Today, a coalition of international and Egyptian NGOs has submitted a detailed legal analysis to the UN Committee against Torture concluding that the Egyptian authorities’ use of torture is so widespread and systematic as to amount to a crime against humanity under customary international law.
(EIPR) issued a report titled “HRDs in front of emergency court: the trial of members of the Egyptian Coordination for Rights and Freedoms (ECRF)” in which it called for the acquittal of lawyers Hoda Abdel Moneim, Mohamed Abu Huraira, Ezzat Ghoneim, and Mrs. Aisha Al-Shater, members of ECRF, after they were indicted in connection with the Supreme State Security Emergency case no. 1552 of 2018, in which the ruling will be issued next Sunday, March 5, 2023.
