Amnesty International warns that Egypt’s President Abdul Fatah al-Sisi’s government has created a parallel system of justice for crackdowns against critics and opponents. Amnesty International says the main source for targeting opponents is known as ‘SSP’ Amnesty International says anti-terrorism courts and special police force to target opponents the Supreme State Security Prosecution Service, the Anti-Terrorism Courts, and the Special Police Force. Katia Roux, director of Amnesty International’s France-based office, said at the opening of a 60-page report in Paris that all critics of the government in Sisi’s Egypt are seen as dangerous terrorists. The report, called the Permanent State of Expression, says the situation is getting worse, pressure is mounting.

The World Human Rights Organization says Egypt has seen a sharp rise in cases from the SSP, which was 529 in 2013, and that number has increased to 1739 from last year. The prosecution, which deals with state security-threatening activities, said in the report, she constantly investigates political opponents and Islamic leaders from the Muslim Brotherhood. Philip Luther, head of research and legal affairs at Amnesty International’s Middle East, warns that the SSP is the main source of repression, whose first task is to increase pressure on detainees and detain them, all of which they call counter-terrorism. He said that the SSP, the National Security Agency of Egypt (NSA), the Special Police Force and the Anti-Terrorism Courts arrested the detainees, parallel systems of justice have come out of their inquiry and action against peaceful citizens.

Many detainees have long been detained without trial; the report says those who have also been denied the hope of access to legal aid have been forced to face rigorous imprisonment. Many people have been held for months and years without any evidence, secret police investigations and no access, he said. Foreign news agency ‘AFP’ was informed about the difficulties and hardships of many people and their relatives who came out of Egyptian government prison. Celine Lebrun, wife of human rights activist Ramy Shaath, who was arrested in Cairo in July this year, said there was a repression in Egypt for precautionary measures. Referring to the government’s stand, he said he says the state can detain anyone for months or even years. And they have accused my husband of supporting a terrorist group and were last presented earlier this week without notice to a lawyer.

Emaan Saleh, a political asylum seeker in France, said he was arrested 9 times since 2000 on similar charges. He said that prisoners are saddened to be cut off from the world; if you are among the victims of forced disappearance, it is as if you do not exist. Earlier, on November 25, Egyptian police raided the office of a local journalist, Madi Egypt, and arrested three news editors. Egypt’s Independent News Site says Security Forces have raided our offices and we just got our phones and laptops back, the prosecution service has taken Lena Atala, Mohammad Hamama and Rana Mammduwa. In a post posted on social media, 9 officers dressed in plain clothes questioned website reporters for several hours, they demanded that the phones and laptops be locked and handed over.

It is to be noted that this month, the United Nations called for the investigation of the death of former President Mohammad Morsi, who was detained during the state, and called for an investigation. Agnes Clambord, special specialist in extra-law or execution matters, says the circumstances under which Dr. Mohammed Morsi was imprisoned and especially the last five years in Torah jail can only be described as cruel. He said the circumstances which led to the death of Dr Morsi could be called a state murder. Agnès Callamard said, “We have received certified evidence from several sources that thousands of prisoners are found throughout Egypt.” Those who are deprived of their rights and many of them are in serious danger. He said that the current government of President Abdul Fatah al-Sisi is constantly taking such steps to silence the opposition.

It is to be remembered that Dr Morsi, the former president of Egypt, passed away in the courtroom on June 17, 2019, during a jail hearing. Media reports said that during the hearing, Dr Morsi lost consciousness and died shortly afterwards. Dr Mohamed Morsi won the first free elections in 2012, following the ousting of decades of Hussein Mubarak’s rule over millions of people demonstrating in Egypt and he was nominated for president by the Muslim Brotherhood, but a year later he was demanded to resign, and once again protests began in Egypt. The then Army Chief of Egypt, Abdul-Fateh Al-Sisi, defeated the government in July 2013 and became president himself and later elected president.

Egyptian military arrested several leaders and thousands of activists, including Mohamed Morsi, in a crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood. And during the hundreds of workers were killed and many died in prisons. Mohammad Morsi was also sentenced to life imprisonment, capital punishment and 20 years imprisonment on charges of espionage, killing of protesters and breaking the jail.
