The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI), said 11 journalists died in Egypt in the period from January 28, 2011 until March 28, 2014, without sending most of the responsible for their murders to justice. The responsibility refers, according to the evidences and circumstances, to the Police “5 martyrs”, MB and their supporters “3 martyrs” and Military forces “two martyrs while the responsible for one martyr is still unknown yet.
The booklet of 55 pages of medium papers, includes the names and the pictures of the journalists as a document that shed the light on a phenomena that wasn’t known in Egypt; murdering the journalists. It strongly appears accompanied with impunity that entrenched in Egypt since the dictator Mubarak and until today.
ANHRI said that the impunity established by the deposed dictator Hosni Mubarak, had expanded to include journalists. Although, January 25threvolution that carried the slogan of human dignity amongst other slogans, but the successive governments largely involved in the same practices, therefore, justice still absent and the rule of law is an urgent demand which is being wasted by the lack of the political will to prevail it”.
