Ramzy Razeek, a retired government official and social media commentator, has been detained since 9 April 2020 without charge, or proper access to lawyer. Because he suffers from several medical complications, his family is worried about his health conditions in the overcrowded and unhygienic prison facilities. Ramzy Razeek must be immediately and unconditionally released, and all charges against him dropped, as he has been detained only for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression.
Aside from the unwarranted and arbitrary detention of Ramzy Razeek simply for exercising his right to peacefully express himself on Facebook is the fact that Ramzy’s family have not been allowed to communicate with him since the arrest. His health complications include arthritis, kidney failure, liver problems and vascutic leg ulcers. It is critical that he receives adequate access to healthcare.
