Egypt: Amnesty International's Briefing to the Human Rights Committee on the Arab Republic of Egypt, May 2002.
This summary of Amnesty International's concerns in Egypt is submitted by way of a briefing to the UN Human Rights Committee, prior to the Committee's consideration of Egypt's combined third and fourth periodic report on the measures which have been taken to implement that country's obligations as a State Party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). This briefing summarizes Amnesty International's main concerns under the ICCPR. However, it is not a comprehensive study of Egypt's treaty obligations under the ICCPR. Instead it concentrates on those articles of the ICCPR which are most relevant to Amnesty International's current and pressing concerns.
