This submission was prepared for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Egypt in November 2019. In it, Amnesty International evaluates the implementation of recommendations made to Egypt in its previous UPR, including in relation to freedom of expression, association and assembly; human rights violations in the name of counterterrorism; torture and other ill-treatment; unfair trials; the death penalty; gender-based discrimination; impunity for serious human rights violations; and failure to co-operate with UN human rights mechanisms.
It also assesses the national human rights framework with regard to Egypt’s constitution and recent amendments to it, the legislative framework and policy, and government-affiliated human rights bodies.
With regard to the human rights situation on the ground, Amnesty International raises concerns about freedom of expression, association and assembly; arbitrary detention and unfair trials; torture and other ill-treatment, enforced disappearances and cruel detention conditions; the death penalty; extrajudicial executions; impunity; sexual and gender-based discrimination and violence; discrimination against minorities; and refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants.
