The detainee Yassir Musa made a call of distress from his prison where he has been incarcerated for 11 months, EgyptWatch has learnt. Yassir is sick and has had previously open-heart surgery and had two stents fitted. He also suffers from several chronic diseases:
Yassir suffered a heart attack last week in Wadi al-Natroun 430 prison according to the diagnosis of the prison hospital. Over the past year, he has been transferred between three prisons: from Ataka prison, to Tora prison, and then toWadi al-Natroun 430.
His family is facing severe restrictions in bringing him clothing, medicine and food, especially after he suffered his heart attack and his increasing poor health.
Yassir said to his wife in her last visit to him:”Save me and rescue me from their hands because they are killing us slowly.”
Yassir is detained after receiving a sentence for 10 years imprisonment in a military case.
His family are demanding an urgent accurate and comprehensive medical examination, followed by the necessary treatment, which may require his release on medical grounds.
