been unable to locate him until this moment.

Mohamed Sadek is a member of the Aqrab Prison detainees' defense team. Most of his work is in defense of the victims of violations of the security agencies, which is most probably the reason behind his unwarranted arrest and enforced disappearance – until the writing of this statement – without a crime, and in blatant violation of the Constitution, relevant laws and international conventions.

The undersigned affirm that the policies pursued by the Ministry of Interior to arrest, abduct and assault lawyers, and even torture them to death, have become intolerable.

The signatories demand the immediate release, without delay, of Sadek, and fair and prompt trials for all those who issued a warrant for his arrest and forced disappearance.

The undersigned further assert that they will stand with full force against all attempts to terrorize lawyers and human rights defenders – attempts that never stopped since July 3, 2013.

They also affirm that they are determined to persist in their way to seek redress for grievances and to stand against all attempts to violate the law and the Constitution by the Interior Ministry and its various organs.
