Human Rights Reports: Enforced Disappearance, Arrests of Women in October Escalates to Reach 46

Rights group Egyptian Coordinating Committee of Rights and Freedoms' (ECRF)'s latest statistics on women detained in Egyptian prisons revealed an increase in the number of girls and women arbitrarily detained and sentenced to prison terms on politically-motivated charges, to reach 46 detainees in October 2017.

Human rights activist Hoda Abdel-Moneim pointed to the escalating arrests of women and how authorities hold them hostages to force their relatives to surrender to security apparatuses – a new and abhorrent phenomenon that must be stopped immediately. She urged human rights activists and organizations to help stop this atrocious crime committed repeatedly by junta regime authorities against Egyptian women.

On the Egyptian authorities' policy of enforced disappearance of girls, Ahmed Abu-Zeid, researcher at the Arab Media Freedom Monitor, said the high rate of enforced disappearance of girls is a new crime committed vindictively by the coup regime.

"This calls for a unified human rights movement to put pressure on Egyptian regime authorities to stop this systematic crime, which is a blatant violation of legal principles recognized by the Constitution and the law."

ECRF's list of female detainees included:
