Body of forcibly disappeared man held for 6 years without his family being notified in Egypt

Mohamed Jumaa Youssef Afifi, 52, died at the National Security Headquarters in Cairo in December 2015 after he was tortured so badly he had a heart attack.

Rather than admitting that he had been killed, prison authorities continued to claim that Mohamed was alive and failed to inform his family even though they filed several lawsuits to find out where he was.

Mohamed actually died less than a month after being arrested.
