HRW: SCAF curbs on free press, assembly before poll

On the eve of landmark elections, the international human rights watch dog “Human Rights Watch” has issued a lengthy statement documenting the “repeated violations of free expression and free assembly” in Egypt.

The New York-based group has said in a statement entitled “Egypt: Curbs on Free Press, Assembly Before Poll”:

Ahead of the vote, SCAF should cancel emergency laws that curb assembly and allow for mass detention without charge or trial, order an end to military trials, stop harassment of bloggers and other critics of the government, and permit free, peaceful assembly.
