Egypt’s Presidency has condemned recent publication of leaked reports by The Guardian which claimed that Egypt’s Armed Forces participated in kidnappings, torture, and killings during the 2011 revolution.
The report was formed by a committee that was hand-picked by President Morsi in January and is yet to be made publicly available. The findings include, but are not limited to:
- During the 18-days of revolution in 2011, citizens were detained, tortured, and in some cases kidnapped by the Military. Numerous civilians disappeared only to have their bodies found several weeks later at morgues across the country, after reportedly being delivered there by Military personnel. Many of the dead were found to have been severely tortured.
- Protesters were detained by the Military and tortured in the basement of the Egyptian Museum near Tahrir Square, and forced to confess to crimes. Many of those tortured were then either released or taken to Military prisons.
