ECCD Welcomes UNHRC Decision to Postpone Conference on Torture



Egyptian Canadian Coalition for Democracy (ECCD) welcomes the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) decision to postpone the conference on torture that was planned to take place in Cairo.

The original proposal of having this conference in Cairo under the current regime of Egypt was a shame and doesn't make any sense.

Egypt has a record in violating human rights, practicing torture daily in all Egyptian jails and does not have an independent juridical system.

All Human Right organization around the world have reported and documented the torture and the abuse of power that is taking place in Egypt.

We hope that one day Egypt will be free and democracy will prevail, only then a conference about torture can take place in Cairo where all can attend and enjoy a torture free land.

About ECCD: The Egyptian Canadian Coalition for Democracy (ECCD) is a politically independent, non-affiliated pan Canadian organization that advocates for democracy and human rights in Egypt. The ECCD has chapters in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver.
