Egypt Women Rights Group Condemns Arrest of Girls; Demand Release of Female Detainees

The Sisi regime continues its criminal policies against the women of Egypt. On October 17, 2017, an armed force stormed the house of newly-wed Somaya Hazema in Beheira governorate and arrested her and her mother Sahar Al-Sharif. They were taken to an unknown destination. The mother was released and appeared later, while Somaya remains in custody, subjected to enforced disappearance. The place of her detention is not known until now.
Rights group "Women Against the Coup" wonders just how long will the Sisi regime continue to violate the sanctity of homes, arrest girls in the middle of the night, thrust their names in sham cases and subject them to forced disappearance for months and even years in the junta's dark dungeons?
The group calls on all human rights activists, women's and human rights organizations to move quickly to rescue Egyptian girls from the claws of the military junta and their vicious militias.
