As I’m writing now, Security forces are inside the Center for Trade Union and Workers’ Services (CTUWS) office in Helwan. The Center has come under siege of at least four Central Security Forces trucks, loaded with conscripts, battalions of plainclothes, and swarms of State Security police agents.

There’s a group of activists inside the Center, who refused the eviction order, but they were outnumbered of course by the police thugs, who are now confiscating the furniture and all the items inside the office.

I’ll update the posting, when I receive more details…

UPDATE: In a statement I received from the Nadeem Center for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Torture about the assault, the activists said that…

It is worth noting that the police force showed no official document of closure and said they have (Oral Orders) to close the place.
