"Does anyone hear? Today Nafesa has died"
14 March 2005
 
Who will protect the women of Sarando village? Land Center for Human Rights has received the news of the death of Mrs. Nafesa Zakareya Mohamed El Marakby who lives in Sarando village - Damanhour station, she is 40 years old, she was arrested on Sunday evening 13/3/2005 by Damanhour police forces and she was detained in one of the headquarters of the Ministry of the Interior, mistreated and tortured which has resulted of having a very bad psychological condition after being released on Monday at 3:00 AM, she went back to the village in a complete prostration, when she arrived to her home, she was paralysed, a doctor was sent for and he transferred her to Damanhour hospital, then she died suffering from the torture that she has faced after a few hours from being in the hospital. That comes as a completion to the violation series against the farmers in the village, Nafesa was transported by an ambulance to the village cemeteries the next morning, and she was buried before her family could receive her, and that is of course, to hide the torture crime. The LCHR is wondering, when will the torture and humiliation of the farmer`s women (to pressure them so that they hand over their lands to the ownership claimer) stop?
Today the Center has presented a communiqué to the general Prosecutor to investigate this calamity and take Nafesa`s body out of the grave to confirm the cause of her death as a result of being tortured and listen to the witnesses who also confirmed that she was tortured by the police, to keep the sanctity and safety of women and children.
And the Center demands the Minister of the Interior to stop the violations against men, women and children, protect them and stop the threats that they face to leave their lands to the ownership claimer at the village to guarantee their rights in personal safety and safe possession. LCHR adjures all of the democratic forces, the civil society organizations and the freedom committees at the Lawyers syndicate to unite in solidarity with Sarando farmers and protect their rights in freedom, personal safety and life.
