Karim’s story: Egypt’s crackdown on human rights workers – podcast – The Guardian

Karim Ennarah, a human rights worker for the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, was at a beach resort in South Sinai when he was arrested and accused of joining a terrorist group and “spreading false news”. He was detained in a prison in Cairo and became one of thousands of political prisoners in the country.

Ennarah tells Anushka Asthana that his arrest was only the beginning of his separation from his British wife. Jess Kelly describes to Anushka the moment that she found out her husband had been arrested by the security services as she rode her bike along a London street, and the great difficulties she herself has faced to be reunited with him.

Having been released from detention, Ennarah still faces travel restrictions in Egypt and an asset freeze. Meanwhile many others like him remain in jail with no access to legal representation.
