Egypt: ICJ and others urge UN Human Rights Council action

The International Commission of Jurists has joined other non-governmental organisations to urge the UN Human Rights Council to take action on the situation in Egypt.


The organisations urge the Human Rights Council to adopt a resolution that clearly and unequivocally condemns the ongoing crackdown and increasing restrictions to basic freedoms in Egypt and calls upon the Government of Egypt to fully respect its human rights obligations and to ensure accountability and justice for past and ongoing gross human rights violations.
