Rights Group: Security Forces in Egypt's Zagazig University Arrest 84 Students
Rights Group: Security Forces in Egypt's Zagazig University Arrest 84 Students
Thursday, October 5,2017 17:20

A human rights source in the Egyptian Coordinating Committee of Rights and Freedoms (ECRF) revealed that the coup regime's security forces launched a mass arrest campaign in which 84 students were randomly stopped at Zagazig University and hauled off to the security forces' camp.

The source disclosed that some students were later released, while some others are still under investigation. 

Osama Bayoumi, head of ECRF's Criminal Justice department, criticized escalation of the authorities' search and arrest crackdown on students without court orders. He stressed that what happened was a message to terrorize both detained and other university students and to deter or stop any political activity by students in the new academic year just starting.

With regard to legal actions, Bayoumi said the detainees' lawyers were waiting for their release or presentation to the prosecution if there were any charges against the students.
