While Adib said Taweel is 18, her correct age is 23.
“Why extend her detention? At least make her stand a trial,” said Adib on his show.
Taweel was pulled off the strees in June along with two other friends outside a restaurant in Maadi. Her detention has been included in what human rights organizations are describing as a phenomenon of forced disapperances of youth and human rights activists.
Taweel was shot in the back during the January 25 Revolution anniversary in 2014 while taking photos of protests. Her injury temporarily paralyzed her and she was able to recover through extensive physical therapy.
During her court apperance on November 3, Taweel broke down into tears and pleaded with the judge to let her go home because she was in need of medical care.
