Torture in Hadra Prison

by , under Blog

The above video has been circulating in the Egyptian blogosphere for a while. It purportedly shows a “welcome party” handed down by Alexandria’s Hadra Prison officers and corporals to a new truckload of prisoners. This video has been uploaded to youtube on 8 March, the abuse is believed to have happened sometime after January.

The Hadra prison is one of the most notorious prisons in the north (together with Borg el-Arab). Rights groups have already recorded several cases of torture in that facility.

Has the above video been investigated by General Mansour el-Essawi, the interior minister? Has it been investigated by the public prosecutor? Have those torturers, whose identities could be easily found by the interior ministry, been held accountable?
