Hesham Abdel Aziz
A 43-year-old Egyptian journalist, working for the Qatari Al-Jazeera channel, was arrested while returning to Egypt in June 2019 to spend his annual leave, as he did ever since his work in Doha. The Supreme State Security Prosecution investigated him and issued a decision to imprison him pending State security Case No. 1365 of 2018. After obtaining a release decision he was subjected to enforced disappearance and then rotated on State security Case No. 1956 of 2019. He suffers from eye problems that may lead to his loss of vision, and his family has submitted more than one request for a medical examination and treatment.
