Les femmes détenues dans les prisons égyptiennes victimes d'abus physiques et psychologiques de la part des forces de sécurité

Les femmes détenues dans les prisons égyptiennes victimes d'abus physiques et psychologiques de la part des forces de sécurité | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

By Enas Hamed

In Egypt, women who have been arrested and human rights organizations are raising their voices about the physical and psychological abuse women are subjected to in prisons, detention centers and police departments.
While the number of women arrested since the June 30 events is unknown, according to the Wiki Thawra website 21,317 people were arrested between June 30 and Dec. 31, 2013. This figure includes women, some of whom reported being subject to abuses during and after their arrest.

Tasneem was one of these detainees. A fourth-year student at the Faculty of Medicine at Al-Azhar University, she was arrested on campus on Dec. 30 during a protest organized by the Al-Azhar student group against police having permission to enter university campuses. She told Al-Monitor that a number of security members chased her and grabbed her by her clothes. Tasneem said although she told the security force members she would surrender without their pushing her, one of them dragged her by the hand to force her into a police car. When she fell to the ground, she said nearly 15 security officers gathered around her, kicking her in the back and abdomen and pulled her to the car, where an officer hit her with a baton on sensitive body parts and slapped her face multiple times.

Un récit de la torture pratiquée dans la prison de Wadi al-Natrum

Un récit de la torture pratiquée dans la prison de Wadi al-Natrum | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Human beings have been dignified in all religions, which venerate humanity and forbid the torture of humans and their detention without evidence.
Their rights to freedom of expression and to mobility have been granted, except in Egypt, where the meaning of humanity has been shattered at the hands of injustice and oppression that overlook all laws and traditions.
What law or religion do we follow or abide by now, we do not know anymore. Where is Egypt heading?
We put in your hands a catastrophic situation in order for you to learn about our suffering, and to become our companions in putting an end to this suffering. (...)
We ask you, our families and the Egyptian people, to continue your struggle and to not be deterred in demanding your dignity and rights by what happened to us. Do not allow fear to come between you and do not forget the rights of the injured, the martyred and the detained. We put this responsibility in your hands, knowing that you will be up to it, for we will not allow the Egyptian people to experience what we experienced.
We call on the local and international media to scream out on our behalf calling for the rights of the detainees and their immediate release.
We call on Egyptian and international civil society organizations to take to court Interim President Adly Mansour, Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi, Defense Minister Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim, the head of prisons department, the head of Wadi al-Natrun prison and all officers, soldiers and state security personnel that participated in our torture on November 13, 2013.
We ask you to present them to courts in Egypt and to the International Criminal Court for having permitted our detention for all this time without any evidence, and for torturing us and refusing to allow us to defend ourselves, in a clear violation of local law and international agreements to which Egypt is a signatory.

Selon le témoignage de proches et d'avocats, et contrairement aux affirmations du ministère de l'Intérieur égyptien, des activistes affirment avoir subi en prison des tortures le mois dernier.

Secular activists arrested last month on the third anniversary of the revolt against Egyptian autocrat Hosni Mubarak say they have been tortured, some with electric shocks, relatives and lawyers who have seen them said.

 

The Interior Ministry denied any abuses. If independently confirmed, the allegations would suggest police have reverted to some of the practices blamed for stoking the 2011 uprising.

 

The latest arrests have increased criticism of the army-backed authorities by liberals and leftists who supported the decision to remove President Mohamed Mursi and who have turned a blind eye to a state crackdown on his Islamist supporters.

 

Lawyers say police detained about 1,000 people, including some teenage boys, on January 25, when 49 people, mostly Islamists, were killed during anti-government marches. Thousands rallied in support of the authorities on the same day.

 

The torture and humiliation began in police stations and continued in some of Egypts most notorious prisons and detention centers, relatives and lawyers told Reuters.

 

"He told me he was hanging by his arms from the ceiling and beaten very badly. He was taken to a room and blindfolded so he could hear the screams of men who were being tortured," said Hoda Mahmoud, referring to her detained husband Khaled al-Sayed.

Des prisonniers politiques dénoncent les mauvaises conditions de détention en Egypte (privation de médicaments vitaux, torture, agression sexuelle...) | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

A number of detainees — mostly arrested on charges related to the new protest law —and their lawyers have highlighted the mistreatment of prisoners in Egypt, including poor conditions, withholding of vital medication, torture and sexual assault.

During a court appearance on Sunday, former Parliamentarian Essam Sultan, who is in jail for insulting the judiciary, said he is being subjected to torture in prison and is suffering from the cold conditions, only being permitted to wear an under shirt. Sultan also said that during his 16-day incarceration, he was only given dirty water and no food.

