Egyptian Security forces have been launching “summer crackdown against many Muslim Brotherhood (MB) youth. A month ago, about 45 members were arrested in a summer resort. On July 21, 2007, 22 others were arrested in Marsa Matrouh.
 
The latest campaign moved a step further than mere detention. Three young men, Mohamed Ali Said, Mohamed Imam, and Mostafa Imam, have disappeared after their detention. The Egyptian government denies arresting them or knowing their place.
 
Khalaf Bayoumi, the lawyer for the detainees’ case, told ikhwanweb:
 “We staged a vigil last week to demand information about the place of these kidnapped students. More than 20 persons were detained on July, 15, 2007 without any real charges, including the 3 who are currently missing or are forced to be missing.”
 
“Relatives of the detainees submitted a complaint about the disappearance of their loved ones. We submitted an official memo to Attorney General and the Bar Association chief in Alexandria, and many others. However, we still have no information about the kidnapped students.”
 
Our latest official memo was sent on Saturday, July, 15, 2007 to the Human Rights National Council.”
 
“Unfortunately, all these reports and procedures were taken in order to have a thorough investigation into the kidnapping. Yet, the three are still missing.”
 
There are many indications that at least one of these kidnapped students has died of torture and abuse.
 
Another possibility is that government hides the students so that marks of tortures on bodies of the students may heal in order to avoid any scandal due to these tortures.
 
Mr. Ali, the father of one of the kidnapped students, spoke about the last moments before his son’s detention. He said:" Mohamed phoned me at 9.15 and said he would take a microbus to reach home in minutes. Minutes later, one of his friends phoned me to tell me that the Egyptian security forces arrested my son.”
 
 
“I rushed to the Security forces center where they denied knowing anything about my son.”
 
 “The day after, Security forces raided my house 1.30AM, and searched my son’s room, seized his PC. However, when I went again to the Security forces the day after, they again denied knowing any information about my son.”
 
Mr. Ali said, “We’ve sent telegrams to the Highest Council of Human Rights, the attorney general, the Bar Association chief in Alexandria, and many others. I sent 3 telegrams to the attorney general, but there was no reply.”
 
 There is no logical reason for arresting my son. They have arrested him likely because he’s a good Muslim youth, a religious well-bred young man who has good morals.”
 
“If he had been a rapist, a thief, or a criminal, they would have never done this with him.”
 
Mohamed"s father said, “I still can’t expect anything right now. I don’t have any information about his location, or what happened to him.
 
Asked what message he wants to send to authorities, he said: “My message is to the Interior Minister. I want to ask him: “Where is my son?! He is kidnapped for about 15 days, and I haven’t found him till now, or even knew any information about him.”
 
 “My second message is to Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak: My son is missing. Where is my son. Please reply to my question, Mr. President”.
 
Asked about the family after Mohamed’s detention, he said:“ His mother has had an eye surgery. Immediately after the Security forces raided our house, her condition got worse and she suffered from an internal bleeding, and was moved to hospital. She is still there.”
