On January 22, 2013, 12 pm, the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) holds a press conference for presenting the report entitled "Citizens without Rights, Two Years after the Egyptian revolution" at the headquarters of EOHR. The workshop will be attended by professors of law, legal experts, public figures, media specialists, representatives of political parties, NGOs, political and human rights' activists.
The report comes in the framework of the second anniversary of 25th January Revolution, that raised the slogan of "Bread, Freedom and Social Justice" to discuss the development that took place in the field of civilian and political rights, economic and social rights as well. The report is discussing also the legislative development which guarantees human rights that comply with the international standards and covenants of human rights, signed and ratified by the old and current regimes.
Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, head of EOHR stated that nowadays the human rights issues are subjected to great ignorance in Egypt. Moreover, the democratic transformation process is moving slowly, however the awareness of the human rights' principals got raised during the past two years that followed the revolution.
MR. Abu Seada calls upon the Egyptian presidency and the Egyptian government to give suitable care to the human right abuses uncovered regularly by local and international civil society organizations in order to guarantee the human rights and freedoms that positively affect the Egyptian march towards achieving the real democracy and the rule of law.
