Human rights for human rights observers

February 4, 2011

On Thursday 3. february, Egyptian military police raided the Hisham Mubarak Law Center in Cairo. An Amnesty International representative, a delegate from Human Rights Watch and others at the center were arrested.

At this crucial moment in the history of modern Egypt, it is more important than ever that human rights observers are allowed to work freely. The Egyptian people does of course deserve to have their human rights taken seriously. So do human rights observers.

Call on the Egyptian government to release the detained human rights workers and stop the crackdown on the civil society immediately!

UPDATE: Egyptian authorities have released all the foreign activists, human rights workers and journalists who were detained in the raid on Thursday 3. February. I am not sure whether any of the Egyptian nationals are still being held.
