Co-Founder and Co-Director of Eyewitness Human Rights and International Law
Held in Solitary Confinement, Locked Up 24/7 as a Political Hostage
Facing Death in Egypt
To my fellow American citizens and people who believe in the political, human rights and civil liberties for all humans, and the protection of their most fundamental constitutional international rights and opinions.
I am writing to you today to affirm that we, as Americans, believe the strength of our great nation lies first in the hands of the President of the United States of America. It also lies with the media and U.S. citizens who choose to stay actively engaged in the preservation of human rights.
It is critical that this information be taken seriously and Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi along with the Egyptian government be held accountable for the kidnapping, rape, and torture of my wife. She is, unfortunately, one of many innocent people whose human rights have been severely violated by the corrupt Egyptian government. Egypt is a dangerous place to be in and or to travel to. It is no longer safe for Americans or any citizen of a free nation to travel there.
My name is David Lee Morgan, of 1509 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, California 90015, I am a U.S. citizen and a veteran that has served and defended the U.S. as a Counter Intelligence Operative for 38 years. NOW, I need your help in saving my wife’s life. She has been held in solitary confinement since August 19, 2018, against her will in an Egyptian death camp jail, because of her political opinions of the Egyptian military ruling regime, headed by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, President of Egypt.
I am represented in Los Angeles by attorneys Ted Batsakis, Joanne Gangloff, and Tedd O’Reilly. and in Egypt by a legal team headed by Nasr Abd Elhadi, Khalid Elmasri, Hisham El faham, and Taha Al barm, We are preparing to launch a class action lawsuit against the Egyptian government
The torture and killing of innocent people in Egypt under President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi’s regime are widely known. According to the Amnesty International Report 2017/18, Egyptian authorities “used torture and other ill-treatment and enforced disappearance against hundreds of people, and dozens were extra-judicially executed with impunity.”
Additionally, “President al-Sisi signed a draconian new law giving the authorities broad powers to deny NGOs (non-governmental organizations) registration, dissolve NGOs and dismiss their boards of administration.”
Basically, any person or organization that disagrees with Al-Sisi’s oppressive policies is subject to arrest, imprisonment, torture and even death, I am in daily contact with PAID sources (names withheld) inside the prison who provide me with information and photos (included with this statement). I do solemnly swear and affirm that all statements made by me, in this submission to you as a member of the media, are true and correct, and I say:
1. I married Naglaa Mokhtar Younis Mohamed Azzab Morgan (Arabic: نجلاء مختار يونس مورجان ) on August 23, 2017. She is a very famous preacher in Egypt, devoted to helping women and children in need.
2. On August 19, 2018, at approximately 3:40 pm, while waiting for a flight from Cairo, Egypt to Saudi, Arabia, Naglaa was arrested and taken into custody at Cairo International Airport. Egyptian Political National Security Police (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى) made the arrest and seized her passport without any arrest warrants or a judge’s order, and without even being charged with a crime. Our flight on Nile Airline was cancelled by Egyptian Immigration Officers for no apparent reason, I believe, other than to harass my wife because we are human rights activists.
3. Out of deep concern for my wife’s and my own safety and security, and as a U.S. citizen, I immediately contacted the American Citizen Services Section of the Embassy of the United States of America in Cairo, Egypt. As shown from Embassy-recorded telephone calls and emails, I was in contact with the counsel on duty, Mr. Markus, on August 19, 2018, and reported to him details of the events that occurred at the Cairo Airport. I also reported to the embassy officials that threats were made to my life and to charge me with espionage, For 9 days, I did not know where my wife was. I was told there was no record of her arrest in the system.
The authorities would not acknowledge her existence to me or to officials at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. Then, on August 28 I received a phone call around 8:30 am PST from Egyptian police. I was told that she would be going to court at 10 am the next day on August 29, 2018.
4. On August 29, 2018, my wife arrived at the National Political District Attorney Prosecutors head office (Arabic: نيابة أمن الدولة العليا) in Nasr City, Cairo Egypt 9 days after her arrest. She was interviewed by Badr Marwan (Arabic: بدر مروان), the public prosecutor at National Political District Attorney Prosecutors head office (Arabic: نيابة أمن الدولة العليا) nonstop for 29 hours!
