Alert: Egypt – Two MB students remain in detention despite court’s decision

The Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) has received reports about two students from the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) who were arrested by the security forces on the 4th of November 2009. They were charged with assaulting a University Guard, which they deny.

On the 5th November 2009 they were sent to Al-Mansoura Police Department, but a release order from the court was issued two days later.However, the State Security Prosecution disregarded the court decision and a new arrest warrant was issued on 9th November 2009.Thereupon they were immediately transferred to Wadi-Al-Natron prison.

There has been no further review by the State Security Prosecution.

The students are: 20 year old Khaled Abdel Wahhab Mohamed Ali-El-Din from Abu Ali in Gharbeya governorate and 21 year old Abdel Fattah Othman Omar Zaher from Sandoub-Daqahleya governorate, both of whom are students at Al Azhar University.

The students were believed to be arrested due to their political activities on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.
