L'Observatoire des Droits de l'Homme reproche au gouvernement intérimaire de l'Egypte sa politique de "tolérance zéro" à l'égard de toute forme d'opposition

L'Observatoire des Droits de l'Homme reproche au gouvernement intérimaire de l'Egypte sa politique de "tolérance zéro" à l'égard de toute forme d'opposition | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Human Rights Watch (HRW) has rebuked Egypt’s interim government for its “zero tolerance” policy towards any form of dissidence in recent months.

In a statement released on Thursday, HRW said there has been a crackdown against those expressing political opinions that don't toe the party line, as seen in the arrests and prosecution of journalists, demonstrators and academics who had peacefully expressed their dissenting views.

“Journalists should not have to risk years in an Egyptian prison for doing their job,” said Joe Stork, HRW’s deputy Middle East director, in the statement.

The statement was issued on the same day that 20 Al Jazeera journalists headed to court for the so-called “Marriot cell” case. They face charges of belonging to a terrorist organization, fabricating news and threatening national security.

HRW also pointed to the prosecution of two prominent academics as a violation of the newly passed Constitution, which prohibits jail time for political dissidents, as well as the international charters to which Egypt is a signatory that guarantee freedom of expression.

Politique : La polarisation se durcit en Egypte

Politique : La polarisation se durcit en Egypte | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

L’opposition et la presse ont vivement réagi lundi 25 au discours du président Mohamad Morsi, la veille, menaçant de prendre des mesures contre les hommes politiques qui seraient responsables des affrontements sanglants qui ont eu lieu vendredi 22 à Moqattam, aux abords du siège des Frères musulmans.

Bien que les propos du président aient été mesurés et qu’il n’ait stigmatisé ni parti ni indi­vidu en particulier, l’opposition, la presse et de nombreux activistes estiment que ce discours annonce des mesures d’exception dirigées uni­quement contre les forces d’opposition. Le pro­blème sous-jacent à ces levées de boucliers des islamistes et des forces d’opposition, c’est l’abandon de toute tentative de dialogue natio­nal. « Si les enquêtes prouvent que certains hommes politiques sont impliqués, des mesures nécessaires seront prises contre eux, quel que soit leur niveau », a déclaré Morsi. «Si je dois faire ce qu’il faut pour protéger ce pays, je le ferai et je crains d’avoir à le faire bientôt », a-t-il prévenu, ajoutant qu’il « couperait les doigts » des fautifs.

Égypte : le président Morsi menace l'opposition

Égypte : le président Morsi menace l'opposition | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Le président Morsi menace les opposants politiques de poursuites après les affrontements qui ont eu lieu à proximité du siège des Frères musulmans, vendredi 22 mars, dans la banlieue du Caire.

« Si les enquêtes prouvent que certains hommes politiques sont impliqués, des mesures nécessaires seront prises contre eux, quel que soit leur niveau. » Sur son compte Twitter et à la télévision d’État, Mohamed Morsi a envoyé un message de fermeté aux manifestants ayant pris part aux émeutes qui ont fait 160 blessés, à proximité du siège des Frères musulmans, au Caire le 22 mars.

Le président de l'Égypte affirme qu’il fera ce qu’il faut pour « protéger le pays », craignant « d’avoir à le faire bientôt ». Mais le président du Parti Liberté et Justice poursuit sur un ton beaucoup plus inquétant, en menaçant ceux qui cherchent à porter atteinte à la sécurité du pays de leur « couper les doigts ».

La justice égyptienne a convoqué lundi plusieurs politiciens et militants de l’opposition afin de les interroger au sujet de leur rôle présumé dans les actes de violence commis contre les membres des Frères musulmans, le parti du président Mohammed Morsi.

Ces convocations ont été annoncées une journée après que M. Morsi eut prévenu ses détracteurs qu’il pourrait avoir recours à des mesures d’urgence, dont il n’a pas précisé la nature exacte, pour protéger le pays.

Egypte : la peur et l'initiative changent de camp

Egypte : la peur et l'initiative changent de camp | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Les derniers évènements du 22 mars baptisés “bataille de la colline”, lors de laquelle des milliers de manifestants ont tenté de mettre à sac le Quartier Général des Frères Musulmans dans le quartier de Moqattam au Caire et l’ont fait réellement dans le quartier de Monial ou dans les villes de Mahalla, Alexandrie ou Mansoura, ont mis au grand jour les évolutions souterraines de la conscience politique des Égyptiens ces derniers mois.

