A new chapter of brutality against the Egyptian people is opened by the ruthless state security apparatus; Hisham Fahim, a state security officer, in Abshway, governorate of Al Fayyum, beat and tortured Mahmoud Ahmed Garhy after kidnapping him while he was visiting his newly married daughter.

Detectives Mahmoud Abdul Salam and Ashraf kidnapped him and took him blindfolded to the state security building in Abshway where he was brutally beaten on his face and kicked on his head till he fainted. When regained consciousness, he was beaten and tortured again in order to confess that he participated in a vigil staged by Hassan Youssef, MP for Abshway, and Youssef Al-Siddiq in solidarity with the victims of the Israeli massacre in Beit Hanoun.

Mr. Garhy, who is 54 year old and a father of six, was held for several hour in a solitary confinement and was subjected to periodic beating and threatened by imprisonment if he denies his participation in the vigil. He was eventually released on Sunday evening 26/11/2006, after he was tortured continuously for more than 6 hours and last round of slappings and spitting on his face by officer Hisham Fahim.

Mr. Garhy filed a complaint of his torture in Abshway prosecution. He was later examined by Abshway public hospital where a medical report confirmed that there are signs of torture in the neck and the back.

The state security apparatus exercised pressures on the hospital to falsify the medical report denying the presence of any torture. Mr. Garhy then demanded the prosecution to make a forensic pathologist examine him to document the injuries that he sustained.
