Egypt: Open Letter to the Egyptian Public Prosecutor on photojournalist Mahmoud Abd Alshakour Abu Zeid
I am writing to express my deep concern about the hearing scheduled for 12 December at Cairo Criminal Court for Egyptian photojournalist Mahmoud Abd Alshakour Abu Zeid, widely known as Shawkan. He is at risk of life imprisonment on trumped-up charges stemming from his journalistic work. He will stand in a mass trial alongside 738 other defendants.
