Manar Adel Abu El-Naga
A mathematics teacher at Tanta University, married with a son. She was arrested from her home in Alexandria on March 9, 2019, along with her husband, Omar Abdel Hamid Abu Al-Naja, and their one-year-old son, Al-Baraa. The entire family was subjected to enforced disappearance for a period of 23 months without contact with the outside world or their relatives knowing their whereabouts. On February 20, 2021, Mrs. Manar appeared in the State security Prosecution with her son, who had turned 3 years old after two years of enforced disappearance. Manar was brought before the prosecution pending State security Case No. 970 of 2020 on charges of joining and financing a terrorist group. The prosecution report stated that Manar was arrested on February 17, 2021, not March 9, 2019, despite the fact that her family obtained a court ruling two years ago requiring the Ministry of Interior to disclose her whereabouts. She was transferred to Qanater prison for women and her son was handed over to her family. The fate of her husband Omar and the place of his detention are still unknown to this date.
