On 17 November 2015, 18-year-old student Moaz Eid Abdelazim Ismael was sentenced to two years in prison for "demonstrating without authorisation," following a flawed trial. Arrested by members of the Security Forces in early July, Moaz was secretly detained for a week during which he was repeatedly tortured. Currently awaiting a new hearing before the public prosecution in the police station where he was tortured, Moaz remains at high risk of being ill-treated again. Fearing for his physical and mental integrity and in view of the risk that their son be sentenced in a new and unfair trial, they contacted Alkarama who, on 26 November 2015, sent an urgent appeal to the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD) to ask the Egyptian authorities to release him immediately and drop all charges against.
On 25 November 2015, Alkarama wrote to several United Nations Special Procedures to encourage them to request a visit to Syria in order to raise the issues of enforced disappearance, torture and arbitrary detention. In particular, Alkarama wrote to the UN Working Group on Enforced Disappearances (WGEID), the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD) and the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture (SRT) − all Special Procedures of the UN Human Rights Council − to engage directly with the competent authorities in Syria with a view to visiting to detention centres in the country.
On 22 November 2015, 43-year-old Arabic literature professor, Salah Salem Slimane Al Hassi was abducted from his home in Bayda City by members of an armed group loyal to General Khalifa Haftar. According to his family, Al Hassi's abduction took place in retaliation for having taken part in a peaceful demonstration a few days earlier. Al Hassi had joined this political protest in an effort to denounce the human rights violations regularly committed by General Haftar's militias in the city of Bayda, in eastern Libya. With the victim still missing and in view of his family's incapacity to obtain information at the national level, on 27 November 2015 Alkarama sent an urgent appeal to the United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances (WGEID) to try and make light of his unlawful arrest.
In October 2012, Fadhil Othman, a 31-year-old concierge from Qamishli – a city in north-eastern Syria on the border with Turkey – disappeared from the national hospital where he was being treated after being shot by members of the Military Security at a checkpoint. Missing since, Alkarama and Human Rights Guardians wrote to the UN Working Group on Enforced Disappearances (WGEID) on 26 November 2015, hoping it will lead to the clarification of his fate and whereabouts.
On 8 July 2015, Hasan Mohammed Hasan Al Essa, a 35-year-old Palestinian refugee, disappeared following his arrest by members of the security forces at his workplace, an aluminium factory in the Al Jadida neighbourhood in Baghdad. Still missing after almost five months, Alkarama and Al Wissam Humanitarian Assembly wrote to the United Nations Committee on Enforced Disappearances (CED) on 26 November 2015, hoping to clarify his fate and whereabouts.
On 25 November 2011, Alkarama and Human Rights Guardians sent a communication to the United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances (WGEID) regarding the case of 49-year-old retired policeman Khalid Zain, his 29-year-old son Mohammad Zain and another family member, 30-year-old Abdallah Zain. They all disappeared after their respective arrests between July 2011 and August 2012.
