Egyptian Government Accused Of Suppressing Abuse Report

Play associated audio
Human Rights Watch is calling on Egypt's president to make public a report that documents police and military abuses against protesters from January 2011 to June 2012. Parts of the report have been leaked to a local newspaper Al Shorouk as well as the British publication The Guardian. In the leaked chapters there are descriptions of police violence and military torture of detainees. While a lot of this is already known about the police and military, the report was referred to the presidency in December and so far no action has been taken. The military this week defended itself, denying any wrongdoing and Egypt's president spoke in solidarity with them.
