The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI) said today in a statement that Kareem Amer has now completed his second year in prison, and his lawyers from ANHRI and Hisham Mubarak Law Center are still waiting the result of an appeal brought before Egypt’s Prosecutor General. Amir’s lawyers hope to see justice done through this appeal and bring an end to his unjustified imprisonment.

Kareem Amir has suffered many violations against his human rights during interrogations. The evidence he presented in his own defense has been ignored as has his request that his lawyers should be present at his interrogation. He was originally sentenced to four years imprisonment, half of which he has already served, and he still maintains his innocence.

Kareem has delivered a message saying how he is feeling at the moment: " I dream of leaving the prison…but I will never let anybody bargain away my freedom and destiny, even if I am forced to spend my whole life in prison, freedom of my thoughts and my writing are much more valuable to me and I will never bargain them away, whatever the price”. (http://karim.katib.org/node/10)

Gamal Eid, executive director of the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information, who is now visiting Kareem in Borg Al Arab prison in Alexandria said:

"ANHRI denounces the continuing injustice brought about by delaying the appeal which was presented to the court sixteen months ago. These procedures should not take more than six months. ANHRI call on the public prosecutor to consider the appeal immediately and investigate allegations concerning the torture of Kareem at Borg Al Arab prison"
