PRESS RELEASE: End arbitrary detention
On Feb. 9, 2015 at least 50 refugees detained at Karmooz police station in Alexandria, began an open hunger strike to protest against their arbitrary detention. The refugees have been kept in continuous detention after receiving a deportation order by Egypt's Homeland Security agency, despite an earlier order by the Public Prosecutor to release them. The lives of the hunger strikers will be put at grave risk if the Egyptian authorities continue to arbitrarily detain them.
