  • Title: From Civil Society Organizations the Supreme Council of Armed Forces is urged to open the doors for democratic transformation and secure accountability of the Mubarak regime » The Egyptian Association For Community Participation Enhancement
    Descriptive info: From Civil Society Organizations the Supreme Council of Armed Forces is urged to open the doors for democratic transformation and secure accountability of the Mubarak regime.. 2-03-2011, 14:26.. : 1446 |.. The undersigned Egyptian human rights organizations are closely following the efforts of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces as it manages the country s affairs in this difficult period, during which the council must assume its responsibilities and honor its vows to respond to the demands and aspirations of the Egyptian people as expressed in the January 25 revolution.. Additionally, it must face the repercussions of the overthrow of the Mubarak regime and the disintegration and suspicious withdrawal of the security establishment that accompanied it.. The Council must also expose and curb the catastrophic consequences of theft, financial and administrative corruption, and the ruination of the country s political life perpetrated by a broad network of interests, including the office of the presidency, prominent figures of what was previously known as the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP), and influential leaders within the parliament and the executive branch.. We realize that the armed forces acted as a pillar of support for the Egyptian revolution, helping to achieve its first goal of the removal of the former president and the dissolution of the People s Assembly and Shura Council, which were stigmatized and delegitimized by flagrantly fraudulent elections.. Nevertheless, the undersigned organizations feel growing concern about the path being taken in the transitional phase, which should presumably lay the foundation for a democratic, civil state that respects human rights the overriding goal for which Egyptians made costly sacrifices.. In this context, we make the following observations:.. Making a clean break with the former dictator's regime required the immediate removal of the government created by him to mislead the people and contain their revolution.. Attempts to repair this government with piecemeal changes will not dispel the legitimate fears many people feel about the political survival of certain figures close to the deposed president and cannot so easily shirk their responsibility for both the wide range of crimes committed during Mubarak s tenure and the criminal misinformation campaigns designed to discredit the goals of the revolution and incite against those who were part of it.. Making a clean break with the policies and crimes of the Mubarak regime, restoring the rule of law, and subordinating state institutions to that law requires more decisive, transparent steps to hold accountable and punish figures responsible for crimes and grave abuses committed under Mubarak s regime in public and fair trials.. We regret to note that measures taken thus far seem selective and not aimed at establishing a legal system for accountability and punishment or announcing facts to the public.. In particular, the undersigned organizations note severe shortcomings, or at the very least an unjustified secrecy, surrounding the measures that must be taken to ensure accountability for major crimes, first and foremost:.. a) The identification and prosecution of those responsible for issuing orders to open fire on demonstrators.. b) The identification and prosecution of those responsible for giving the green light to acts of murder and paid thuggery in the name of loyalty to Mubarak.. c) Making public the facts surrounding the agencies and persons responsible for the suspicious withdrawal and disappearance of police forces and the release of prisoners and criminals from prisons, which left the country vulnerable to widespread looting and theft.. d) Former Information Minister Anas al-Fiqqi must be prosecuted for his responsibility in managing the media campaigns aimed at misleading public opinion, smearing participants in the popular revolution, and the xenophobic campaign inciting hatred of foreigners.. Confirming the legitimacy of the demands of the Egyptian labor movement since 12 February demanding its social and economic rights, the undersigned organizations announce their  ...   with regret that the desire on the part of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to complete its mission as soon as possible is liable to lead to the establishment of constitutional institutions in a manner that differs little from those under the Mubarak regime and will do little to enable the forces and youth movements that led this revolution to express themselves politically in new political parties and independent media.. Indeed, as it currently stands, the outcome of the coming elections will continue to be disputed by the ability of NDP members to mobilize factional sentiment and money and the organizational ability of the Muslim Brotherhood to employ religion and charitable work to attract votes.. We further stress that the blood shed by Egyptians to confront tyranny and restore their freedom and dignity makes it indispensable to provide a climate and adequate safeguards to ensure the realization of their aspirations by engaging in a real democratic transition and the construction of genuine constitutional institutions the noble goals for which they shed their blood.. The democratic transition process under the joint leadership of a presidential council and a new civil government should enjoy the wide partnership of the people represented in the forces that led the revolution women and men and the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.. This needs opening an institutional dialogue with political parties and groups and civil society, led by youth groups who have instigated the revolution.. The dialogue should not be reduced to discussion with individuals and must provide the opportunity for the widest societal dialogue to make the aspired future.. The undersigned organizations stress that the democratic transition requires the rapid formation of a temporary presidential council composed of independent civilian figures along with a representative of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to assume the task of forming a transitional, technocratic government.. The presidential council should form a constituent assembly responsible for drafting a new constitution that reflects the aspirations of the Egyptian people, as expressed in the revolution, for a civil state that is impartial toward all religions and beliefs and the establishment of democratic parliamentary governance.. This council should also immediately take the necessary measures to ensure the exercise of civil liberties to enable equitable and fair parliamentary and presidential elections, based on the principle of equality and non-discrimination on the basis of sex or other considerations, and guarantee representation and expression for opinions and ideas across the political spectrum.. The undersigned organizations stress on the importance of putting in place sufficient guarantees for the representation of youth and women in the interim civil government and the constituent assembly drafting the new constitution.. We caution that holding elections after only minor constitutional revisions threatens aspirations for a real separation and balance of powers and runs the risk of preserving the same dictatorial prerogatives enjoyed by the president in the suspended constitution, with no accountability or genuine parliamentary oversight.. This threatens the perpetuation of the same autocratic system, only without Mubarak and some of his supporters.. Signatures:.. Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies..

