Egypt: Systematic abuses in the name of security
Torture and other ill-treatment, arbitrary arrests and detention, and grossly unfair trials before emergency and military courts have all been key features of Egypt's 40-year state of emergency and counter-terrorism campaign. The extensive powers granted to law enforcement officials have played a key role in facilitating such abuses, particularly torture. Emergency legislation has also severely restricted the rights to freedom of expression, association and assembly.
