On May 21, 2011, the lawyers of the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) attended the court session of General Habeb Al Adly, the Ex-Minister of Interior, and his aides. EOHR lawyers called for the civil rights of 22 martyrs and injured victims of the revolution of the twenty-fifth of January. The lawyers filed the lawsuit no. 1227/2011, Kasr Al Nile Criminal Court, which will be discussed by Judge Adel Abdel Salam Goma, in Al Tagamoa Al Khames.
The prosecutor general also accused General Habeb Al Adly, the Ex-Minister of Interior, and his aides of killing the protesters on purpose. These commanders gave orders to the lower rank officers to shoot the protesters who were against the deteriorated circumstances in Egypt.
Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR emphasized on the civil claim right according to the article no. 27/1 of the Egyptian criminal law. According to this article, those who got damaged in a crime have the right to claim for their civil right and that claim has to be mentioned in a complaint, spoken or written, submitted to the prosecutor general office. The complaint must mention clearly calling for a specific compensation. So, the damaged protesters, dead or injured, can claim for their civil rights. Abu Seada also emphasized that EOHR filed this case in the framework of its continuous efforts for facing the human rights’ violations. EOHR paid the court lawsuit filing fees for 22 martyrs and injured victims countrywide.