  • Title: DataLife Engine > Printable version> EACPE Vision for the constitutional amendments
    Descriptive info: Magrabi.. Net.. > بيانات, بيانات >.. EACPE Vision for the constitutional amendments.. 28-02-2011, 21:18.. Author:.. nabil.. Cairo 28 Feb 2011.. The Egyptian Association for Community Participation Enhancement (EACPE) has been following the constitutional committee that was formed by the Supreme Council for Armed Forces (SCAF).. The committee was formed to amend some articles of the constitution regarding the powers of the president, the number of terms for the president, how to elect the president and deciding on the membership of the Parliament.. The constitutional committee announced the results they reached and were approved by SCAF.. EACPE has the following remarks on the work and formation of the committee.. For six years, EACPE has been involved in field monitoring for elections (presidential, parliamentary, syndicates, unions etc).. EACPE has been focusing on legislative and legal context in which Egyptian elections take place, which enables the Executive authority to intervene in the powers of the Legislative and Judicial authorities under the 1971 constitution and the 2007 amendments.. EACPE has always criticized the structure of the constitution as it does not provide balance between the three authorities, and gives absolute powers to the president of the republic being the sole powerful person in the state: s/he hires, fires, establishes bodies and dissolves others without observing or monitoring from any other entity.. EACPE has also criticized the way the constitution deals with public liberties and freedoms as it leaves these rights to constricting laws imposed by administrative bodies, affiliated to the Executive authority, that deprive citizens from the right of peaceful assembly or creating any entity as well as having a set of laws limiting freedom of expression and press.. EACPE believes that the Egyptian constitution is not suitable for establishing the state of law and that it should be changed, not only amended.. EACPE supported the demands calling upon SCAF to announce electing a temporary Constituent Assembly to frame a new constitution that protects human rights and public liberties and freedoms, and guarantees balance between the three authorities, then calling for new parliamentary elections that issue a set of law enhancing freedom of expression and belief and the right to establish peaceful entities, as well as forming a transitional government that does not include ministers from the National Democratic Party.. This is the only means to achieve the demands of the great 25th of January Revolution.. When SCAF formed this committee, it did not choose representatives from different political movements, whether the existing parties, youth coalitions, NGOs or Egyptian intellectuals.. It  ...   another condition, which is that the applicant, or any of his/her parents, never had another nationality, and that they are not married to a foreign spouse.. These conditions are exaggerated and practically they imply the elimination of some potential candidates such as Dr.. El-Baradei, Dr.. Ahmed Zowail among other people whose jobs necessitated having dual citizenships.. Moreover, the amended article did not specify a maximum age for the candidate.. Besides, the committee, when amended article 139, obliged the president to appoint a vice president (VP)or more within 60 days from coming to office, such that the president determines the powers of the VP.. The esteemed committee should have made choosing the VP through direct free elections.. The esteemed committee did not tackle or discuss some important laws such as the Law for Exercising Political Rights (LEPR), the Law for People Assembly and Shura Council, Presidential Elections Law and the Law for Political Parties (LPP).. These laws highly affect the Egyptian political life, and without being amended the suggested constitutional amendments would be formal.. EACPE believes the constitutional committee suggested some constitutional amendments that represent an aspiration for a huge sector of Egyptians; however, a discussion should be opened to discuss these amendments through a mechanism that enables all Egyptians to participate without discrimination based on culture, social standard, religion, ethnicity, sex or any other consideration before a referendum is held.. Furthermore, EACPE calls upon the military council to issue decree laws according to the jurisdictions it has per the fourth statement issued by SCAF.. These decree laws shall immediately amend the LPP, such that citizens can establish parties through notification and without intervention from the Political Parties Committee.. This shall take place before the coming parliamentary elections, so that serious and genuine political movements that were deprived because of administrative and security interventions before the 25th of January would be able to freely establish political parties and participate in elections.. EACPE demands halting the Law for People Assembly and Shura Council that allow the Minister of Interior, and other administrative entities of the Executive authority, to organize the electoral process and issue the "laborer" or "peasant" status, which constitute 50% of the Parliament.. The issuance of these statues witnessed explicit irregularities and breaches by administrative bodies.. In addition, LEPR has to be changed, through replacing the Supreme Committee for Elections, which was a partner in rigging the parliamentary elections 2010, due to the fact that the law allows security and administrative bodies to intervene in its work..

