Update: Prosecutor did not appear, no hearing today

Aug 29, 2013, 11am

After waiting the entire day outside the prison, and with curfew approaching, our lawyers had to leave as the prosecutor had not arrived by the end of the day. Tarek and John remain in prison. No word has come about rescheduling their appearance before the prosecutor. No other hearings took place, including for other prisoners who were up for their appearances before the prosecutor.

We do not yet know if the detention order is being extended and have not heard news concerning the next scheduled appearance. Despite our frustration, we are asking supporters of Tarek and John to wait for further news.
