unstar this property answer text <p>Government representatives from our Embassy in Cairo are closely monitoring cases where prosecutions have been made under the protest law in Egypt. We have called on the Egyptian government to review the Protest Law and have raised specific cases with them, including during the visit by Foreign Minister Shoukry to the UK on 27 October. The Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Mr Cameron), asked that the Egyptian government address the large number of people being held in detention during his meeting with President Al-Sisi at the UN General Assembly in New York on 23 September. The Government believes that freedom of expression, including the right to protest peacefully, is vital in any democracy.</p> more like this

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
