Photojournalist Shawkan is facing the death penalty. His crime? He took photos of the police violence that killed hundreds of people at a protest in Cairo’s streets, in August 2013.
Shawkan has suffered torture and other ill-treatment during his five years of detention. He is also not receiving the medical care he requires for Hepatitis C.
He has told the judge: “Taking pictures isn’t a crime.” He’s right.
