The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) filed the complaint no. 10802, year 2011, against the police officer Mohamed Sobhi Shinnawi, who appeared in a video shooting the civil protesters in Tahrir Square among a group of the Central Security Troops.  Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR talked about the violence incident and the involved troops in Baladna Belmasry talk show on the On TV channel.

In this concern, EOHR calls the police troops for self-control and dealing peacefully with the civil protesters according to the constitutional declaration, local and international standards of peaceful assembly. These practices violates the principals of using guns by the law enforcement officers and the crime confrontation conference of the UN, held in Havana, on August 27, 1990, the international covenant against torture and the human rights universal declaration.

EOHR also calls the prosecutor general office for opening an immediate investigation on the violence incident in order to take the perpetrators to accountability, in Cairo and the governorates, according to the Egyptian laws and the international covenants for human rights. The investigation should cover the period from November 19 to 22, 2011.
