Broken promises Egypt's military rulers erode human rights

2011Amnesty International

In recent months, scores of Egyptians have been summoned to appear before military prosecutors, following their public criticism of the armed forces on-line, on television or in print. Among those summonsed have been political and human rights activists, bloggers, candidates for public office, and broadcasters and journalists. Some have been let go after questioning. Others have faced charges, detention and unfair trials before military courts.
