Alert: Egypt – Daughter of Khairat al-Shater appeals for his immediate release

In a recently published article, Zahra al-Shater, daughter of Khairat al-Shater, spoke of her great sorrow at her father’s condition and the injustice he has suffered at the hands of the Egyptian government. Zahra has called for the immediate release of her father’s unfair detention.

“Four years have passed and here I am writing with mixed feelings including honour and pride. My father's patience and sacrifice illustrate his faith in his sublime goals in which he lived to accomplish where he is now paying the price….His absence causes us much suffering, and wrenches my family's heart. We are now into the fourth anniversary of these unfair provisions. All in all he has spent an overwhelming ten years in prison…”

“It is evident that the judiciary is politically motivated with the military tribunal referrals despite civilian court acquittals. These measures contradict and violate the Egyptian constitution and are breaches to human rights.”

“Al-Shater holds no grudges and has and always will follow his path for freedom and human rights for the well being of Egypt and his fellow countrymen regardless of the sacrifices and hardships.  He has full faith in Allah the Almighty.”
