The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) denounces the assault on engineer Hamdy Al-Dakharany, lawyer and human rights’ activist Najad Al-Borai and Abu Al-Ezz Al-Hareery. The organization asks for an immediate investigation and the announcement of any results for the public.
Al-Boray suffered from physical assault as he was exiting the State Council. The assaulted was sprayed with water and got shouted at. Similarly, Al-Fakharany was sworn at by the proponents of president Morsi’s decision to reassemble the Parliament and his clothes were torn as a result of the physical assault. As for Al-Hareery, he was assaulted as he was passing by Tahrir square by a group of Muslim brotherhood protestors.
Hence, EOHR accentuates its condemnation for the brutal assaults that people with different opinions suffer from. These assaults are seen by EOHR as a serious threat to the rule of law. Thus, the organization calls for the immediate investigation in these incidences in order to reach a state where personal rights and freedoms are regularly upheld.
Furthermore, EOHR implores president Morsi to guarantee the protection of intellectuals, writers, human rights activists and those who possess an opinion that is seemingly opposing to Islamism.
