Nov 20, 2011

The schocking video shows the excessive force used by SCAF in Cairo to “disperse riots”

Article 14 of the UN Basic Principles provides:

“In the dispersal of violent assemblies, law enforcement officials may use firearms only when less dangerous means are not practicable and only to the minimum extent necessary.”

In just 2 days,SCAF caused over 3100 wounded and 11 death. (In the meanwhile, Nov 23, confirmed deathtoll raised to 90)  This is by no means – as the video shows too – minimum extent of law enforcement but plain torture, violence and deliberate manslaught.

Egypt is 1 of 5 nations that haven’t signed the Chemical Weapons Convention & are unhindered by restrictions on use of CS gas.
