Egypt: Permanent State of Exception: Abuses by the Supreme State Security Prosecution
Amnesty International has examined the role of the SSSP and concluded that it is responsible for routinely violating the rights to liberty and a fair trial, ordering the arbitrary detention of thousands, and for complicity in serious violations carried out by the police, particularly the National Security Agency, including enforced disappearances and torture and other ill-treatment. It functions as a tool of repression by misusing recently enacted counter-terrorism legislation to detain individuals for acts that should not even be criminalized.
