The Supreme State Security Prosecution renewed the detention of researcher Ahmed Samir Santawy, today, for 15 days, in a paper procedure, and without the presence of Santawy from his detention in  Liman Tora Prison.

It is noteworthy that since March 2020, the Supreme State Security Prosecution has been renewing the detention of the defendants without their presence from their detention places or enabling them to contact their lawyers.

ِAFTE calls upon the Public Prosecutor, Hamada El-Sawy, to issue a decision to release the researcher Ahmed Samir so that he can continue his studies at the Central European University (CEU) in Austria.
