Summary

  • "Staff at Scorpion Prison beat inmates severely, isolate them in cramped "discipline" cells, cut off access to families and lawyers, and interfere with medical treatment, according to the report, "'We Are in Tombs': Abuses in Egypt's Scorpion Prison." The report documents cruel and inhuman treatment by officers of Egypt's Interior Ministry that probably amounts to torture in some cases and violates basic international norms for the treatment of prisoners"--Publisher's description.
