A team of general prosecution members has inspected central security camps at Tora, al-Gabal al-Ahmar, and al-Salam as well their prisons in search of children who were said to be detained there.

The inspection yielded no results and no persons, young or old, were found to be detained illegally, the public prosecution said in a statement issued on Thursday.

No children were found at these camps, the prosecution stated.

President of the National Council for Women (NCW) Ambassador Mervat al-Telawi and member of the fact-finding committee at the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights Magda Bekheit Fahmi had filed a complaint to the chief prosecutor general explaining that they were informed there were underage children at central security camps which is a violation of the rights of children and a flagrant breach of the law and of human rights.
