SAR Italy appeal for release of Patrick Zaki

SAR Italy has written a letter to the Egyptian president al-Sisi expressing our grave concern for the decision taken on 7th December to extend Mr Zaki’s detention, and calling for him to be allowed to await his trial at home to ease the physical and psychological suffering that his long detention is causing.

Italian universities and research institutions have been disseminating and supporting the appeals from CRUI and SAR Italy on their websites.