5. I paid an Egyptian Police officer a BRIBE of $300 USD for a brief, 2-minute secret visit with Naglaa in the toilet area on August 29,201She told me that she was not only beaten, but also raped by two Egyptian Political National Security Police Officers (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى) at a time, while the other male officers watched. She was also raped when another officer shoved a wooden stick into her rectum and anus, I saw thatNaglaa’s body was covered with bruises on her face, back, shoulders and buttocks, along with cuts and visible wounds on her neck. There was heavy bleeding from the bottom of her feet. Such marks and bruises clearly suggest and confirm that she has been excessively tortured and assaulted. (The attached sketches illustrate the extent of her injuries) ,
6. Naglaa was also severely beaten by Egyptian Police ( Arabic:قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى) and they administered electric shocks. Also, they pulled out her pubic hairs.
7. This accounting of what happened provides a gruesome and detailed picture of over torture by the hands of Egyptian National Political Security Officers (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى ) This is an extremely SERIOUS VIOLATION of international human rights and amounts to a crime against humanity by the Ruling Government Regime in Egypt on the order of Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, President of Egypt. Here is a list of the violations:
7.1 On arrival, my wife was stripped completely naked, blindfolded, and handcuffed from behind for the entire 9 days following her arrest. She was in a very stressful and physically painful position. She was also intimidated and coerced into doing humiliating acts that caused “physical and moral” harm and discomfort to her body and mental state. She was called a “piece of shit American.”
7.2 While totally naked, an assembly line of strong male Egyptian Political National Police Officers (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى) beat her with sticks, batons, whips and metal bars at the same time. She was slapped, punched and kicked in the face and back of her neck, like a punching bag.
7.3 Egyptian National Police Security Officers (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى) administered electric shocks and pulled Naglaa’s pubic hairs.
7.4 Sleep deprivation, twice for up to 48 hours, during the 9 days following her arrest.
7.5 Invasion of privacy as a woman. My wife was watched by male guards when she used the open door toilet and only allowed to use it once a day for 3 minutes.
7.6 Handcuffing her hands behind her back, then securing them to a door with hooks. She was literally hung onto the door—suspended in mid-air—while the pressure of weight on her body caused her shoulders to be dislocated. While hanging from the door, she was also beaten with metal whips and officers spat in her face. (See artist sketch)
7.7 Naglaa was sexually assaulted by Egyptian Political National Security Police (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى) once by shoving a wooden stick shoved into her rectum and anus and once by other male officers at the same time, while other male officers watched and calling her an “American whore.”
7.8 A dog collar was placed around Naglaa’s neck, and she was forced to act like a dog and cat by crawling around on her hands and knees. She was also ordered to lick and kiss the officers’ boots and beg for mercy. They kicked my wife and spat in her face as she complied with the order.
7.9 The agents of the Egyptian Political National Security Police (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى) beat her in the face and on top of her head with old and dirty shoes as humiliating acts.
7.10 My wife was totally denied food for several days and was only offered human waste (feces) unless she danced naked and sing a famous patriotic song in support of the Egyptian Army called “Teslam Al Ayadi.” Then she was given food and water.
7.11 My wife was and is still being denied, urgently needed medical care as requested by us. She has not been examined by a forensic medical specialist.
7.12 My wife was and is still being denied, any consular or family visits. I haven’t seen my wife since August 29, 2018, at the National Political District Attorneys Prosecutors (Arabic: نيابة أمن الدولة العليا) Building.
7.13 In addition to the inhumane treatment suffered by my wife, Naglaa Mokhtar Younis Mohamed Azzab Morgan, (Arabic: نجلاء مختار يونس مورجان) the Egyptian Political National Security Police (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى ) has created a fraudulent arrest warrant and made false claims against her. They said Naglaa was arrested on August 28, 2018, which is 9 days after her actual arrest. They claim she was walking in the desert, with her passport in her hand, 40 miles away from Cairo International Airport. Why would they need a warrant to arrest someone who was just walking in the desert near the airport?
8. Statements made by Egyptian officials are totally untrue and unfounded—and most of all, an enormous cover-up of the ordered political kidnapping and government-enforced disappearance of my wife. Nine days after her actual arrest, until she was interviewed by the National Political District Attorneys Prosecutors (Arabic: النائب العم) Office, she was forced to read, sign and admit to a prepared written confession of a highly fabricated, unbelievable and unrealistic political crime, which was recorded on video.
