Other Details: He was visited by his brother on 24th July 2012 at Al Abbasiya detention. It was during this visit that he saw marks of torture on his chest and back, and the detainee complained of torture. After the mentioned visit this brother went back to Rashad and Abu Jibaiha to contact the authorities in order to solve this issue. On 6th August 2012 he received a call informing him that Shamseldin escaped from his detention. Up to now his family does not know what is the truth. Detainee’s family comment: They don’t believe the escaping story due to high guarding/protection of the prison. More so, most of them (detainees) are kept inside cells all the time and most of them are chained. “We hope he succeeded in escaping”.
