EUCOHR denounces Khosous’ sedition ruling
Friday ,20 December 2013
The judge had ignored the testimony of 7 witnesses and only considered the police report, which is accused of complicity.
EUCOHR demanded the Egyptian government to open investigation concerning this case and others, in which the victims are punished twice by the aggressors as well as the state. Yet, the aggressors are happily acquitted!