  • Title: DataLife Engine > Printable version> Roadmap for a nation of rights and the rule of law Statement by the Forum of Independent Human Rights Organizations
    Descriptive info: > بيانات, بيانات, بيانات >.. Roadmap for a nation of rights and the rule of law Statement by the Forum of Independent Human Rights Organizations.. 14-02-2011, 13:27.. Long live the Egyptian popular revolution.. The dictator has fallen; now it s time to bring down the police state.. Roadmap for a nation of rights and the rule of law.. Statement by the Forum of Independent Human Rights Organizations.. Civilian body to oversee the country s affairs for a one-year transitional period, in conjunction with the armed forces, and the postponement of presidential elections.. Dissolution of the People s Assembly, Shura Council, and local councils.. Civilian figure to oversee the Interior Ministry and the dissolution of State Security Investigations, a crucial pillar of the police state.. The provision of public liberties, particularly the freedom to establish political parties, professional and trade unions, and civic organizations; and the dissolution of the Egyptian Trade Union Federation and the General Federation of Civic Associations.. A new constitution for a civil, democratic state that respects human rights and grants all citizens equal status regardless of religion, belief, or race.. No provision of legal immunity for the former president.. Cairo 12 February 2011.. The Forum of Independent Human Rights Organizations congratulates the Egyptian people for their successful revolution and the removal of the dictator Hosni Mubarak, who denied dignity and humanity to Egyptians for three decades.. The Forum especially salutes the revolution s martyrs and the young people who sparked the uprising, creatively mobilized and organized, and bravely fought to achieve the first goal of deposing the dictator under a coalition of youth leaders.. The Forum also salutes the peoples of the world, international rights groups, research centers, and the governments who showed their solidarity with the January 25 revolution from the first moment.. The Forum urges nations around the world holding the financial assets of former senior officials to facilitate the repatriation of Egypt s looted assets.. Furthermore, the Forum salutes the role of the armed forces in protecting the revolution and supporting its demands up to the achievement of its first goal.. In particular, it applauds the third communiqué issued by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, which stated that the council will not be an alternative to the legitimacy approved by the people.. As such, the Forum calls on the supreme council to quickly release a timetable for the transfer of power to a civilian body to manage the transition phase to a civil, democratic state that respects human rights, in cooperation with the armed forces, and with the participation of civil society, which can monitor the implementation of the roadmap.. The Forum also urges the Supreme Council to issue urgent directives to Egyptian diplomats abroad, particularly Egypt s representatives at the UN and the UN Human Rights Council, to withdraw from international coalitions hostile to human rights.. Egypt s continued diplomatic support in Geneva and New York for the worst dictatorships in the world, and its complicity against upholding the rights of the victims of these dictatorships, is the greatest insult to the martyrs of Egypt s January 25 revolution.. To the civilian body that will assume responsibility in the transitional phase, and to the Supreme Council until such a civilian body is formed, the Forum offers the following proposals:.. I.. Dissolve the People s Assembly, the Shura Council, and local councils.. , which are the product of the most fraudulent elections in Egypt s history, in order to avoid any challenge to the legitimacy of legislative or constitutional amendments issued by the parliament.. Moreover, all officials involved in the administration of elections to these bodies must be investigated.. The Forum believes that holding parliamentary or presidential elections in the current corrupt legislative and political environment will produce results that differ little from the previous elections.. Indeed, the next elections must be held after a transitional period of at least one year during which time public liberties are respected in full, particularly the right to form political parties, professional and trade unions, civic associations, and all forms of media.. II.. Take immediate steps to hold accountable those responsible for all crimes committed against Egyptians since the beginning of the uprising on January 25.. This entails:.. No guarantee of immunity should be granted to former president Hosni Mubarak that prevents holding him accountable for any crimes he may have committed, directly or indirectly, during his time in power.. Immunity should be revoked if promises have already been made to the contrary.. All officials responsible since 25 January for orders to open fire, killing hundreds of demonstrators, and those responsible for the shutdown of internet and mobile phone services, should be referred to trial, starting with the former interior minister and his aides.. All officials responsible for the coordinated withdrawal of security forces and the subsequent release of prisoners, which lead to a wide spread intimidation and terrorizing of citizens, and looting and theft, must be held accountable.. An independent judicial body for truth and equity should be formed to investigate and receive complaints of corruption and human rights abuses committed before and after 25 January.. The authorities should guarantee and provide every facility to ensure the independence and impartiality of the body.. The latter should give priority to the investigation of crimes committed since 25 January.. Identify and prosecute those responsible for the massacre in Tahrir Square on 2 February and the attacks on the offices of several human rights organizations on 3 February.. The Public Prosecutor s investigation should be transparent and the public should be informed of the findings in a timely manner.. The minister of information should be brought to trial for his responsibility for the misinformation campaigns launched by state-owned media, along with one private satellite channel, designed to smear the participants in the January 25 revolution as foreign agents, as well as his orchestration of a xenophobic campaign of incitement to hatred and violence against foreigners.. It should be noted that these orchestrated media campaigns harmed the tourism sector  ...   