Mahmoud Belal, a lawyer at the Egyptian Center for Economic and Social Rights, posted on his personal Twitter account that a group of young detainees in court Sunday reported they are being tortured and electrocuted. Belal said that police officers threatened the detainees with torture in front of the lawyers and that the prosecution refused to intervene. He added that the prosecution is not allowing lawyers to document the violations against detainees.

Activist Hassan Mustafa sentenced to two years

Activist Hassan Mustafa sentenced to two years | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Rana Muhammad Taha | Daily news Egypt

 

Alexandrian political activist Hassan Mustafa was sentenced to two years in prison on Tuesday. He was arrested on 21 January, accused of physically attacking a prosecutor.

Hamdy Khalaf, Mustafa’s lawyer and one of the witnesses who testified in court, said: “We were surprised with the verdict. It is an insult to lawyers.” Khalaf, alongside two other lawyers, testified in court denying that Mustafa attacked prosecutor Ahmed Darwish in their presence.

“Darwish’s medical report stated that he suffers from ‘a reddened left cheek’,” Khalaf said, adding that the report is not proof that Mustafa slapped Darwish. “The problem is not with the medical report; it’s with the prosecutor’s false accusations. This reflects all that is wrong with the Egyptian prosecution system.”

Khalaf stated that the verdict will be appealed.

Mahienour El-Massry, a political activist in Alexandria, said that protesters are gathering outside Al-Mansheya Court. El-Massry was with Mustafa during the incident when he allegedly attackedDarwish.

“There’s going to be a protest condemning the verdict,” she said. “People are already rallying up.”

Mustafa allegedly slapped Darwish after going with three human rights lawyers and three activists to the Al-Mansheya Court Complex on 21 January to check on detained protesters arrested after clashes that followed the trial of police officers accused of killing protesters on 25 January. He is also facing charges of smuggling detainees and inciting violence in Al-Mansheya.

He has gone on hunger strike twice in protest over his detention.

Mustafa is a well-known activist in Alexandria. He was first arrested on 6 April 2008, during a demonstration supporting the Mahalla workers’ strike.

Prosecution inquires on detention and torture of protesters | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

The prosecution of Cairo's Heliopolis, headed by Judge Ibrahim Saleh, ordered on Sunday the criminal investigations of five of the accused of torturing and detaining victims at the presidential palace on December 5.

The prosecution has already received the testimonies of some of the victims, reported the Middle East News Agency.

Some of the people detained during the 5 December clashes have accused the Muslim Brotherhood of torturing them.

Supporters of President Mohamed Mursi have forcibly dispersed a sit-in held against the president at the presidential palace.

The opponents of Mursi have staged a sit-in to protest a decree he issued in November giving him sweeping powers and shielding his decisions from judicial challenges.

The clashes resulted in the death of ten people and the injury of hundreds

Child abuse in Egypt: 91 children detained after Cairo’s latest clashes

Child abuse in Egypt: 91 children detained after Cairo’s latest clashes | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

In its latest report, the Egyptian Coalition for Child’s Rights (ECCR) stated that in recent clashes following the second anniversary of the January 25 revolution, 91 children under 18 years of age were detained by Cairo police in inhumane conditions.

The statement denounced the use of children in clashes, and the state and society’s failure to offer them basic rights of protection.

Egypt-actus's insight:

“The worst part is that some of the children were kept in Central Security Forces camps at Tora and Madinet As-Salam,” Ahmed Meslhey, a lawyer at ECCR, told Daily News Egypt. “They were beaten with police batons and some had army shoeprints on their faces.”

Many children were interrogated by the police without the presence of a lawyer or adult relatives before they were released. “According to the law they should have been interrogated within 24 hours of their arrest, but all children were detained for four days before seeing a prosecutor,” added Meslhey.

The statement also explained that the children were interrogated by a general prosecution and not a child’s prosecution which violates the rights laid out in article 122 of the Egyptian Child’s Law.

The children were accused of “assembling on the streets, obstructing public transportation, attacking state employees, use of force, thuggery, beating and resisting policemen” among other accusations. The statement also criticized the distribution of the children over five prosecutions in five different areas, making it difficult for lawyers to attend interrogations.

Contrairement à certains rapports récents, le ministère de l'Intérieur nie que la torture soit pratiquée dans les prisons égyptiennes

Contrairement à certains rapports récents, le ministère de l'Intérieur nie que la torture soit pratiquée dans les prisons égyptiennes | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Assistant interior minister for human rights, Abu Bakr Abdel Karim repeated Friday the ministry’s denial of cases of torture inside prisons, as the number of accounts by tortured detainees rises.

