Egypt: HRW Slams Egypt

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Egypt, Governance, Human Rights, Politics, Protest

Egyptian-based blogger Issandr El Amarani links to an article [1] in which Human Rights Watch (HRW) criticises Egypt for its heavy-handedness in dealing with protesters demonstrating against amendments to the constitution. The changes, said HRW, “effectively remove basic protections against violations of Egyptians’ rights to privacy, individual freedom, security of person and home and due process.”
