My son told me he was tortured, says mother of deceased prisoner

The mother of Essam Atta, an inmate of Tora Prison who recently died in a hospital, told prosecutors that her son called her a day before he died and told her he was tortured by prison guards.

She also said that she visited her son in prison every two weeks since he was arrested by the military police last February.

Prosecutors have heard the testimonies of three doctors at the hospital. They said that Atta was poisoned, and that there were no signs of torture on his body.