9. With no known accomplices who MIGHT have participated with my wife in the “alleged” crime, Egyptian Political National Security Police (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى) falsely accused Naglaa Mokhtar Younis Mohamed Azzab Morgan (Arabic: نجلاء مختار يونس مورجان ) of the following political charges:
9.1 Being the leading member of a terrorist organization (Muslim Brotherhood) “once” and then being a leading member of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) “once.” They couldn’t make up their minds or even reconcile the fact that both organizations don’t like, associate with, or even agree with each other.
9.2 Acting alone to plan and organize a military coup to overthrow the Ruling Government Regime by force in a plot against Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, President of Egypt.
9.3 My wife, Naglaa Mokhtar Younis Mohamed Azzab Morgan (Arabic: نجلاء مختار يونس مورجان ) has now been recommended by the National Political District Attorneys Prosecutors (Arabic: النائب العام) to face the death penalty. I am under great threat to my personal safety and security by Egyptian National Political Security Officers (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى) and threatened with facing charges of espionage for the United States of America if I keep on campaigning for my wife’s release.
9.4 Her arrest is now causing an international political embarrassment to the ruling government regime. It particularly exposes their violations under the International Human Rights Convention and Declaration Obligations, enforcing the protection and observation of human rights. Egypt is a so-called signatory member of the human rights treaty, so they want to cover up what happened to my wife by fabricated charges.
10. At her appearance and during her interview by the National Political District Attorneys Prosecutors (Arabic: نيابة أمن الدولة العليا) lawyers for my wife said the blue bruises on her back,
shoulders and buttocks; cuts and visible wounds on her neck and the bottoms of her feet clearly confirm that she has been subjected to over torture. Her condition has been documented as evidence. Furthermore, the attorneys requested that my wife to be examined by a forensic medical specialist. The request was granted by the public prosecutor Badr Marwan (Arabic: بدر مروان) National Political District Attorneys Prosecutors (Arabic: نيابة أمن الدولة العليا) but Egyptian National Political Security Officers (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى), refused his order.
11. I have also submitted on September 1, 2018, a request to the Attorneys General of Egypt and to the prosecutor asking that my wife be examined by a forensic medical specialist. All requests were granted and ordered by National Political District Attorneys Prosecutors (Arabic: نيابة أمن الدولة العليا) on file, BUT all requests, including orders by the public prosecutor, Badr Marwan (Arabic: بدر مروان) of National Political District Attorneys Prosecutors (Arabic: نيابة أمن الدولة العليا), were denied by the Egyptian National Political Security Police (Arabic: قطاع مباحث الأمن الوطنى) officer in charge. He won’t allow my wife to have medical care, medication, examination by a forensic medical specialist or family visits. All these facts were reported to staff at the American Citizens Services at the Embassy of the United States of America in Cairo, Egypt.
12. I have submitted several requests and appeals to the Office of Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, President of Egypt, and to the Office of the Attorneys General in Egypt (Arabic: النائب العام) to review my wife’s case and intervene on her behalf, as there is NO evidence and NO witness for these made- up charges. Here is the timeline of my correspondence with the Attorneys General and the Office of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, President of Egypt.
12.1 September 1, 2018: Registered complaint with the Office of Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, President of Egypt, under case number 218/2018, with copies of documents sent to the Egyptian Attorneys General Office (Arabic: النائب العام) requesting review and intervention, medical care, medication, and a forensic medical specialist to examine my wife. No response.
12.2 September 10, 2018: Registered under number 298/2018 to the Chief Attorneys General Prosecutors (Arabic: النائب العام) requesting for the second time, medical care and medication for my wife, and that she be examined by a forensic medical specialist. No response.
12.3 September 13, 2018: Contacted Deputy Attorneys, General National Security District Attorneys Prosecutors (Arabic: نيابة أمن الدولة العليا) requesting for the third time, medical care, medication, and examination by a forensic medical specialist for my wife. No response.
12.4 On September 15, 2018: Contacted Deputy Attorneys, General National Security and District Attorneys Prosecutors (Arabic: نيابة أمن الدولة العليا), requesting for the fourth time, medical care, medication, and examination by a forensic medical specialist for my wife. No response.
12.5 September 21, 2018: Submitted request for the fifth time to the Attorneys General and Deputy Attorneys, General National Security and District Attorney Prosecutors (Arabic: نيابة أمن الدولة العليا) for medical care, medication, and examination by a forensic medical specialist. No response.
