He was imprisoned without charge in pre-trial detention for the bulk of that time. Due to criticism from all around the world for the use of indefinite detentions to end, he was put on trial in a new case in October before a state security court.
Mohamed Oxygen, a human rights attorney who defended Alaa during Mohamed al-detention, Baqer’s is also accused of disseminating false information. Defense lawyers were unable to present a defence because they were denied access to the case file.
