In Egypt with impunity, abducting people
"Officially you don't exist." The title of the new report is alarming, published by Amnesty International allegations of human rights violations occurring in Egypt.

Activists say that people are in prison without access to family or lawyer, as well as communication with the outside world, without formal charges or trial. They call it "enforced disappearance". In 2016 disappeared already 630 people in 5 months, says Amnesty. This is an average of 4 to 5 people each day, starting in 2015.

The report's 71-page, which describes the horrific stories of torture carried out by state agents. Some victims were subjected to torture by electric shocks, blindfolded, beatings, and sexual abuse, including rape. Some of them are children, according to the report.

The Treaty covers crimes of this nature, the International Convention on the protection of all persons from enforced disappearance, defines a victim of this behavior as someone who is deprived of his liberty or by arrest or abduction, authorized agents of the state. The disappearance can be hidden, and the government can refuse to recognize the whereabouts of the victim, placing the victim outside the protection of the law.

Wsale CNN interview sister of 14-year-old Mohammed Asher, who was a victim of enforced disappearance. She claimed that the boy was kidnapped and suffered irreversible physical and mental suffering.

"He had a severe electric shock wounds on the lips, head, arms and chest," said his sister. "They did not spare him, despite that he is only 14. Criminals hung him by his wrists so that he hung in for the whole day."

Asher was initially taken away by officers for questioning for a few hours. His family told Amnesty that they had no contact with the boy for 34 days.

Enforced disappearances are illegal in Egypt and the Egyptian government says that in all cases, the attackers brought to justice. Authorities must transfer detainees to the public Prosecutor's office within 24 hours from the moment of detention.

"Enforced disappearances are not a new phenomenon for Egypt, but it has increased dramatically in the last couple of years," said Mohamed lotfy, Executive Director of the Egyptian Commission for rights and freedom.

"We believe that the Egyptian government is committing a crime of enforced disappearance for two reasons. First, to be able to get a confession under torture from those people that were kept secret, and second, to use extinction as a tool to spread fear among society."