12.6 September 25, 2018: Registered under case number 352/2018 with the Minister of Interiors of Egypt, requesting medical care, medication, and for my wife to b examined by a forensic medical specialist.
12.7 September 29, 2018: Registered under case number 10790/2018, submitted a request to the Attorneys General (Arabic: النائب العام) for investigations, medical care, and medication, and for my wife to be examined by a forensic medical specialist. No response.
12.8 October 10, 2018: Registered under case number 11331/2018, and requested that Attorneys General (Arabic: النائب العام) investigate my wife’s case, and for her to receive medical care, medication, and examination by a forensic medical specialist. I also requested a full investigation into the fraud and corruption by political leaders asking for 1,000,000 Egyptian pounds ($300,000 USD) as a bribe in exchange for my wife.
My wife Naglaa is still being held in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT, locked up 24/7 since August 19, 2018, which is another form of punishment and imprisonment. She has been forced to live in a single concrete cell, 4 feet long x 2 feet wide, without any contact with other inmates or the outside world whatsoever for over 90 days. She is locked inside a bare room with no bed or blanket. She has only been allowed to use the bathroom for 3 minutes, once a day. She is a political hostage facing the death penalty in Egypt.
13. Egypt continues to suffer from unprecedented human rights abuses, in which both women and men are being tortured. The abuse has not stopped at this point but has only escalated. At the heart of these human rights violations is the Egyptian Coordination For Rights and Freedoms whose Executive Director, human rights activist and lawyer Ezzat Ghneim, has been arrested. His location remains unknown to this day. Arrests have now extended to more members of the Egyptian Coordination For Rights and Freedoms. One of the most prominent is 60-year-old Professor Hoda Abdel Moneim. She is the former member of the National Council for Human Rights and former Egyptian Coordination for Rights and Freedoms legal adviser team.
14. Accordingly, the Egyptian Coordination for Rights and Freedoms has suspended its human rights work in Egypt until further notice in protest against the continued government-enforced disappearances of Ezzat, Hoda and Mohamed Abu Huraira, a lawyer and former spokesman for Egyptian Coordination for Rights and Freedoms.
15. it was reported that security forces broke into Ezzat and Hoda’s apartment and ransacked it before taking them to an undisclosed location. We emphasize the following:
15.1 The human rights climate in Egypt is not conducive to the practice of any local human rights work.
15.2 The continued targeting of the Egyptian Coordination for Rights and Freedoms and other human rights activists in Egypt constitutes a premeditated crime that necessitates the intervention of the UN Human Rights Council in accordance with the official agreements signed by the State of Egypt.
15.3 The suspension of Egyptian Coordination for Rights and Freedoms activity in Egypt and the absence of any local working team until this decision of suspension is considered together with any reactions to it.
16. The Egyptian Coordination for Rights and Freedoms has conducted its legal work in a framework of integrity and professionalism, but has taken this difficult decision to suspend its work despite the critical circumstances in Egypt where human rights abuses are systematic and has exceeded all conventions and customs, in order to make the parties concerned face their responsibilities.
17. The National Council for Human Rights in Egypt is required to immediately carry out its designated role. Its silence in front of the continued attack on human rights defenders is tacit approval of these acts and suggests complicity of the National Council of Human Rights in this attack.
18. The human rights situation in Egypt, especially with regard to the rights of detainees and human rights defenders, has been the worst in Egypt’s history in the past five years. Furthermore, Egyptian authorities have committed the most serious violations beyond all humanitarian norms, including the storming of women’s homes, their detention and the arrests of their families over the past three months alone.
19. We demand the release of all activists, human rights defenders and prisoners of conscience, starting with my wife Naglaa, Mr. Ezzat Ghneim and Mrs. Huda Abdel Moneim. We stress that ending these unjust practices is extremely important, and even necessary to protect Egypt from the consequences of violence and tyranny.
20. The Egyptian Coordination of Rights and Freedoms emphasizes that it will not leave the human rights field and will continue to stand with the oppressed and be their voice in every platform.
With your help, we can become a louder voice in the fight for justice. Let’s stop the killing of all innocent human beings in Egypt. such as Naglaa. Let’s ensure that she will NOT face the death execution squad in Egypt, permitted by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al- Sisi’s corrupt officials of the military ruling government regime.
