Rights Group Documents 40 Human Rights Violations by Egypt’s Military Regime in a Week
The Egyptian Coordination Committee for Rights and Freedoms documented during the week of February 17-23 more than 40 human rights violations in Egypt, ranging from 37 cases of arbitrary detention or forcible disappearances, two cases of medical negligence, beside other violations inside prisons.
19 enforced disappearances cases are from the Governorate of Sharqia, 9 in Giza, and 6 in Damietta, the rest are from other cities across Egypt .
The Committee confirmed that the military coup authorities continue the crimes of deliberate medical negligence of detainees in detention centers, in clear violation of international and domestic laws.
Article 18 of the Egyptian Constitution provides that "everyone has the right to access integrated health care in accordance with quality standards without excluding prisoners from it." However, the security apparatus ignores that and does not comply.
