Egypt: Further information: Jailed son of politician denied family visits: Anas al-Beltagy

Anas al-Beltagy, who has been denied any contact with his family for six years, continues to be barred from prison visits, following his transfer from the Badr 1 Prison to the 10th of Ramadan prison in Sharqia governorate on 8 June. He has been arbitrarily detained for over nine years, despite being acquitted by courts in four separate trials. Concerns over his health mounted after he appeared weak during a detention renewal hearing held via videoconference on 17 July. He must be immediately and unconditionally released as his detention is solely due to his family links.
