More Action Needed! – 15-Year-Old Boy Tortured and Detained (Egypt: UA 197/16)
The trial of 15-year-old Aser Mohamed has been adjourned to 16 November. He faces a string of charges, including belonging to the banned Muslim Brotherhood group and attacking a hotel, based on “confessions” that he says were obtained under torture after 34 days of enforced disappearance. If convicted he faces up to 15 years imprisonment.
Amnesty International is concerned about the fairness of proceedings leading to the trial and conviction of Leonard Peltier, an Ashinabe-Lakota Native American who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents.
