EOHR condemns the assault on Khaled Daoud , a spokesman for the Constitution Party and former speaker of the ” National Salvation Front”; as he was stabbed with a knife by Muslim Brotherhood protestors on Friday evening.

This incident took place while he was driving at Kasr el-Aini heading to Al-Mokattam; as a demonstration of dozens of MB supporters intercepted the road. As soon as they have identified Khaled Daoud, they smashed his car and attacked him with white weapons resulting in two cuts on his face and one on his hand. Daoud stressed that some of the protesters had beaten him all over his body, and accordingly he was transferred to Abou el-Rish hospital.

Moreover, EOHR asserts that what is happening is considered to be a violation of the right to life; as that collides fundamentally with human dignity. Also, the Organization regards that as a provocation to a wide range of the Egyptian populace.

In this regard, EOHR demands a prompt and urgent investigation to reveal the main perpetrator of that incident and to present him to the public opinion; as the perpetrator should be punished to be a deterrent to whomever is tempted to destabilize the security of the Egyptian State or/and terrorize the safe citizens.

From his side, Hafez Abu Saada, President of EOHR, confirmed that the current fervent violence which presides over the political arena will not be a haven to solve all the problems facing Egypt; as there must be peaceful and constructive dialogue to turn a new leaf to restore the progress of building the modern state of Egypt.
