Impact Litigation Project Issues Press Release

The Center’s Impact Litigation Project has issued a press release calling for the immediate release of Mahmoud Abou Zeid ‘Shawkan’, an Egyptian photojournalist, who has been detained in Egypt since 2013. Shawkan is set to appear in court on February 6, 2016. The press release seeks his immediate release as his more than 900-day imprisonment is a violation of Egypt’s maximum of two years of pre-trial detention.