 

Les policiers et les islamistes ont peur

Lors de la révolution du 25 janvier 2011, les Égyptiens disaient que le principal acquis de la révolution était qu’ils n’avaient plus peur.

 

Deux ans et deux mois après, sous le régime militaire du CSFA ou celui des Frères Musulmans et leurs alliés salafistes et jihadistes, malgré l’utilisation régulière par les forces de police de balles réelles contre des manifestants pacifiques faisant des milliers de blessés et des centaines de morts, malgré les 12 à 15’000 condamnations à la prison de manifestants, malgré les tribunaux militaires pour les civils, les violences des milices islamiques, les détentions illégales, la torture y compris à l’encontre des enfants, les centres de détentions illégaux livrés au sadisme de tortionnaires, les obligations aux tests de virginité pour les manifestantes, leurs viols fréquents, malgré les arrestations arbitraires, des procureurs aux ordres, les mensonges, les fabrications de preuves, les faux examens médicaux, les multiples lois qui restreignent ou interdisent grèves et manifestations, malgré les lois martiales et les couvre feux, malgré les chars dans les rues, devant les écoles et les usines, malgré les menaces des chefs religieux musulmans ou chrétiens que les manifestants finissent brûlés en enfer, malgré les appels de l’opposition laïque du FSN au calme et aux manifestations pacifiques, malgré sa dénonciation des manifestants qui se défendent comme ils peuvent face à la violence institutionnelle, malgré ses projets actuels de co-gouverner avec les salafistes et les Frères Musulmans, malgré tout cela, la violence policière du régime ne fait plus rentrer les gens chez eux, terrorisés, mais les fait au contraire descendre dans la rue encore plus nombreux, encore plus en colère, encore plus déterminés et conscients.

Sources claim MB mobilizing ahead of Morsy decree

Sources claim MB mobilizing ahead of Morsy decree | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Muslim Brotherhood's Guidance Bureau has allegedly issued instructions to its administrative offices to prepare all members to mobilize in support of new presidential decrees expected to be issued within hours, said anonymous sources close to the group's leadership.

Brotherhood leaders have been holding meetings since the reprisal of last week's clashes between Brothers and opposition activists in Moqattam on Friday. The sources claim that all group members have been instructed to get ready to take to the streets once President Mohamed Morsy makes his statement.

Mahmoud Hussein, Brotherhood secretary general, told Al-Masry Al-Youm that he had no information about these reports, which he claimed were rumors circulated on social media networks.

Egypt opposition fears Morsi crackdown

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi threatened on Sunday to take unspecified steps to “protect this nation” after violent demonstrations against his Muslim Brotherhood, using vague but severe language that the opposition said heralded a crackdown.


(...) “They are very scary comments,” said Khaled Dawoud, a spokesman for the National Salvation Front (NSF), an alliance of non-Islamist parties formed late last year to oppose Morsi.


“I can see language that is heading towards taking some suppressive measures,” he added.

A declaration of a state of emergency elsewhere is unlikely, said Yasser El-Shimy, Egypt analyst for the International Crisis Group, adding arrests were more probable.

“My impression is that Morsi and the Brotherhood in general have had it with the violence that is taking place and they are running out of patience,” he said.

“This is definitely the strictest he has spoken regarding the rioting,” he added. “Now Morsi feels there is enough public opinion on his side to justify taking stricter measures.”

One recent source of tension between Morsi and the opposition was his call for parliamentary elections based on a controversial election law. The vote, due to begin in late April, has been postponed by a court ruling and it is now not clear when it will happen.

Egypte: la colère des "révolutionnaires" contre les islamistes s'aggrave

Egypte: la colère des "révolutionnaires" contre les islamistes s'aggrave | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Deux ans après la chute de Hosni Moubarak, de nombreux "jeunes de la révolution" estiment n'avoir plus que la violence de rue pour s'opposer aux Frères musulmans au pouvoir en Egypte, accusés de reproduire un système répressif, sourd aux espoirs de démocratie.

