    And the court ordered the release of Freelance photojournalist Esraa El-Taweel pending investigation on parole on Saturday.

    The judge ordered her release for health reasons as she needs medical care.

    pending investigation early Sunday. Her lawyer
    Mohamed E-Bakkar is seen on the right
    "Abdullah El-Shamy" 
    According to her lawyer, she will be staying at home and won't leave it except after the police's approval for medical treatment.

    I do not know if it is a sort of house arrest or parole to be honest. Yet I know at last she will return back to her home and her family as well her cat woody.

    Yes after many months of detention including weeks in a forcible disappearance state, the young cheerful photographer who loves life is returning to her home even if that return is pending investigation. It is much better than staying in the cold prison.

    Esraa needs immediate therapy to restore her ability to walk normally once again.

    I am happy for Esraa because her release came after a huge campaign against her in the media following the spread of her photos crying in court.


    In the social media, Pro-Sisi supporters launched systematic campaigns saying that she was sharing the addresses and names of officers to target them in terrorist attacks in a Pro-Morsi Facebook page she administrated.
    It is untrue as Esraa was not the admin of any Facebook page other than her own Esraa El-Taweel Photography which was only for her photos and work.
    They also claimed that she was the spokesperson of Students against coup mixing her deliberately I believe with the ex-Spox of that Pro-Morsi group, Arwa El-Taweel.
    Arwa El-Taweel issued a statement regarding that issue and yet they did not want to listen or share that statement.
    Nevertheless, that online campaign was nothing when State-owned MENA news agency released the alleged confessions of Esraa El-Taweel during detention at Homeland security "during her illegal detention/disappearance" where she confessed about that crazy plot to assassinate VIP political figure by planting a bomb in her own camera !!!!
    Her lawyers dismissed those confessions. Needless to say, God only knows what kind of pressure she had been through during her illegal detention at the Homeland security following her disappearance along her friends in early June.
    The happiness of Esraa's family after knowing the news
    Early Saturday by Sameh Abo Hassan
    Anyhow, things changed and it seems that Esraa and her camera are no longer a threat as she released pending investigation.
    To be honest, I felt early Saturday morning that she could be released on that day as part of the regime's sudden change in action when it comes to detainees before the 25 January revolution anniversary.

    Last week, the authorities released over 40 detainees who forcibly disappeared months ago and suddenly reappeared in Al-Azouli military prison.
    In the same week, the authorities allowed visits to Maximum security Al-Aqrab prison. The authorities also transferred the former speaker of People's assembly and MB leading figure Saad El-Katanani and as well Islamist politician Magdy Karkar to hospitals outside the prison for their deteriorating health condition.
    El-Katanani's fragile figure in court from two weeks ago was more than shocking and indicator on the lack of health care at Al-Aqrab prison where thousands of political detainees are imprisoned.
    Now Esraa El-Taweel is back to her family, even pending investigations in a case, we should remember that there are two men who disappeared also in June and we have not known anything about them yet.
    Those men are called Mostafa Massouny and Ashrafa Shehata.
    Please remember them.

    When Aya Hegazy and her husband, Mohamed Hassanein started their project to help their community in their country Egypt in 2013, they had no idea about what was waiting for them a year later.
    The Georgetown University graduate, Egyptian-American Aya Hegazy along her Egyptian husband Hassanein came back to Egypt after the 25 January revolution with hopes that she could help her community using her knowledge.
    In September 2013, she and Hassanein started to operate their NGO "Belady Foundation" to provide shelter for the street children in Downtown Cairo away.
    The NGO aimed not only to provide a safe shelter but to rescue those kids by developing their skills and protecting them from sexual abuse.
    Aya Hegazy and three boys she used to help
    at Belady Foundation "Facebook page" 
    The NGO was starting to work successfully.
    It was still "under establishment" according to the law which means it was operating pending the approval of the ministry of social solidarity.
    Then things went from bad to worse to worst in May 2014 when a couple of street children who used to come to Belady foundation for a shelter were arrested near a Pro-Morsi protest.


    Later, the security forces stormed the NGO headquarter in Mohamed Mahmoud street, arresting Aya Hegazy and her husband as well 6 other volunteers working in the NGO allegedly after a family
    Aya and Amira
    last month as detainees 
    reported it to the authority for kidnapping their son.

    That was said at first, but later we found that Hegazy and her team were accused of recruiting street children to participate in the Pro-Morsi and 6 April Youth marches for money according to alleged National security investigations.

    At the same time, Newspapers and websites like Youm7 even published shocking allegations that Aya and her husband used to abuse the children sexually.
    Noticeably, they presented Hegazy as an American citizen only in those reports.

    After 120 days of detention pending investigation,the Prosecution decided to refer Hegazy and her husband as well the rest of her team to the criminal court for running a foundation that recruited children in order to incite them against the Egyptian regime.
    Needless to say, Aya and her team deny those horrible allegedly.
    I read testimonies online about the Hegazy's organization on how it began to create a difference for the street children in Downtown Cairo and I feel sad.

    Since being referred to the criminal court, the trial of "Belady foundation" team is adjourned every time.
    Now they have been in detention for more than 500 days.
    The last they were in court, the judge decided to adjourn the trial till 13 February 2016.
    Now Aya Hegazy is sending a message from behind the bars telling the people not to forget her.
    Do not leave us in jails and forget us. Do not make us lose hope in justice and humanity.
    This is what Aya is telling the people.
    Unfortunately, Aya is an independent social activist who is unknown to many people.
    Despite she got an American passport yet she nor her family are pushing the States to release her like in the case of Mohamed Soltan.

    She is also not alone. Besides Aya Hegazy and her husband, there are other 6 detainees in the case and they are: Sherif Talaat, Amira Farg, Ibrahim Abou El-Magd, Karim Mahmoud, Mohamed El-Siyad and Zeinab Ramadan.
    We should not forget them.

    Aya and the children she was helping
    at Mohamed Mahmoud street 
    Here is the foundation's YouTube Channel showing old interviews for Hegazy and Hassanein.
