The Human Rights Committee in the Lawyers Syndicate called on the Supreme Council for Armed Forces to completely change the staff in the Ministry of Interior statring with Minister Mahmoud Wagdy, to the strategy of dealing with citizens and respecting the people and their rights.

In its statement, the committee condemned the fact that not a single policeman was tried, especially the leaders of the State Security apparatus which have used all possible means against the people under the Emergency law and arrested thousands for long years and tortured them. They have also used live ammunition against the protesters of 25 January and killed and injured thousands all over Egypt.

Mamdouh Ismail, rapporteur  of the committee, stated that the Ministry of Interior should have announced a new campaign to change the way it works and to clear it from corrupt and bad leadership. It should also have made a press conference to the whole world, announcing the truth about the killings which took place in the revolution of 25 January, 2011.

He added that news is spreading about the possibility of the returning the police to bring security to the streets and that his committee does not have a problem with that, but everyone knows that there were a group of policemen who were mainly responsible for the incidents in Egypt by exerting all their efforts to protect the ruler and his supporters only.