"C'est devenu une guerre de rues. Chaque coup qu'ils nous portent, on le leur rend encore plus fort", lance Farid Sayyed, 24 ans, rencontré lors des affrontements des derniers jours devant le siège des Frères musulmans dans la banlieue du Caire.

 

A trois reprises en une semaine, les abords du bâtiment, dans le quartier de Moqattam, ont vu des violences entre manifestants proches de l'opposition, membres de la confrérie islamiste et policiers, qui ont fait plusieurs dizaines de blessés.

 

C'est la première fois que le siège de la confrérie est ainsi visé, preuve que le puissant mouvement islamiste et son bureau politique sont désormais identifiés comme le vrai centre du pouvoir, éclipsant le président Mohamed Morsi, pourtant issu de ses rangs.

« Moutons! Troupeau! Vous marchez derrière Badie! », sont les slogans scandés par les opposants, en référence au Guide suprême de la confrérie Mohammed Badie, accusé d’être le véritable décideur en Egypte dans l’ombre du président islamiste Mohamed Morsi .

Egypt opposition condemns violence at Brotherhood HQ

 

 

The Egyptian Social Democratic Party blamed the interior ministry for the clashes at the Islamist group's headquarters in Cairo's Moqattam district.

 

"After the attacks on unarmed protesters [including women] and journalists, the police should have arrested the thugs [who initiated the attacks], especially after videos showed their faces clearly. But the police prefer to arrest victims rather than criminals."

 

The party "warned" the interior ministry against "defending members of ruling [political group] at the expense of the people."

 

The liberal Free Egyptians Party said the events proved the existence of "organised militias that follow orders from the Muslim Brotherhood."

 

The incident showed "the real ruler of Egypt is the Brotherhood's supreme guide [Mohamed Badie] and not President Mohamed Morsi."

 

The liberal Constitution Party, lead by Mohamed ElBaradei, condemned the "criminal assaults" by Brotherhood "militias" on political activists, journalists and photographers.

 

"Pushing citizens to kill other citizens shows the rule of law has collapsed. This is a dangerous phenomenon that has erupted since the president came to power," the statement said.

 

Police used tear gas and bird shot to disperse around 3,000 protesters at the Muslim Brotherhood HQ on Sunday. Dozens of protesters, including journalist Mohamed Rashad, were arrested.

 

Violence broke out on Saturday between pro- and anti-Muslim Brotherhood protesters after a meeting between Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie and Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal at the Brotherhood HQ.

Opposition leader: We are not flirting with the army

Social Democratic Egyptian Party Chief Mohamed Abul Ghar, a leading member with the opposition coalition National Salvation Front, said the front is not flirting with the army and does not want military intervention. The only exception would be a civil war, he said, in which case the military would then step in to protect vital institutions. A number of forces opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood have pushed for military intervention to stem the growing power of Islamists, but the National Salvation Front, the main umbrella for several opposition parties and groups, has distanced itself from these calls. In an interview with the satellite TV channel Al-Jazeera Mubasher Misr on Friday, Abul Ghar said the military left the ‘political  scene” for what may be a period of years, and may be forever. He added that military cannot implement a coup. Abul Ghar talked about the NSF initiative of a shadow cabinet, saying “I don’t think it would be applied soon, but if it was, it would be just in some ministries.”

 

He explained that the front has economic and legal committees and that it does not yet have a complete program for running Egypt, reminding viewers that it was founded just months ago.

 

“Neither the parties’ ideologies nor the front members control the front or vice versa,” he said. The NSF will continue its efforts to rescue the country from the “political impasse,” Abul Ghar said. Abul Ghar confirmed the front's unclear stance with regard to elections. “I want to run for the upcoming parliamentary elections, if they are fair,” he said adding that he does not expect the opposition to take part in the elections, so long as Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim and Public Prosecutor Talaat Abdullah are in office. “No political party will be able to run Egypt on its own. There must be cooperation to find a way out from this crisis,” Abul Ghar said.

Egypt's Mussa ups the ante on Islamist government

Egypt's Mussa ups the ante on Islamist government | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

By Samer al-Atrush / Middle Esat Online

 

The Egyptian opposition is more determined than ever to boycott parliamentary elections after Islamist President Mohamed Morsi challenged a court decision delaying the polls, former Arab League chief Amr Mussa said on Thursday.

