Abdul Hamid was later transferred to Kafr El-Sheikh Police Department and was illegally detained in the deportation section from January 20th to February, 26th, 2010.
He was tortured for five consecutive days and ordered to sign a confession stating that he is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and to provide information in this regards.
Kafr El-Sheikh State Security Investigations (SSI) issued an arrest warrant and on February 16th, 2010 he was transferred to Wadi El-Natron prison.
Mr. Abdel Hamid Saleh has been arbitrarily detained for over a month similar to hundreds of political detainees accused of affiliating with the MB movement
