EOHR supports Mahatat Misr

February 22nd, 2012 by Editor

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) denounces cutting the broadcast of Mahatat Misr talk show and supports the working team of the program that provides vital information to the public. What happened is considered as an attack against the freedom of expression.

When the media specialist Moataz Matar was on air on February 21, 2012, the administration of Modern Satellite Channel cut the broadcast without any justification. The talk show working team went on a protest in the studio and filed a police report against the channel administration.

Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR, stated that the incident represents an indicator to the return of the violations against the freedom of expression after the Egyptian revolution. The freedom of expression and providing the public with access to information are essential human rights, according to the standards of human rights.