Egyptian news website Mada Masr published Friday an English translation of a testimony of Islam Abu Ghazala, who had been arrested on October 6, 2013 during an anti-government protest, detailing the systematic torture he endured in Wadi al-Natroun prison.

“As the policemen made us crawl on the floor, they followed us with sticks, belts, and water pipes, lashing our backs to force us to crawl faster,” Ghazala said. In early January he started a hunger strike in protest of his treatment.

Ghazala’s testimony is one of the many reports about torture in prisons that came out this week.

For example, prominent activists Khaled el-Sayed and Nagy Kamel were “stripped of their clothes, hit with water, and savagely beaten,” during their detention at Al-Azbakeya police station, according to the activist Facebook page “Freedom for the Brave.”

The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information published a statement on Wednesday, calling for “an immediate, independent investigation into growing claims of the brutal torture and sexual assault of detainees held in prisons and police stations in Egypt after their arrest in demonstrations on January 25th.” Sixteen prominent Egyptian human rights organizations signed the statement.

Another six political groups issued a statement Wednesday condemning the accounts of brutal torture and sexual assault in prison. Among the undersigning parties were the Dostour Party, Hamdeen Sabbahi’s Popular Current, the Egypt Freedom Party, and the Egyptian Social Democratic Party.

However, the Interior Ministry has repeatedly denied that any torture or violations of human rights has happened in prison and has welcomed human rights groups for inspections.

“Anyone who faced practices of torture has to file a complaint [with the Interior Ministry], and it will be addressed,” said assistant Minister Abdel Karim  in a phone call with CBC channel, claiming that the Interior Ministry does not accept any violations.

He added that a delegation from the state-appointed National Council of Human Rights (NCHR) visited a number of prisons on Thursday to ensure human rights were respected.

NCHR member Kamal Abbas said Friday that a delegation from the NCHR, based on its legal and constitutional mandate, is scheduled to visit Abou Zaabl Prison this week to assess reports of tortured detainees.

Abbas added to CBC Extra Channel that the NCHR has received several complaints from prisoners’ relatives regarding the torture of detainees.

Des femmes torturées et victimes d'abus sexuels dans les prisons égyptiennes

Des femmes torturées et victimes d'abus sexuels dans les prisons égyptiennes | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egypt's Women against the Coup movement has revealed that the authorities arrested 200 women in December and January and accused the interior ministry of torture and sexual abuse. "We registered the arrest of 200 women since the ratification of the Demonstration Act, which requires prior permission from the interior ministry for any demonstration and imposes severe retribution against dissidents," said a report by the group.

According to Turkish news agency Anadolu, the women's movement pointed out that female students from Al-Azhar University top the list of prisoners, which includes girls under 15 years old and elderly ladies of 60-plus.

The movement's report noted that most arrests took place on the last Friday of December when 40 women were taken into custody. "Criminal sentences handed down in absentia started to appear in January," the report said. "Six female students from Al-Azhar were sentenced to one year in prison and six from Nasser City were sentenced to five years."

Women against the Coup said that violations against the women prisoners "started from the minute that they were arrested"; the report also uses the term "kidnapped". "They were beaten by batons, their scarfs were removed and they were pulled by the hair; clothes were ripped off and they were sexually molested by officers who touched their private parts," it alleged.

When the prisoners arrived at police stations they were obliged to strip off their clothes and, again, police officers touched their private parts and beat them before putting them in "inappropriate" cells. "After they were taken to Al-Qanater Prison," claims the report, "the women faced virginity tests and were mixed with common criminals, who also attacked them."

 CAIRO: There is no torture or detention or any kind of violence practiced inside Egyptian prisons, said Minister of Justice Adel Abdel Hamid, Tuesday.

Abdel Hamid’s statement came during a meeting with a delegation of the International Federation for Human Rights, in response to a question about alleged torture cases inside the Egyptian prisons.

The delegation asked the minister about the reason behind holding the trials of former Mubarak-era and the Muslim Brotherhood figures in the Police Academy, to which he responded saying that it is due purely to security reasons.

The meeting aimed to discuss cases regarding human rights issues in Egypt, including human trafficking and illegal immigration, as well as to develop a comprehensive national strategy to deal with these issues through realistic solutions.

