I would like to thank all the revolutionaries and comrades in Egypt for their solidarity. All credit for the liberation of all those arbitrarily detained goes to you...I am confident we will not be bullied by repression.

Haitham Mohamadein is a labour rights defender and lawyer affiliated with the El Nadim Centre for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence, an Egyptian NGO that provides pro bono medical and legal care to victims of human rights violations. The human rights defender is a prominent figure in Egyptian civil society as a defender of labour rights and as a member of the El Nadim Centre. He has regularly appeared on television and other media networks in his capacity as a defender of workers' rights.

A significant crackdown on civil society in Egypt has been taking place since 2014. HRDs face an extremely challenging situation due to restrictions imposed on civil society and peaceful public gatherings and protests, travel bans, the arrest and sentencing of HRDs, bloggers, journalists and protesters, as well as an ongoing smear campaign against human rights groups.
