The British Government is not aware of any Egyptian accountability processes relating to the dispersal, though it is an issue to which we continue to attach importance.</p><p>Egypt is a Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) Human Rights Priority Country. FCO Ministers have asked the Egyptian authorities to take action to release journalists and political detainees who remain imprisoned, review mass judicial decisions and remove restrictions on civil society. I raised these concerns during my visit to Cairo in August. We are also deeply concerned about reports of torture and mistreatment in detention in Egypt and continue to raise these issues with the Egyptian authorities. We have raised these concerns in public, through the UN Human Rights Council and through the FCO's Human Rights Priority Country reports, and in private in meetings with Egyptian government representatives in London and in Cairo.</p>

We were appalled by Mr Regeni's murder, and the brutal manner of his killing. As Mr Regeni was an Italian citizen, the Italian Government is taking the lead role on his case. We have raised the need for a transparent and impartial investigation into the circumstances of Mr Regeni's murder with the Egyptian authorities at Ministerial and official levels. We are deeply concerned by the arrest of human rights lawyer Ibrahim Metwally Hegazy. The Embassy in Cairo is following up this case with the Egyptian authorities. The UK has made clear its concerns about enforced disappearances, as well as the wider human rights situation in Egypt, through its national statement at the recent session of the UN Human Rights Council.</p> more like this
