Security forces ilegally arrested the students Mohammad Raafat and Ahmad Rady,the students at the faculty of engineering, Zagazig University.
What the students had is violating the Egyptian constitution item 54 “Personal freedom is a natural right, shall be protected and may not be infringed upon. Except for
the case of being caught in flagrante delicto, it is not permissible to arrest, search, detain, or
restrict the freedom of anyone in any way except by virtue of a reasoned judicial order that was
required in the context of an investigation.
Every person whose freedom is restricted shall be immediately notified of the reasons therefore;
shall be informed of his/her rights in writing; shall be immediately enabled to contact his/her
relatives and lawyer; and shall be brought before the investigation authority within twenty four
(24) hours as of the time of restricting his/her freedom.
In the observatory, we condemn such violations and demand releasing all students as long as there is no proof against them.
