Health deterioration of the detained Egyptian journalist Amer Abdel Moneim

The Egyptian Coordination for Rights and Freedoms has warned the prison administration for the continued neglect of the Egyptian journalist’s health, Amer Abdel Moneim. His health deterioration is as a result of his eyes infection; which may lead to the risk of losing his eyesight if the neglect continues; according to a statement issued by the Coordination Committee today.

In the statement, the Coordination Committee confirmed that the prison administration refused to transfer Abdel Moneim to the hospital; or even to be examined or operated by a specialized doctor outside the prison.
In fact, the Egyptian security forces arrested Abdel Moneim at his home in Giza on the 19th of December; because of his articles that included criticism of the policies of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.

Also, the Supreme State Security Prosecution in Egypt issued a decision to arrest journalist Amer Abdel Moneim pending investigation in the case number (1017). They charged Abdel Moneim with spreading false news and participating in a terrorist group in achieving its goals.