The general assemblies of NGOs must have the sole authority to determine the policies of civic associations, their articles of incorporation, and the composition of their boards.. Guarantee the right of NGOs to establish general federations, networks, and alliances without administrative tutelage, as well as the right to join international and regional networks and alliances.. Prohibit the dissolution of NGOs or the dismissal of their boards by administrative order.. Prohibit the dissolution or suspension of any NGO but by a court order subject to appeal.. Guarantee the right of civil society institutions to develop their resources and receive the necessary funding for their activities.. Take the necessary legislative measures to ensure freedom of the media by:.. Ending the control of the executive and its ruling party over state-owned media.. ; taking action to restructure the radio and television broadcasting to strengthen diversity, competition, and free, democratic expression; and, transform the state-owned visual and written media into organizations at the service of the public that enjoy administrative, financial, and programming independence and with representative boards whose members are chosen based on competence and in consideration of a diversity of views and trends.. Grant the authority to license visual and aural media outlets to a national media council.. , composed of independent figures, which is not subject to the tutelage of the executive.. The law establishing this council should guarantee the right of judicial review of any of its decrees.. Abolish legislative and administrative restrictions on the circulation of information and the right of citizens to information, and adopt a law that guarantees media workers the right to access and publish information and punishes the obstruction of this right.. Abolish penal provisions that mandate prison time for publication crimes.. ; prohibit provisional detention for these crimes, including the crime of insulting the president; and, review provisions in the Penal Code and publications law to ensure that they cannot be used to stigmatize or limit freedom of opinion, expression, or the media.. Amend the judiciary law to guarantee the independence of the Public Prosecutor from the executive.. , prohibit intervention by the Justice or Interior Ministry in the legal process, guarantee that the general assemblies of the courts have the right to refer cases to the competent judges without interference, and uphold the independence of judges clubs.. Amend the law on the National Council for Human Rights to compel relevant state agencies to provide it with the necessary information and reports.. , respond to citizen complaints referred to them by the council, and reconsider the composition of the council to ensure real independence by appointing at least one-third of its members from independent human rights organizations.. Amend Article 126 of the Penal Code on punishment for crimes of torture.. in accordance with the comprehensive definition of the crime and its perpetrators as included in Article 1 of the UN Convention Against Torture: amend the Code of Criminal Procedure to guarantee victims of grave police violations or their families the right to file a criminal suit against those responsible for these abuses; and, stiffen the penalties for crimes of torture and prohibit discretionary leniency or clemency in sentencing to ensure the proper penalty for these crimes.. i.. Take legislative measures to ensure that civilians cannot be prosecuted before military tribunals and limit the jurisdiction of the military judiciary.. to military personnel who have committed crimes and violations in their units or during the course of duty.. Electoral reform.. Amend the law on the exercise of political rights and Law 174/2005 on the regulation of presidential elections.. to end the Interior Ministry s control over general elections, including presidential polls, and grant oversight of all elections to one independent judicial body chosen by judges through the courts general assemblies.. This body should be given the authority necessary to fully supervise the electoral process, starting from the preparation, review, and updating of voter rolls, and including the receipt of declarations of candidacy and challenges to them, the drawing of electoral districts and polling stations, the drafting of campaign rules and guarantees of compliance with them and the implementation of the legal provisions that criminalize thuggery, violence, and coercion of voters and vote-buying, as well as the use of religious slogans or houses of worship, public monies, or state facilities to support particular candidates.. This body should also be responsible for announcing election results.. This requires the establishment of judicial policing under the authority of the body, not subject to the Interior Ministry, to guarantee its directives are implemented.. Adopt a proportional, open list system.. , which can guarantee better representation for political parties and empower social sectors that have long been marginalized in political life.. Legalize the right of NGOs to monitor elections at all stages.. , facilitate their ability to act independently, end the National Council for Human Rights monopoly over permits for election monitoring, and accept international monitors for general elections.. Reconsider state funding for political parties in general elections to provide funding.. and incentives to encourage parties to include young people, women, and others besides Sunni Muslims on their electoral lists.. Implement court orders that ban police guards from university campuses.. , end security interference in student activities and academic and faculty appointments, end security and administrative intervention in faculty clubs and student union elections, and uphold the right of students to draft new bylaws for student unions..
