Mr.  Hafez Abu Seada, Secretary-General of EOHR, at the conclusion of his letter to Dr. Meselhi, called for the following:

 
I: Giving  the greatest opportunity to study the bill  and listen to the point of view of those who undertake the civil work in
Egypt.

 
II: Taking into account the bill prepared by the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights and Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies and a number of other organizations in November 2008, as an alternative to the current law No. 84 of 2002.

 EOHR sent a copy of the bill  to Dr. Meselhi

Dear Dr. Ali Meselhi

 

Minister of Social Solidarity


I have read with deepest worries what has been published in  Rose Al-Youssef newspaper on
Thursday 3/9/2009 on the new governmental bill related to NGOs, as it imposes such restrictions on civil society organizations in Egypt in a clear violation for Constitution and international covenants concerned with human rights.

  

It is clear that the basic philosophy of the bill is a restrictive philosophy, as the bill imposes more restrictions on NGOs through the dominance of executive and administrative authorities.   

  

For example, the bill violates the right of NGOs  to the freedom of  meeting, organizing and establishment , as it expanded the powers of General Federation of NGOs. According to the explanatory memorandum for the bill, it is confirmed  that the administrative authority has to obtain the approval of the General Federation of NGOs in such crucial decisions related to NGOs especially dissolution decision. Also the bill indicated to determine a regular framework for international and regional aids and grants  under the control of General Federation of NGOs, the matter  which is considered a new restriction imposed on foreign fund for NGOs.  

  

Other negative aspects included in the bill is restricting the activity of NGO in only one field and exempting NGOs from sales tax, whereas NGOs should be exempted from all types of charges, taxes and customs.

  

However, it should be noted that there are four positive points included in the bill represented as follows:

  

First: The abolition of the dispute settlement committee

 

secondly: Allowing  NGOs  to receive fund from inside ( from Egypt) to support resources, in this regard, the businessmen and private sector shall help in this concern according  to the principle of partnership between different sectors. 

 

Third: Organizing the work of NGOs and foreign organizations in Egypt.

 

Fourth: Monitoring NGOs (which have public utility) by the Central Auditing Organization in the realization of the principle of transparency and accountability.

  
In the light of the above mentioned, I called for two things:

 

 

I-Giving  the greatest opportunity to study the bill  and listen to the point of view of those who undertake the civil work in Egypt.

 
II: Taking into account the bill prepared by the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights and Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies and a number of other organizations in November 2008, as an alternative to the current law No. 84 of 2002, which bases on the international standards concerned with human rights especially on  the right to organize .

 

Best Regards

 

 

 

Hafez Abu Seada 

Secretary General
