Alaa Abdel Fattah
Egypt’s Public Prosecution said, Thursday that the investigations it conducted regarding the imprisoned activist Alaa Abdel Fattah confirmed that he was no subjected to any kind of physical torture, and that his body doesn’t has any marks of any kind that indicates otherwise.
In a statement, the ministry said it approved the request of the National Council for Human Rights (NCHR) to move Abdel Fattah to Wadi Al-Natroun Correctional and Rehabilitation Center.
The source added that the inmate, who is a Egyptian-UK citizen, also gets food from the center's canteen.
