Release of Islam Salama
Lawyers for Lawyers welcomes the release of Egyptian attorney at law Islam Salama who is back home after 40 days of enforced disappearance.
Earlier this month, Lawyers for Lawyers expressed concern about the enforced disappearance of attorney at law Mr. Salama in a letter to the Egyptian authorities. Mr. Salama disappeared after a Court ordered his release on bail on 16 January 2021. However, after the bail was posted and all other (legal) proceedings were completed, Mr. Salama disappeared, while being in custody of the Egyptian authorities.
Read our letter and more information about Mr. Salama’s enforced disappearances here.
