Egypt – Closing of Al Nadeem center (February 9, 2017)


France expresses its concern following yesterday’s closing of the Al Nadeem Center for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence and Torture.

France, which like Egypt is party to the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, reiterates its commitment to combating these practices, which are a violation of human dignity.

We hope a solution may be found swiftly so that this association may continue its work, whose high quality we applaud.
