Egypt - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (06.11.17)


Q - Do you share the concerns of Canada, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom in the case of the attorney Ibrahim Metwally Hegazy? If so, have you shared this concern with Egyptian officials?

A - We regularly bring up the issue of human rights with Egyptian officials.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi’s recent official visit to France offered an opportunity to bring up this important subject, and – as the President indicated – to present our demands with respect to individual cases.
