The undersigned human rights organizations express their deep concern and condemnation of the vicious attacks on Egyptian civil society organizations, since the NDP completely smashed offices.
Also, in the afternoon of 3/2/2011, military officers stormed the office of the “Women’s Group for Human Rights” in downtown Cairo in the absence of its staff. Officers seized documentation, the safe and hard disks and smashed the furniture.

“Some were wearing military uniforms, while others were special forces from the Ministry of Interior. The office was completely ruined. No one was detained as the attack occurred on a Friday, the weekend in Egypt,” said Asmaa Soliman, the group's director.

State owned media launched a incitement crackdown on human rights organizations, casting doubts on the intention of the Egyptian government to extend its attack on human rights organizations in Egypt.

The undersigned express their deep concern at these practices and the planned attack on civil society institutes. Concealing the place of detention implies that the detainees could be exposed to violence, especially that they were arrested using extreme violent practices by plain clothes security officers and NDP bullies despite the fact that some activists have delicate health conditions.

The undersigned request the military police to declare the places where the people are being detained and to guarantee their safety. The detainees should be released at once or prosecuted by impartial authorities if they were charged of any crime at all.

The undersigned assure that the former cabinet is the drive of this uprising due to oppression, torture, corruption and overlooking brutal police practices especially those of the SSI and using emergency law to silence anyone calling for democracy; bloggers and internet activists.
The undersigned:
