 According to the Egyptian Organization of human rights the trials of Egyptian civilians before military tribunals  remains a phenomenon to be concerned. A report submitted by the organization mentioned the cases tried at the Emergency State security Court referred by the President despite numerous civilian court acquittals.

 Three such cases included two in North Sinai, with the third being the renowned “Khairat al Shater” trial in which 40 prominent Muslim Brotherhood leaders were charged with a host of fabricated accusations including membership of a banned group, money laundering, and militancy. The deputy MB deputy chairman was served a harsh seven year sentence half of which has been served. The detainee's health has made a turn for the worse where he is detained in unsuitable conditions with lack of appropriate health care. Alshater has spent a total of 10 years on and off in Mubarak's prisons under the 'emergency law' which has been in force since he came to power over 30 years ago.

 The law which was stipulated to combat terrorists and drug trafficking has been renewed recently for a further two years giving the Interior Ministry and its security apparatus the green light  to continue to abuse the law and oppress innocent citizens.
