Stages of Karims journey:
– On March 3rd, 2021, the security forces raided the house of Karim’s aunt. They arrested him without finding any possession or evidence proving that the child had committed a crime.
– The child Karim remained forcibly disappeared in the National Security headquarters for 11 days. He appeared on March 13th, 2021 before the Supreme State Security Prosecution.
