Essam Atta : The latest victim of torture in Egypt "Graphic"
Essam Atta , a 23 years old man from Egypt whom I do not know what he did on February 25th ,2011 but he was arrested by military police and faced a military trial he should not face. Atta was sentenced two years in jail where he was spending at the Tora prison "following the ministry of interior and civilian police" The No for military trials' lawyers were working on appealing the military court so soon.
From couple of hours ago human rights activists knew that Essam Atta died and his body was at the Kasr Al Aini hospital , later they knew from his family as well from other inmates that Atta was tortured till by policemen in jail for smuggling a SIM card for his mobile phone. He was sodomized with water pipes. Lawyer Malek Adly who saw the body at the Kasr Al Aini's morgue said that there were no bruises but he was leaking water !!
It seems that after knowing that they killed Atta , the officers took his body and left it at Kasr Al Aini hospital where there was no official report for the admission.
Side Mark : former speaker of Egyptian parliament Fathi Sorror smuggled a mobile phone to his cell in Tora prison last month and he was not tortured till death.
Lawyer and human right activist Malek Adly stated that Misr El Kadima police station filed a report to the public prosecutor office which ordered an immediate autopsy at Zanihom for the suspension in death cause. Tomorrow insh Allah there will be autopsy.
Even if we do not have SCAF , we got a police mentality corrupted and sick enough to make our life like hell if we do no take the correct decision and stand. The police force should be disbanded , we got unemployed youth enough to fill in.
Torture in Egyptian jails is not the product of SCAF rule or Mubarak rule , it is the product of decades yet it will be not hard to stop it , not only to limit it but to stop it.
Essam is not the first but insh Allah we should try to make him the last to die from torture.
Essam sent this message to No for military trials on October 7,2011
I am Essam Ali Atta , I was imprisoned because my family is poor but God will not leave me like that because God is mighty and he is merciful on me than all human.
Here is extreme emotional and graphic video showing Essam's mom after seeing her son's body.
Essam Atta's brother Mohamed was optimistic on Thursday's morning that his brother was going to be acquitted and released !!
Activists are calling the people to gather at Zanihom morgue at 10 AM to show the government that Atta's family got support despite they are poor.
According to the ER doctor at Kasr Al Aini hospital Dr. Inas , the doctors tried to save Essam when he was brought to the hospital but he was already dead. She added that those who brought him "allegedly a police officer" told her that he was taken some pills.
Here is another video from the morgue :(
Here is a Facebook page in solidarity with Essam Atta : We are all Essam Atta
I am extremely worried from the Tahrir's protest.
