Ayman Abdel-Ghani, Freedom and Justice Party leader, said his brother, Mohamed Abdel-Ghani, former head of the Muslim Brotherhood's political office, is suffering a rapidly deteriorating health condition, affirming that Mohamed's life is in danger.

In a statement on this matter, Ayman pointed that the Interior Ministry and the Zagazig Prison management still refuse to grant Mohamed a compassionate released on health grounds; and also refuse to transfer him to a hospital to receive urgent treatment.

Ayman further said his brother Mohamed is suffering from weakness of the heart muscle (down to only 20% efficiency now), in addition to a herniated disc, and weight loss (currently, he is less than 50kg), and infiltration in the lung as a result of the weakness of the heart and reduced kidney function.

Warning of the threat to his brother's life, Ayman went on to say – in his statement: "Mohamed is a case for an intensive care unit, but is placed in murderous dungeons and chambers of slow death – not even detention centers or prison cells".

Separately, in a statement on Friday, the Arab Organization for Human Rights in Britain, criticized the situation where Mohamed Abdel-Ghani's health was ignored by the prison administration until it deteriorated sharply in detention. The organization demanded Mohamed's release on health grounds, and that deliberate medical negligence against him must stop.

Since the military coup that illegally ousted President Mohamed Morsi in July 3, 2013, Egypt has been witnessing a persistent wave of mass arrests that doubled the number of political prisoners in state jails. There are more than forty-thousand political prisoners pending political lawsuits. Hundreds of the these detainees have already died in prison as a result of methodical medical negligence, the most prominent of whom were former Muslim Brotherhood officials, Farid Ismail.
