July. 11, 2020
Khalaf Ismail imprisoned sister Fadia, 50, in a run-down house in order to stop her "repeatedly escaping" the family home in Minya, Egypt, his wife claimed.
Neighbors reportedly contacted the authorities and she was rescued by social services.
Fadia received little food and barely any care from her family for the past 11 months, it's alleged.
She showed signs of neglect and a lack of hygiene as a result of being isolated, it was reported.
Her body had been "seriously degraded" by the imprisonment, according to the Egypt Independent.
She had lived in squalor for over two decades, leaving her "physically and psychologically damaged", report News Africa Now.
Fadia refused to be taken to a care home but also did not want to be taken back to her brother's home, according to Al Ahram.
There was "no risk" in her living alone so a safe space was created within the family home following an examination by a psychiatrist, it was reported.
Social services reportedly hope to provide a pension for Fadia to spend without the need of her brother.
Her brother has reportedly been detained since June 27 and the investigation is ongoing.

In related news, a Russian pensioner forced her daughter to live off cat food while caged at her home for 26 years.
Nadezhda Bushueva was kept isolated with her elderly mother in a hovel the pair shared with cats.
Nadezhda had been kept isolated in the home, which had no electricity or running water, since the age of 16 in order to 'protect her from the dangers of the outside world'.
It was only when her mother was hospitalized that the now 42-year-old left the house in the Arefinsky village in western Russia.
Her mother, Tatyana, had kept her daughter trapped at home when she finished school not allowing her to work or to continue her studies, local council leader Vasily Tovarnov said.
Nadezhda said she became "used to it" and did not try to leave of her own accord.
The pair became increasingly reclusive after Tatyana retired and later rejected help from social services and other officials.
When Tatyana fell ill, Nadezhda went to Tovarnov’s office where her shocking ordeal was revealed.
She confided to officials that their house was full of rats and cats and the two women slept in the same bed.
