Today's mass trial of 230 defendants and thirty-nine minors  violates Egypt's international human rights obligations.

Among the defendants is well-known activist and blogger Ahmed Douma, who spearheaded the 25 January 2011 Egyptian uprising.

The EU calls on the Egyptian authorities to abide by their international obligations, to uphold the right to a fair trial and safeguard due legal process.

دعم الاتحاد الأوروبي لمواجهة الأزمة السورية

بروكسيل، 3 فبراير/شباط 2016

أضحت الأزمة السورية أسوء كارثة إنسانية يشهدها العالم. في هذا السياق، وفي إطار الجهود الدولية المبذولة لمواجهة الأزمة السورية، يتصدر الاتحاد الأوروبي قائمة الجهات المانحة بما يفوق 5 مليار يورو يدفعها الاتحاد ودوله الأعضاء على نحو جماعي في مجال المساعدة الإنسانية والإنمائية والاقتصادية واستتباب الاستقرار.

The spiral of ever increasing violence in Eastern Ukraine needs to stop. The fighting provoked by the continued separatist offensive, notably around Debaltseve, is causing great human suffering and undermines all efforts aimed at a political solution. The shelling of civilians, wherever it happens, is a grave violation of international humanitarian law. Artillery should immediately be withdrawn from residential areas.

Languages:

La spirale de la violence sans cesse croissante dans l’est de l’Ukraine doit s'arrêter. Les combats provoqués par l’offensive continue des séparatistes, en particulier dans la zone de Debaltseve, causent de grandes souffrances humaines et compromettent tous les efforts déployés pour trouver une solution politique. Les bombardements de civils, où qu'ils se produisent, sont une grave violation du droit humanitaire international. Le matériel d'artillerie doit être immédiatement retiré des zones résidentielles.

Today's decision of a Court in Egypt to sentence 183 defendants to death following a mass trial is in violation of Egypt's international human rights obligations. 
 
We call on the Egyptian judicial authorities to ensure that due legal process is followed, in line with international standards.
 
The EU opposes capital punishment under all circumstances and considers it cruel and inhuman, failing to act as a deterrent and representing a denial of human dignity and integrity.

Languages:

La condamnation à mort de 183 prévenus prononcée aujourd’hui par un tribunal égyptien à l’issue d’un procès collectif constitue une violation des obligations internationales qui incombent à l’Égypte en matière de droits de l’homme. 

 

Nous demandons aux autorités judiciaires égyptiennes de faire en sorte qu'un procès en bonne et due forme soit organisé, conformément aux normes internationales.
