Amnesty International post to Egypt

11 September, 2015

Public Prosecutor,  Hesham Mohamed Zaki Barakat,

Office of the Public Prosecutor,  Supreme Court House

1 ’26 July’ Road,  Cairo

Arab Republic of Egypt

Dear Counsellor:

I call for the immediate and unconditional release of Mahmoud Abu Zied. All charges should be dropped as they are completely unfounded. Mr. Zied was peacefully acting as a photo journalist at the time of his arrest in August of 2013 when Egyptian security forces used excessive and lethal force to disperse a sit-in in Cairo.

Mr. Zied is a prisoner of conscience as described by Amnesty International.
