Report on violent attacks will not go public

The official committee established in Cairo to investigate violence during the period in which army intervention removed President Mohamed Mursi is not entitled to release its findings to the public.

The committee was established in December 2013 to examine numerous violent episodes following army intervention and the arrest and imprisonment of Mursi and many others. These include attacks by security forces on demonstrators at Raba’ al-Adaweya square in Cairo, widely described as a “massacre”.

Ahmed Ragab, a lawyer and member of the National Association for Human Rights, says there are “legitimate doubts” regarding the neutrality of the committee.
