EOHR Condemns the Bombings of Al-Zaytoun

May 12th, 2009 by Editor


The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) expresses its deepest condemnation of the explosion which took place near Al-Azraa Church in Zaytoun area on Sunday evening 10/5/2009
It stresses that such bombing is a grave violation to the right to life which is the most sacred right guaranteed under the Egyptian Constitution and international covenants on human rights, which requires the security  to speed in the prosecution of offenders and brining them to trial before their natural judge, without random arrests or any violation of human rights.
In this regard, EOHR expresses its fears that such incident would make the government accelerate in issuing the Anti-terrorism law which leads to the legalisation of the State of Emergency and makes Terrorism law an exact copy of the Emergency law and the exceptional State of Emergency will become a  permanent case at a time in which the nation was looking forward for the abolition of the State of Emergency and returning back to the Constitutional legality.
