MB MP After Release of NCHR Report: Situation of Human Rights In Egypt Very Bad, Not assuring
MB Parliamentary Bloc Spokesperson Dr. Hamdy Hasan affirmed in his statement to Ikhwanweb that the situation of human rights in Egypt was obviously very bad adding that “the daily protests and central security vehicles we have been seeing on the major streets and squares of Egypt are the best proof.”
“I believe that international institutions know the reality of the human rights situation in Egypt and about the National Council of Human Right’s delay in releasing its annual report over fear of its impact on Egypt’s image in the UN,” Hasan stated adding that the council would not be able to beautify the ugly situation.
Press sources had affirmed that the delay in releasing the NCHR’s annual report went back to the council’s desire to improve the image presented on the human rights situation in Egypt and reduce the severity of transgressions and breaches concerned with the violations of citizens’ political, economic, and social rights included in the report.
