Egyptian Economist Dies Under Suspicious Circumstances After Forcible Disappearance

HeadlineApr 12, 2022

In news from Egypt, an economic researcher has died in custody after being forcibly disappeared in February. Ayman Hadhoud died in early March, but his family only learned of his death this weekend when they were asked to collect his body from a psychiatric hospital in Cairo. Hadhoud helped found the liberal Reform and Development Party in Egypt. On Monday, Hadhoud’s brother was summoned for questioning.

Meanwhile, the imprisoned Egyptian activist Alaa Abd El-Fattah has become a British citizen in a bid to increase pressure on authorities to release him. The prominent human rights activist has spent most of the past decade locked up.
