Joint statement on Egypt: Presidential pardon frees some women human rights defenders, while others are still detained

2 October 2015 (Nazra for Feminist Studies)

The delay in the release of both Ms. Salwa Mihriz and Ms. Nahed Sherif is quite atrocious, especially that Ms. Mihriz’s release is halted by the fact that her name is not written correctly in the pardon decision. As for Ms. Mahienour El-Massry, it is feared that her exclusion from the concerned pardon is a result of her being targeted for her well-known and prominent human rights activism.
