Abdurrahman Talaat Imprisoned For Aiding Prisoners

State Security Prosecution decided last Thursday the continuation of imprisonment for student Abdurrahman Talaat for another 15 days pending investigations.

State security forces moved the student late on Friday October 17th from El Khalifa police station after spending more than six days in prison to El Mahkoum Prison.

Talaat; Pharmacy student, was arrested last Saturday on his visit to his brother Yusuf Talaat who was arrested in the case of Professor Abdurrahman Abdul Bar. Talaat tried to give first aid to one of the detainees; meanwhile one came and photographed the patient inside the hospital. Security arrested Talaat till the camera used for photographing broadcaster Belal for disclosing torture is back. He was referred to prosecution next day for two-day investigations.

He was first accused of violating the patient’s right. Upon investigation, Abdurrahman said he was in the place to give first aid to one of the patients and did not possess any cameras.

After acquittal from such a charge, he was again charged with joining the outlawed Brotherhood as well as organizing with his brother to photograph the tortured patient to hold the police responsible for that. After investigations lasting for more than two days, he was ordered imprisoned for 15 days pending investigations and, thus, kept in El Khalifa police station; which is blatantly against law since should be kept a prison. He has been lately moved last Friday to El Mahkoum prison after the complaint filed by his defense to the prosecutor general.
