The UK has already allocated £700 million to support internally displaced persons inside Syria and Syrian refugees in neighbouring countries, of which £2.3 million has been provided to Syrian refugees in Egypt in 2013/14. The UK Government has also been active in raising concerns on the treatment and detention of refugees and migrants within Egypt with the relevant authorities as well as providing diplomatic support to the work of UNHCR and other actors on these issues. The UK, through the tri-departmental Conflict Pool, is also supporting work to strengthen border management in the region.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>DFID is helping to address economic challenges in Egypt, promoting economic opportunities to reduce hardship.

unstar this property answer text Since January 2014, Egypt has held a constitutional referendum; elected a new President; and is preparing for parliamentary elections to be held in the coming months. We look to President Al Sisi to take steps to implement the rights contained in Egypt’s constitution, in particular ensuring freedom of expression and association, as well as ensuring that human and legal rights are fully upheld. We express our concern to the Egyptian authorities when we see these rights being threatened, such as in the mass death penalties handed down in Minya; the prosecution of journalists; the detention of people engaging in peaceful political expression, the limitations on peaceful protest, as well as restrictions on the freedom of non-governmental organisations. We believe that a genuinely open political process, in which all political groups are able to participate, will lead to long-term political stability in Egypt. more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>There are no reliable figures on the number of persons currently detained in Egypt without charge or trial as the Egyptian authorities do not publish this data. The 2013 US State Department Human Rights report suggests that there are as many as 2,000 pre-trial detainees. In August 2013 the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), called for the release of all political detainees unless there are criminal charges to be laid against them, and emphasised that it is vital that any charges are not politically motivated. In his statement on 28 April he urged the Egyptian authorities to ensure that human and legal rights are fully upheld in the country as a whole. On 5 June the 28 Member States of the EU issued a statement calling on the Egyptian authorities to ensure defendants' rights to a fair and timely trial based on clear charges and to respect due process.</p> more like this
