Amnesty: Morsi must restore rule of law
Amnesty International today called on Egypt’s new president to rise to the challenge of breaking the cycle of abuse perpetuated under Hosni Mubarak and the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF). The organization urged him to take decisive action in his first 100 days to put Egypt firmly on the path of the rule of law and respect for human rights.
The statement urges Egypt's incoming president to "release all prisoners of conscience," and to take two immediate steps to reform the security forces: first, creating an independent body to investigate abuses; and second, to make public the "structure of the security forces, as well as the orders which govern their use of force."
