CPJ has joined 46 human rights organizations and individuals in calling for Egyptian authorities to immediately release Egyptian journalist and blogger Alaa Abdelfattah and his lawyer Mohamed al-Baker after three years of imprisonment.

The September 29 letter also calls on British authorities to intervene to secure the release of Abdelfattah, who obtained U.K. citizenship while in jail, noting that Abdelfattah’s health “has deteriorated to a critical and life-threatening point” following more than 180 days on hunger strike in protest over his conviction and harsh detention conditions.
