EOHR calls for an immediate release of the detained Egyptians in Qatar

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) expresses its deep condemnation of the detention of the Egyptians by the Qatari authorities,” Ali Mohamed Salem and Walid Abdel Aziz” for seven months. They have been forcibly disappeared since the date of their arrest without any charges against them and also without informing their families with any details, and not allowing them to communicate with them.


 The organization calls upon the Qatari authorities to announce the place of their detention, ensure contact with their families and release them quickly.
The Qatari authorities have arrested two Egyptians, Ali Mohamed Salem and Walid Abdul Aziz, who worked for the TV channel Bein Sport for seven months without announcing the reason of their arrest or the charges against them, in addition to not announcing the place of their detention.
In this regard, the organization stresses on the need to protect the Egyptian citizens at home and abroad as well as providing them with the necessary security and care. The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs ought to take its responsibilities and act urgently in order to return the Egyptians held in the Qatari territory.
The organization also calls for monitoring the situation of the detained Egyptians, finding out where they are being held, providing the necessary care for them, and ensuring that they are tried fairly and justly.
For his part, Dr Hafez Abu Saeda confirmed that this incident constitutes a flagrant violation of international human rights standards, especially the right to liberty and security of every person in his or her country, especially the provisions of article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that states “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile”
