Reprisal Against Award-Winning Actors Amr Waked and Khaled Abol Naga for Speaking Out Against Repression

تعرب المنظمات الموقعة على هذا البيان عن إدانتها الشديدة للإجراءات الانتقامية التي اتخذتها السلطات المصرية ضد إثنين من الفنانين العالمين عمرو واكد وخالد أبو النجا بعد مشاركتهم في سلسلة من الأنشطة في واشنطن للتعريف بوضعية حقوق الإنسان في مصر. وتدعوا هذه المنظمات الحكومة المصرية إلى وقف جميع الإجراءات الانتقامية والاضطهاد الذي يتعرض له المدافعون والمدافعات عن حقوق الإنسان، والمنظمات غير الحكومية المستقلة.

We, the undersigned organizations strongly condemn the Egyptian authorities’ retaliation and intimidation of Amr Waked and Khaled Abol Naga following their participation in a series of human rights advocacy activities in Washington D.C. In addition, we call on the Egyptian government to halt all reprisals and persecution of human rights defenders and independent NGOs.
