National security prosecution denies appeal for release of ‘t-shirt detainee'
Published in Daily News Egypt on 29 - 02 - 2016

The National Security prosecution denied lawyers of detained youngster Mahmoud Mohamed Hussein the chance to appeal against renewing his detention, according to a defence lawyer.
The detainee's lawyer Mokhtar Mounir said Monday that the prosecution denied lawyers and family authorisation to visit Hussein, accusing the prosecutor general of intentionally referring the case to the national security prosecution in order to prevent the defence from taking legal actionto release the detainee.
Hussein has now been detained for more thana month after exceeding the maximum pre-trial detention period.Any demands or requests for his release have so far been in vain.
The detainee's health is rapidly deteriorating and he is in "urgent need" of surgery on his leg, according to his older brother Tarek "Tito" Mohamed.
The Doctors Syndicate filed notes to both the prosecutor general and the Ministry of Interior stating Hussein's need for surgery and physical therapy, and requesting that a medical and rights delegation visits the detainee to assess his condition.
Hussein is better known as the "anti-torture t-shirt detainee," as he was arrested on 25 January 2014 for wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the words "nation without torture". Since then he has been detained without trial on charges of belonging to an outlawed organisation.
