The Arab Organization for Human Rights in Britain warns those who oppose the regime of the risk oppression

The Arab Organization for Human Rights in Britain condemned the killing of Hishām Barakāt, considering it the result of an equation pursued by the current Egyptian government. The Organization stressed that the absence of justice since the 3rd July revolution led to a growth in organized violence pursued by the state. It called for the opening of a transparent and fair file on the killing of Attorney General, without exploiting his death to instigate a vengeance campaign through the use of media. The International Community calls also for the monitoring of Egyptian authorities that are keeping thousands of detainees hostage in prison.