Des centaines d'enfants égyptiens victimes d'incarcérations illégales et de tortures

Des centaines d'enfants égyptiens victimes d'incarcérations illégales et de tortures | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Les prisons égyptiennes se remplissent de mineurs. Des enfants de moins de 15 ans qui, selon la loi, ne devraient pas rester derrière les barreaux avec des détenus adultes. La pratique est pourtant courante depuis plus d’un an en Égypte. Elle s’est amplifiée depuis les manifestations consécutives au deuxième anniversaire de la révolution, le 25 janvier dernier, estiment plusieurs observateurs. (...)

Selon l'organisation internationale de défense des droits de l'Homme, Human Rights Watch, plus de 300 mineurs ont été emprisonnés illégalement en 2012, sans qu'il y ait eu procès. Ces enfants ne sont pas forcément des gamins des rues. (...)

Beaucoup de jeunes adolescents, proches du groupe de supporters des "Ultras" et de celui, plus politique, récemment constitué des "Black Bloc", sont en première ligne des manifestations, rapporte Sonia Dridi. "C’est devenu la nouvelle activité de ces gamins : aller dans les manifs et s’en prendre à la police. Les ‘Ultras’ des stades, qu’ils vénèrent, véhiculent une haine du pouvoir et de la police. Sans oublier qu’ils voient à la maison leurs parents désœuvrés et écœurés par le gouvernement. Mais il ne faut pas faire d’amalgame avec ceux qui provoquent les agressions sexuelles contre les femmes, par exemple."

Selon l’avocat Mostafa el-Alfy, les jeunes sont arrêtés aveuglément, et servent d’alibi : "aucune force de l’ordre n’oserait pénétrer l’avenue Mohamed-Mahmoud [qui mène à la place Tahrir] et arrêter les manifestants au milieu de la foule. En arrêtant des mineurs, ils cherchent à prouver aux yeux des citoyens qu’ils font leur travail, attrapent les criminels et tous ceux qui sèment le chaos dans le pays depuis un an", explique dans une interview au journal "Egypt Independent" cet avocat travaillant pour l’Egyptian Center for Economic and Social Rights, une association de défense des droits de l’Homme.

Egypte : 37 ans de prison et 296 millions de dollars d’amende pour Ahmad Ezz

Egypte : 37 ans de prison et 296 millions de dollars d’amende pour Ahmad Ezz | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

(Agence Ecofin) - Le patron le plus influent de la dernière période Moubarak, numéro 1 de l’acier, avait fait fortune en reprenant une aciérie d’Etat en déclin et en concluant ensuite une série d’accords commerciaux illégaux.

L’ancien ministre de l’Industrie, Ibrahim Mohammadein, qui l’avait aidé dans cette opération, et dans d’autres, écope d’un an de prison avec sursis et d’une amende de près de 100 millions $ US.

Arrêté quelques jours après la chute du régime Moubarak, Ahmad Ezz était un proche du fils Gamal Moubarak. Très impopulaire, il symbolisait le mélange des affaires et de la politique qui a fini par pourrir le régime et soulever la colère de la rue.

NCWR acquires release of 22 detained children in Tanta

NCWR acquires release of 22 detained children in Tanta | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

Egypt’s National Council for Women Rights (NCWR) said on Saturday that it acquired the release of 22 discriminatorily detained children who were pending investigation in Tanta’s police stations.

The Council issued a statement saying that it has sent a memorandum to Tanta’s attorney general of appeals asking for the release of the arrested children.

The Council based its argument on the absence of any reason for their detention. Furthermore, the detention of children under the legal age is contrary to the Egyptian and international law.

"It is a humanitarian issue which agitates all Egyptians. It is also a clear flagrant violation of child rights, the law and human rights," the Council said stressing that it adopts the issue of releasing all children detained under the legal age.

Egypte: La grande évasion avortée

Al Qarra – En marge des manifestations qui font rage dans la ville de Suez, la police a réussi à maîtriser une tentative d’évasion de plusieurs centaines de détenus.

Les détenus sachant que la police était occupée par les milliers de manifestants qui l’affrontent depuis plusieurs jours, ont mis le feu aux parties boisées de leurs cellules.

Le feu s’est rapidement propagé dans la toute la prison causant ainsi de nombreux dégâts. La police alertée a pu se rendre sur les lieux pour maîtriser l’incendie et maintenir tous les détenus dans l’enceinte de la prison d’Ataga.

Cette tentative d’évasion intervient au moment où une partie de la population égyptienne tente de déstabiliser le régime du président Mohamed Morsi. Le président a d’ailleurs déclaré l’état d’urgence pour les 30 prochains jours dans plusieurs villes du pays comme Port-Saïd ou Suez.

Ces quatre derniers jours près de 12 personnes ont trouvé la mort dans des affrontements avec la police dans des villes situées sur les rives du Canal de Suez.
