Why the state forbids independent supervisors??

Three leaders of national work in Egypt have issued open message for Egypt. They are Dr. Aida Seif El Dawla, founder of Nadeem center for victims of torture and violence, Mr. Gaser Abdel Razek, executive manager of Egyptian Initiative for personal rights and Mr. Emad Mubarak, founder of Liberty Institute for freedom of Thought and expression.
They have all expressed their worry about latest official assault on all civil community organizations.
There is no doubt those organizations are considered the first civil organizations that enrich legal society in Egypt and helped detained people and students by changing many legislations and codes and to restore rights that may not return unless their efforts and believe in their mission.
Dr. Nagad El Bora has followed the same vision and mission in the United Group established in 1941, he has used all his experiences in the Nation service only in order to achieve justice in society without torture. He has put a bill against torture for that he is recently investigated about the reasons to put this bill of law.
Out of my work in legal institutions and yielding to societies law and declaration of one national institution, I follow the same steps and I see that the dispute between civil community organizations and the state should be solved soon. Pressures will led to a state of no peace, no war which the legal community live in recently and which obstacle its work effectively. Those organizations work on national and international levels to develop defense mechanism of person in front of official pressures, therefore, the dispute will not on the state benefit ….
Dispute is illusion … without any benefit.
I try to find an answer for the question in the title of this essay from the government in general and ministry of defense and interior in private??
I have visited many detention places with some independents in other Arab states and I have prepared many reports but it was not allowed to publish those reports????
We introduce those reports to the government and wait for answer from the government and to amend the problems which we have observed there.
The state in cooperation with national council of Human rights allows observing performance of human rights conventions. Those states are obliged to allow independents to visit prisons and detention places.
We are allowed as outer observers to enter those prisons and to write reports and present them to the government.
Then why the ministry of interior insists on stop developing detention places or to raise their quality or to change reconciliation mechanism there??
Final judicial decisions issue after along time of preventive detention in slow judicial procedures is considered as a penalty in itself????
Prisons have deficient abilities, shortage in infrastructure, no modern prisons suits with its role as reconciliation place, overcrowded, difficulty to transfer prisoners from police stations and to provide security for them, for all these reasons, we should start reconciliation of them?
What will ministry of interior gains if it punishes offenders and who defame its reputation?
What is wrong if the ministry of interior out of its mission to apply law presents one of its individuals for trial who has commit torture crime which is never prescribe by law??
What is wrong if the government allows organizations and societies which can suggest new legislations to fill in the gaps in law that need to be reformed since many years!
What is wrong if we have national team of independents to control detention places and to present reports for the government in order to follow the problems and to solve them with Ministry of interior and prisons sector? Beside the work of the national Council for Human rights which face many difficulties in getting responses for its claims in those places.
Article 7 in the International covenant on civil and political rights provides that, No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. In particular, no one shall be subjected without his free consent to medical or scientific experimentation.
Article 56 of the Egyptian constitution provides that prison is a place of reform and reconciliation, they are under judicial supervision, it is prohibited to practice any assault against human dignity or sanity. Law provides regulation of criminal reform, reconciliation and to provide good life for them after release.
What is wrong if the state follow arrest procedures without committing any violation of human rights and to provide speedy and fair trials, transparency in punishment with share of all the civil community organizations and societies that have experience in that field?
This age will not allow for all that disputes, split and pressure on all parties that work in the public field… we need to stand together and to refuse disputes in order to go ahead in reconstruction.
Is there anyone listening!!!
