The report also quotes another incident, in which fifteen people broke into the apartment of Samar Hassan Mahmoud Mohamed late night at night, searched the flat without an appropriate warrant, broke some of her furniture and took her away to an unknown location. According to eyewitness accounts, security forces mistakenly believed that Mohamed works for Mekamlin TV channel, affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood. Samar is a law student, and a mother of a small child, and she is not an activist nor has any political affiliations, as confirmed by her friend. Her brother filed a complaint to the public prosecution, following her disappearance.
On 24 February, another torture case sparked anger among the public opinion, when Karim Hamdi, a lawyer, died in police custody in Matareyya police station following his arrest for allegedly participating in a MB protest. Hamdi's family refused to sign the forensic report, since they noticed clear signs of torture on his face and hands. Forensic doctors reportedly refused to examine his body.
On 26 February, a forensic report was released saying that Hamdi was brutally beaten. Ten of his ribs were completely fractured and his tongue had been cut out. An anonymous medical source confirmed that Hamdi had several broken ribs, bruises in his abdomen, chest and back probably resulting from kicks, internal bleeding in his chest, abdomen and head along with extensive swelling of his genitals. More information on the report can be found in the following video.
The brutal death of Hamdi sparked a wave of anger among lawyers who organized a sit-in outside the lawyers syndicate, condemning the death of their colleague. Following the incident the Ministry of interior stated that "nobody is above the law," and that whoever tortured Hamdi will soon be punished. However, the ministry also claimed that Hamdi was arrested as a member of a terrorist cell and had firearms in his possession.
