Teacher’s family petitions General Prosecutor for his release

The brother of a teacher detained for two months petitioned General Prosecutor Hisham Barakat for his release on Sunday.

Ragab Ali Reyad, brother of the accused Reyad Ali Reyad, said in his complaint to the judge that his brother was arrested by mistake.

Ragab said that his brother, a primary school teacher in Imbaba, was only passing through the area, and been unaware of the demonstrations and nearby violence.

 Reyad Ali Reyad was arrested along with approximately 600 others near Ramses station, Cairo, on July 16, following the burning of the Al Esbakia police station. In total, 62 of all arrested have been referred to general prosecution, according to state-owned Al Ahram.
