A scholar unjustly detained, tortured,
Dr. Soltan has endured torture and neglect that have caused his health to severely deteriorate.
Since 2015, Dr. Soltan has been used by the Egyptian regime as a hostage to intimidate his son, Mohamed Soltan, into ending his human rights advocacy in the U.S.
During the beating, the security officer told him that that treatment was only a hint of what was to come.
