Le procureur décide de libérer cinq militants, dont Ayat Hamada, membre des mouvements Ikhwan Kazeboon et Tamarroud | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Lawyers from the Nedal Center for Rights and Freedoms released a statement late Sunday saying that the prosecution decided to release five detained activists, including activist Ayat Hamada, with a 1,000 EGP (U.S. $143.65) fine.

 Ayat Hamada, who is a member of the Ikhwan Kazeboon and Tamarod movements, was arrested on Dec. 28, 2013 during clashes at Al-Azhar University.

 The Nedal Center has presented many petitions to request the release of Hamada or to have her examined by medical committee for poor health and illnesses.

 Al-Tahrir Doctors’ Association demanded the release of Hamada in a press release on Jan. 8, citing her poor health. The association said that Hamada is suffering from a life-threatening ailment.

Egyptian doctors 'ordered to operate on protesters without anaesthetic'

Egyptian doctors 'ordered to operate on protesters without anaesthetic' | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Exclusive: Leaked presidential report recommends an investigation into the highest echelons of the army leadership .

Senior Egyptian army doctors were ordered to operate without anaesthetic on wounded protesters at a military hospital in Cairo during protests against military rule, according to an investigation commissioned by president Mohamed Morsi. The report into military and police malpractice since 2011 also alleges that doctors, soldiers and medics assaulted protesters inside the hospital.

The findings, which relate to the army's behaviour during the Abbassiya clashes in May 2012, are the latest leak to the Guardian of a suppressed report investigating human rights abuses in Egypt since the start of the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak. Earlier leaks alleged that the military were involved in torture, killings and forced disappearances during the uprising.

The new chapter contains testimony from doctors and protesters about the treatment of injured demonstrators at the Kobri el-Qoba military hospital in Cairo in May 2012.

It alleges that a senior military doctor ordered subordinates to operate on wounded protesters without anaesthetic or sterilisation and reports that doctors, nurses and senior officers also beat some of the wounded protesters. It also claims that a senior officer ordered soldiers to lock protesters in a basement.

The chapter concludes by recommending an investigation into the highest echelons of the army leadership – a deeply significant development. Even though the report has not been officially published, its status as a presidential document – coupled with the extent of its conclusions – represents the first acknowledgment by the state of the scale of the atrocities both during and since the 2011 uprising.

"I can't overestimate the importance of this report," said Heba Morayef, the director of Human Rights Watch in Egypt. "It's incredibly important. Until today, there has been no official state acknowledgement of excessive force on the part of the police or military.

Body of missing activist found with birdshot wound to head | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Opposition activist Mohamed al-Shafie's body has been found, and an autopsy has reportedly revealed a birdshot wound to his head.

Shafie's family recovered his body at Cairo's Zeinhum morgue late Sunday. Investigations found he had been missing since 29 January.

The Azbakiya prosecution is continuing an investigation into his death. Prosecutors from the office quoted his mother as saying that he was going to buy clothes from downtown Cairo, but when she tried to phone him later his cell phone was off.

Shafie's mother said she searched several hospitals and police stations, adding she also asked at the morgue earlier this month but didn't find her son among four bodies that were shown to her.

She added that she returned to the morgue Sunday and found her son's body covered in bruises, and she also learned that the body was originally brought to the morgue on 30 January.

Egypt Activist Gets 2 Years for Prosecutor Slap | TIME.com

Egypt Activist Gets 2 Years for Prosecutor Slap | TIME.com | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

An Egyptian activist who led protests over an iconic torture victim during the rule of Hosni Mubarak was sentenced on Tuesday to two years in prison for allegedly slapping a prosecutor.

The activist, Hassan Mostafa, denied the charge, and his lawyer called the case a malicious prosecution. Activists rallied outside the court Tuesday demanding his release.

The prosecutor accused Mostafa of slapping him during an argument over the whereabouts of protesters arrested during a January rally in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria. Mostafa’s lawyer, Hamdy Khalaf, said Tuesday he was present during the argument and that the slap never took place.

Mostafa, 31, was a lead organizer of protests over the case of Khaled Said, a young man tortured to death by police in 2010. The death became a rallying cry for protesters that in part led to the uprising that toppled Mubarak in February 2011.

The same prosecutor investigated Mostafa during the 2010 anti-torture protests, leading to Mostafa being sentenced to a month in prison for fighting with a policeman, Khalaf told The Associated Press.

Mohammed Salem, Mostafa’s brother, said the slapping case was brought because his brother has been a “headache” for authorities with his activism.

Egyptian activist found beaten, dumped outside Cairo

Egyptian activist found beaten, dumped outside Cairo | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

(Reuters, via Aswat Masriya) - An Egyptian opposition activist was found beaten and tied up in the desert near Cairo on Friday, four days after he went missing from a protest demanding the removal of President Mohamed Mursi, a security source and a fellow campaigner said.

Ibrahim Hanafi, who was rescued and treated for bruises on his back, had been working with the Freedom Front for Peaceful Change, collecting evidence of what he saw as "violations" by Islamist politicians, said the group's general coordinator Essam El Sharif.

"Our colleagues in the movement and the police found him tied to a tree, naked and bound with a letter that carries threats ... against anyone who talks (negatively) about the Brotherhood," he added, referring to the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood group that propelled Mursi to power.

A Muslim Brotherhood spokesman said the group had nothing to do with Hanafi's beating, or any involvement in other "indecent cases".

*********************

 

Un militant de l'opposition égyptienne a été retrouvé ce vendredi portant des traces de coups et ligoté dans le désert près du Caire, quatre jours après sa disparition lors d'une manifestation contre le président Mohamed Morsi, apprend-on auprès des services de sécurité et d'un autre militant.

Ibrahim Hanafi, qui est soigné pour des contusions au dos, travaille pour le Front de la liberté pour le changement pacifique. Son travail consiste à rassembler des preuves de faits contraires à la loi de la part d'hommes politiques islamistes, explique le coordinateur général de l'association, Essam el Charif. «Nos collègues du mouvement et la police l'ont trouvé attaché à un arbre, nu et porteur d'une lettre de menaces (...) contre quiconque parlera (en mal) des Frères», ajoute le responsable, en référence aux Frères musulmans qui ont porté le président Morsi au pouvoir en juin. La confrérie n'a rien à voir avec les violences contre Ibrahim Hanafi, a déclaré une porte-parole. (20 minutes)
