Bahey Eldin Hassan General Director, Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies
Mr. Hassan analyzed the conclusions of POMED’s report on civil society in the context of what daily life is like for civil society employees in Egypt. Hassan asserted that in his long tenure in civil society work, the oppression that the sector faces has been by far the worst under President Sisi. Most of the laws issued under Sisi have further institutionalized the repression of human rights. More than 3,000 Egyptian citizens have been killed since the 2011 revolution. 40,000 Egyptians are currently in prison with rare access to due process trial â€" this is compared to 20,000 prisoners under the Mubarak regime, when legal rights were more accessible. Hassan noted a massive deterioration of the performance of the judiciary; during the Mubarak era, NGOs and the judiciary were allied in maintaining independence from the government, but now, the “front lineâ€� of defending civil society from government has collapsed. The oppression of civil society, Hassan said, reflects the oppression of the greater Egyptian populace. The new Terrorist Entities Law is a prime example. This law has much less to do with fighting domestic terrorism, Hassan argued, than the suppression of civil society, independent journalists, critical political parties, and related actors. Many of the human rights defenders that Hassan has worked with are suffering in Egyptian detention due to repressive laws and politically motivated trials. While ongoing repressive tactics are justified by a fight against terrorism, Hassan believes that these actions create an environment that is dangerously more welcoming to the recruitment of terrorism in the Sinai.

The Trial of Mubarak: A momentous event, but does it go far enough? [cached]
According to the Director of the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS), Bahey eldin Hassan: "Mubarak's trial is a historical eventfor the Arab world. But it is regrettable that he is only being prosecuted for crimes committed during the revolution."
Commenting on Mubarak's trial this morning in numerous interviews with the media, the Director of CIHRS emphasized the historical importance and meaning of Mubarak's trial, not only for Egyptians, but for all Arab people. He said that this was the first time in modern history that an Arab people had been able to prosecute a President for his crimes. According to Mr. Hassan, although Saddam Hussein was tried and Omar al-Bashir has been referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC), Mubarak's trial is different.
Hassan stated that he regretted that the former President was only being tried for crimes committed on five days, from January 18 to February 2 of this year, and that no less atrocious crimes committed over the three decades of his rule were not being prosecuted.
The same is true of the former minister of interior Habib al-Adli's trial, Hassan said. Adli is not being tried for crimes committed during the 13 years he served as Interior Minister, during which he was responsible, under the supervision of Mubarak and his aides, for supporting thepillars of the police state, routine, systematic torture, and the repression of political enemies and dissidents.
The primary objective of these trials are thus to achieve justice for a small segment of the Egyptian people-the victims and martyrs of therevolution-while millions of other Egyptians are denied justice for no less horrible crimes committed by Mubarak and his regime over 30 years.
Commenting on the decision to postpone the trial to the middle of this month, Hassan said, "It looks as if the trials will be protracted, and no one knows which will ultimately prove shorter-the trial itself or Mubarak's life.

Bahey Eddin Hassan, director of Cairo Center for Human Rights Studies, said that the report comments on the wide-scale attack on bloggers in Egypt and many Arab countries, such as Bahrain, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and Syria.
Bush resorted to the technique of public policies and the imposition of force, such as the green light to the re-occupation of the West Bank and the recent war in Gaza, Hassan said, expecting that the Obama administration will discuss human rights in public in some special cases.