In an interview with AFP, Mussa said there had been no "serious talks" with the president on the opposition's core demand for a government of national unity despite the impact of the political deadlock on Egypt's faltering economy.

The opposition has come under strong US pressure to take part in the elections, which had been scheduled for next month, and Mussa said it might have done so had the president accepted the delay ordered by the court.

"We would have gained some time to talk about the points we are raising, and to give the government time to reconsider," he said.

The president's appeal "does reverse the situation," he said, "bringing it back to the tension around the election."

Hisham Hellyar: I refuse to accept that the current opposition is the best the country can offer | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

At the latest session of The New Arab Debates held in Al-Azhar Conference Centre on Tuesday, Egypt’s political opposition were shelled with accusations of lacking vision and plans for the country’s economic and political crisis.

Non-resident Fellow in Foreign Policy at The Brookings Institution Hisham Hellyar argued for the motion: “This House believes Egypt’s opposition has wasted its chances and let down the people.”

Hossam Fares from the Al-Dostour Party and a member of the National Salvation Front (NSF) argued that the opposition has accomplished in four months more than the Muslim Brotherhood did in 80 years.

Hellyar said Egypt’s NSF had not provided leadership or a plan to help the Egyptians move forward. “The opposition did not direct or mobilise the people. They just follow.”

Update: Kefaya calls for mass protest against activist arrests | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The prosecutor general is reportedly planning to order the arrest of 23 more anti-Brotherhood activists on charges of inciting violence in last week's Moqattam clashes. (...)

 

Condemning the decision, members of the Kefaya movement have called for a mass prayer in front of the prosecutor general's office, staging a mass demonstration and besieging the High Court. They also issued a call to storm the Media Production City.

 

In a statement issued Monday, the movement said the protest rejects the "oppression by the militias of the regime [President Mohamed Morsy's administration], representing the Muslim Brotherhood, against opposition [forces]." They said pressing charges against anti-Brotherhood activists constituted an act of oppression.

 

"You [the Brotherhood] are acting like Mubarak.You will not terrify us by filing your reports or oppressing us," the movement cautioned in its statement.

Morsi warning draws ire of Egypt oppositio

Morsi warning draws ire of Egypt oppositio | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

A warning from President Mohamed Morsi that political figures could be sanctioned if found to have stirred up unrest in Egypt drew the ire of the opposition and newspapers on Monday.

 

"If investigations prove that certain political figures are implicated, the necessary measures will be taken against them, whatever their status," Morsi said on his Twitter account on Sunday, also carried on state television.(...)

 

His warning followed violent clashes last Friday in Cairo between pro-opposition demonstrators and Islamists from Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood movement that left 160 people injured. (...)

 

"President Morsi always swings into action when the Muslim Brotherhood is under pressure, but he does nothing when his supporters attack the opposition," according to Abdel Ghafar Shokr, an NSF leader.

Al-Watan newspaper spoke of "a threat to the opposition," while Al-Masry Al-Youm accused the president of preparing "exceptional measures" against the opposition and of trying to intimidate the media.

The Brotherhood's lawyer Abdelmoneim Abdel Maksud, meanwhile, said he has filed suits against 169 people, including known political figures, over last week's violence, without giving names.

Egypt-actus's insight:

Egypt's National Salvation Front (NSF) announced on Sunday that it has formed a permanent committee to defend women's rights and address the attack on their entitlement to these rights.

“The targeting of women is in fact an attack on the identity of the nation. It aborts the goals of the revolution, which were highlighted in the calls for freedom, dignity and social justice,” said a statement issued by the NSF.

The statement added that "recent months have seen an unprecedented uptick in the severity of aggression on women and their rights in Egypt."

The statement said that violence against women is part of the violence that is currently inflicted upon all Egyptians by the ruling authority.

Egypte : vives réactions de l'opposition à des menaces de Morsi | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Les réactions de l'opposition aux propos du président Morsi lancés dimanche 24 mars ne se sont pas fait attendre. Le président islamiste avait menacé sur son compte Twitter de "prendre des mesures" contre les hommes politiques qui seraient responsables des violents affrontements qui ont eu lieu vendredi devant le siège des Frères musulmans, le parti dont il est issu.

