Take Action for Human Rights
Reveal what has happened to Ibrahim Ezz El-Din
Ibrahim Ezz El-Din was arrested on 11 June 2019 near his home in Cairo. But the police say they don’t have him, and his family have no information about where he is or what has happened to him. Across Egypt, hundreds of people are being disappeared by the state simply because they or their families oppose or criticise the government.
Ibrahim Ezz El-Din is a 26-year-old human rights researcher who lives in Cairo, Egypt. He loves his job, where he researches and reports on people’s access to safe and affordable housing in Egypt — a basic human right. When not working, Ibrahim loves to draw and is interested in design. He’s a huge football fan, always keeping up with his local team, Zamalek Sporting Club.
Ibrahim is the fifth person linked with his organization, the Egyptian Commission for Rights and Freedoms, to have been arrested in just three years. Hundreds like Ibrahim have been forcibly disappeared before turning out to be held in prison for months, without ever being brought to trial. Many have been arrested simply for expressing their opinions peacefully, criticizing the authorities or standing up for human rights — from journalists to football fans and even politicians.
Take Action: Tell the Public Prosecutor to reveal Ibrahim’s whereabouts and reunite him with his family.
