Egypt: Further information: Unjustly jailed lawyer faces new charges: Hoda Abdelmoniem

On 31 October 2023, human rights lawyer, Hoda Abdelmoniem, was due to be released after serving her unjust five-year prison sentence stemming solely from the exercise of her human rights. Instead, the Supreme State Security Prosecution (SSSP) ordered her pretrial detention pending investigations into similar bogus terrorism-related charges in a separate case No. 730 of 2020.

She must be immediately and unconditionally released.
