“There are real fears for the physical safety & psychological wellbeing of Malak al-Kashef. #Egyptian authorities have a horrific track record of persecuting people based on their sexual orientation and gender identity...” @amnesty #LGBTQ #FreeMalak
Amnesty International believes that Malak’s arrest relates to her calls for peaceful protests following a major train crash in #Cairo’s central train station on 27 February that killed at least 25 people. #Egypt #LGBTQ #FreeMalak “Due to her gender identity, Malak is at increased risk of torture by the police, including rape and sexual violence, as well as assault by other detainees. The Egyptian authorities are responsible for her physical and psychological safety. They must immediately reveal her whereabouts, and pending her immediate and unconditional release, ensure that she is protected from torture and other abuses.”
