Preparations for the release of Dr Mahmoud Hussein and Dr Mohamed Kamel due to health conditions
State Security transferred Dr Mahmoud Hussein from the Muslim Brotherhood’s Executive Bureau and Dr Mohamed Kamel from the Brotherhood’s governorate administrative office to their headquarters in Assuit preparing them for their release due to health conditions.
The Brotherhood’s defense team had filed numerous appeals for the release of the detainees however they were ignored. Lawyers challenged other orders where they are currently awaiting decisions. The detainees’ lawyers previously applied for release or the transfer to Almanial University hospital since the prisons were not appropriately equipped to offer the necessary health care needed.
