, Index number: MDE 12/063/2013

Egyptian armed security forces arrested 67-year-old Adly al-Qazzaz at his home in Cairo, at 3 am on 24 October 2013. A State Security Prosecutor is investigating accusations that he belongs to a “banned group”. Amnesty International is concerned that Adly al-Qazzaz, who is in poor health, was arrested because his son is an aide to the deposed president, Mohamed Morsi.
