star 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figures on the number of persons currently detained in Egypt without charge or trial as the Egyptian authorities do not publish this data.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

star this property answer text <p>The British Government is appalled by the sentences given to Egyptian and international journalists in Cairo on 23 June, two of whom were British Nationals. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Rt. Hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), made a statement on 23 June expressing his concerns and urging the Egyptian government to demonstrate its commitment to freedom of expression by reviewing this case as a matter of urgency.</p><p>The Egyptian Ambassador, Ashraf el-Kholy, was summoned to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) on 23 June. FCO Political Director, Simon Gass, told the Egyptian Ambassador that the British Government was deeply concerned by the verdicts, along with the procedural shortcomings seen during the trials. There is provision for freedom of expression contained in the Egyptian constitution and he asked that the Egyptian authorities review the sentences against this standard.</p><p>The UK believes that a free and robust press is the bedrock of democracy and we will continue to raise this case with the Egyptian authorities.</p>

One example of UK support is the development of a database of 10m poor households, which the Egyptian Government can use to target cash transfers towards the poorest. The UK is also funding projects that target marginalised communities, particularly women and girls in rural Egypt, providing them with access to finance and vocational training.</p><p> </p> more like this
