Abdel Monem Abdel Maksoud, the lawyer, on 23rd of April 2009, said that he submitted 13 appeals before the Administrative Court of the State Council against each of the Minister of Justice, Attorney-General, Minister of Interior and Director of the prison sector requesting urgently the original draft sentence without the declaration of staying the execution of the administration’s decision to refuse the conditional release provided in Article 52 of law No. 396 of 1965.


Newspapers have claimed that continuity of arresting appellants after they completed their determined conditional period of release is considered as a physical and mental abuse. The continuity of their detention is a violation of the Prisons law in its Article 52 which provides that “Release is permitted under conditions for each sentenced person finally restricted with a freedom restricting penalty if he spent three quarters of the sentence and his behavior while in prison giving confidence that he is adjusting himself and if his release won’t threat public security”.


The newspapers stressed that the administration’s refusal to release the appellants does not have legal grounds; however, it’s an abuse of power and authority.


On its part, Sawasya Centre for Human Rights and Countering Anti-Discrimination condemned the continuity of detaining prisoners of conscious belongs to MB who have been tried in military courts after spending three quarters of their sentences, stressing that this is a flagrant violation of the rights of those citizens and the provisions of Egyptian Constitution.
