DescriptionAs to the UN universal declaration of human rights: "No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest or detention", but this is not always the case. The arbitrary detainees can be detained for no reason for periods over a year. As to some constitutional amendments, there is no ceil for the arbitrary detention period. UN may process 66 cases per a country.Yet a country like Egypt has over than 40,000 reported cases of arbitrary detention over the past year alone. Human rights organizations can process an average of 100 cases per year. This means even fewer cases gets the media exposure, to get their stories to public. We have decided to give those thousands of detainees a voice. We are creating a platform to crowd-source their data, with the possibility of verification from HR organizations. Every prisoner is important, we are giving each one of the a profile like page, with videos,news,articles about him or from him.
