The government has complete monopoly over data and information. There may be hope that this may change with the draft Freedom of Information law, but this is unlikely. National security concerns will always stand in the way of getting complete information.

Egypt police is fighting children

Mostafa Hussein, Blogging on the wrong side - Sun, 25/11/2012 - 2:39pm

This is crazy. They are all kids on the frontline. Aged 9 and up. Average age by the look of it is 15. Kids lie to me about their age, say 12 when they are clearly 10 years old. Most are wearing surgical masks and eyes red from teargas.

By asking a few why they are here, they say their older brothers were injured or killed by police. It's not clear if this is meant literally or not.

Morsi, CSF and Torturing Protestors on Air

Mostafa Hussein, Blogging on the wrong side - Sat, 24/11/2012 - 10:27pm

Not only protesters are being teargassed and hit at by shotguns in their face on the outskirts of Tahrir square. They are being dragged, beaten and tortured on the streets. This is not new. What's new is that this was broadcasted live on TV tonight. This happened before during Mubarak and SCAF. But it's new for Morsi.

Why is this happening again? The answer is very simple. The police has enjoyed total impunity over its actions for years. This hasn’t changed.

مرسي والأمن المركزي وسحل المتظاهرين على الهواء

Mostafa Hussein, Blogging on the wrong side - Sat, 24/11/2012 - 10:18pm

مش بس المتظاهرين بيضرب عليهم غاز وخرطوش في وشهم في محيط ميدان التحرير. لأ ده بيتسحلوا ويتضربوا ويتعذبوا في الشوارع، ده مش جديد، الجديد هو ان ده أتذاع على الهواء الليلة. ده حصل مع مبارك والمجلس العسكري، لكن أول مرة لمرسي. ليه ده بيحصل تاني؟ الاجابة بسيطة. الشرطة بتستمتع بأقصى درجات الإفلات من العقاب لتصرفاتها من سنوات. وده ماتغيرش.