Le porte-parole du Front du salut national (FSN), la principale coalition de l'opposition, a alors répondu "qu'on peut s'attendre au pire. Les menaces de Morsi signifient la mort de l'Etat de droit. Il démontre qu'il est seulement le président des Frères musulmans". 

Pour le quotidien Al-Watan, ces propos sont une "menace pour l'opposition", et le journal Al-Masry Al-Youm accuse le président de vouloir "prendre des mesures d'exception" contre ses opposants et de chercher à intimider les médias.

Egypte: pour les Frères musulmans, l'opposition a échoué en politique

Un important dirigeant des Frères musulmans, dont est issu le président égyptien Mohamed Morsi, a accusé samedi l'opposition de recourir à la violence après s'être révélée incompétente en politique, au lendemain d'affrontements violents devant le siège de la confrérie.

L'adjoint du Guide suprême de la confrérie, Rachad al-Bayoumi, a qualifié de "tragédie" les violents affrontements qui ont éclaté vendredi entre des manifestants de l'opposition et des islamistes et qui ont fait plus de 160 blessés, près du siège des Frères musulmans dans le quartier du Moqattam.

"Si (ces violences) prouvent quoi que ce soit, c'est le caractère vil (des manifestants). Je tiens pour politiquement et légalement responsables ceux qui ont appelé à de telles manifestations", a affirmé à l'AFP M. Bayoumi.
"Cela révèle leur échec à mener une confrontation politique propre", a-t-il ajouté.

The ministries in such a coalition Cabinet would be divided equally among the three parties, and Wafd Party head al-Sayed al-Badawy would serve as prime minister, the sources suggested. However, no agreements have been made as yet, they added.

NSF leading figure Amr Moussa said a meeting between the three parties was postponed from Thursday to sometime next week to discuss the possibility of forming a new Cabinet, and the delay in the parliamentary elections.

Supporters and opponents of Egypt's president clash in south, forcing him to cut visit short

Supporters and opponents of Egypt's president clash in south, forcing him to cut visit short | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

 Police fired tear gas to disperse thousands of supporters and opponents of President Mohammed Morsi during clashes that erupted on Saturday as he launched development projects in southern Egyptian where residents have long complained of being neglected by the central government.

Morsi was in Sohag province to unveil a housing project and new education complex when thousands of anti-government protesters tried to storm the hall where he was meeting with local officials. The rioting came as Morsi was trying to reach out to residents of Sohag, one of Egypt's poorest southern cities.

Under long-time ruler Hosni Mubarak, who was ousted in a popular uprising two years ago, the southern area known as al-Saeed was underdeveloped and impoverished. Businessmen close to Mubarak's family were blamed for orchestrating economic reform that liberalized the economy, but left the country's poor hard-pressed to reap the benefits of economic growth.

Morsi sought to assure residents there that the era of corruption, deprivation and neglect had ended.

In one of the country's high-profile corruption cases, former Tourism Minister Zuheir Garana and ex-Housing Minister Ahmed Maghrabi were found not guilty Saturday in a case involving the sale of state land for cut-rate prices in the country's prized resort areas along the Red Sea.

Brotherhood leader says Egypt's opposition will participate in elections

Brotherhood leader says Egypt's opposition will participate in elections | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), Helmi Al-Gazzar, said on Saturday that the Party will only acquire a simple majority in the upcoming elections, not an absolute majority, pointing that the Brotherhood's popularity has not been affected by media attacks.

Gazzar believes that the FJP will form a coalition government after acquiring the majority of parliament seats, he said in an interview with a local newspaper.

The prominent leader of the Brotherhood's Party said that Egypt's Salvation Front are about to pronounce their participation in elections.

He added that the Shura Council's (upper house of the parliament) decision to draft a new law for elections comes from their wish not to postpone the elections.

"The Freedom and Justice Party insists on running the elections per capita, it only accepted to apply the electoral lists under pressure and to bring about consensus," Gazzar said.

Gazzar accused the "anti-revolution businessmen" of being the reason behind the turn of peaceful protests into violent clashes.

The Brotherhood's leader added, "Three state institutions must be distanced from political affiliations and only belong to the bodies they represent; the police, the army and the judiciary."
