#FreePatrick: Stand with Patrick Zaki!
Patrick George Zaki, an Egyptian Masters student at “Alma Mater Studiorum – Università di Bologna” in Italy was abducted by the Egyptian State Security in the early hours of February 7th upon his arrival at Cairo International Airport, where he was travelling to spend his holidays in Egypt.
Patrick spent the first 24 hours under enforced disappearances and then appeared in Mansoura’s Public Prosecution Office. The Egyptian State Security claims to have arrested him from his parent’s house in his hometown of Mansoura, approximately 170 km away from Cairo.
The Egyptian State Security is the same entity involved in the torture and murder of the Italian researcher Giulio Regeni in Cairo in 2016.
