EOHR condemns the assassination of the young Egyptian guy Mohamed Ahmed Mohamed at the hands of an armed group affiliated to the organization Islamic Youth Shura Council in Libya in a football stadium with a blatant violation of the right to life, freedom and personal security. The Egyptian Organization requires the Libyan authorities to intervene in order to stop these acts and to protect the Egyptians living in Libya. It also requires the Egyptian government to communicate with the Libyan authorities concerned to protect Egyptians in the light of the unsafe period that the “brotherly” state is witnessing.

An armed group affiliated to the organization Islamic Youth Shura Council brought a young Egyptian guy “Mohamed Ahmed Mohamed” to a football stadium in Derna by a small truck; then one of them announced in the presence of the public that the guy would have been killed and stolen, and another one shot the Egyptian from behind and killed him.

EOHR condemns this abject criminal incident and calls on the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to take a firm and resolute stand towards these treacherous acts faced by the Egyptian workers in Libya and confirming the absence of the rule of law. The Egyptian Organization also offers sincere condolences to the family of the Egyptian guy, advocating that God inspires patience and fortitude. EOHR stresses that between the Egyptian government’s priorities there are the protection of citizens at home and abroad and their provision with the due security and welfare. The government, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Egyptian embassy in Libya should hold the responsibility to provide citizens with the due security and welfare. Moreover, the Egyptian Organization demands the Egyptian authorities for respecting Egyptian workers, and provide them with the due security and protection. At the same time it requires the Egyptian government to intervene in order to conclude an agreement with the Libyan authorities to provide protection to the Egyptian workers there and to work for the repatriation of all the Egyptians living there.

Hafez Abo Saada, president of the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights, asserted that what happened in Libya is a crime beyond the scope of law and it needs a firm and resolute investigation. The president also demands the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to implement its role to protect Egyptians in Libya, asserting that they produce and build in that country and therefore the authorities must respect them and ensure their rights.
