ERC Condemns Assassination of Public Prosecutor Hisham Barakat
The Egyptian Revolutionary Council condemns in the strongest terms the bomb attack targeting the Public Prosecutor, Hisham Barakat which resulted in his death.
The ERC believes that the repressive policies pursued by the Sisi regime, with murder imprisonment and rape, frequently used as methods of political control, has inevitably destabilised society and led the country towards increased violence.
Dr Maha Azzam stated that, “The ERC opposes all acts of terrorism and calls for the withdrawal of the military from politics, a return to the democratic process and respect for the rule of law as the best means of restoring security and stability in Egypt”.
