EOHR calls for providing the human rights safeguards within the century’s most famous trial

February 19th, 2012 by Editor

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) expresses worry for the controversy on transfer of the former president Mubarak to Mazrat Tora Prison, where medical safeguards are absent. So, EOHR calls the Supreme Council for Armed Forces and the Prosecutor General to provide the former president with the human rights safeguards according to the international standards, including healthcare and medication.  EOHR calls for providing health care and medication for all the prisoners countrywide. The prisoners also should be allowed to cost their medication and surgeries, if conducted in private hospitals, outside the prisons.

Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR, stated that the controversy on transfer of the former president Mubarak to Mazrat Tora Prison is politically justified, but the former president’s health situation must be taken into account. Political verdicts that do not comply with his health conditions should not be allowed. The court verdicts should comply with the international standards of human rights, specially the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners.
