Nasser Amin Travel ban
The Egyptian organization for human rights expresses deep concern over the continuation of the restriction policy against the human rights defenders and recently what was faced by the Activist / NASSER AMIN while travelling to Geneva as Amen’s Passport had been withdrawn by the passport officer as this situation consider to be one of the course of actions against the human rights defenders through prohibition of travel and on the top of those defender Israa Abd El fatah (Human right activist) , Hossam Aldin Ali and Gamal eid in addition to the closure order of “Nadeem Center for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence and Torture” without any substantive justification for this decision.
In this context, the Egyptian organization for human rights believes that the Egyptian Government has the duty to work seriously on the amendment and reviewing of its policies toward the human rights defenders.
The Egyptian organization for human rights believes that this matter can’t be achieved except the state guarantee of the state to an atmosphere of freedom to the right of Movement and ensure those rights and therefore the Egyptian government has to stop the restriction policy against the human rights defenders as they are doing their mission to protect the essential human rights and freedoms which are stipulated in the global human rights conventions and the Egyptian constitution issued in 2014.
For his Part, Hafez Abu Seada, head of the Egyptian Organization for human rights, confirmed that the defenders of human rights had endured the consequences of their defense concerning humans and citizens’ rights at local level as they faced pressure and intimidation to carry out this Semitic mission.
Abou Seada added that after 25th January and 30th June revolutions the government has to deliberate the respect for those defenders and set a legal framework that prohibit the security restrictions upon them concerning their political and legal points of view.
