Violette Daghere, head of the Paris-based Arab Committee on Human Rights, is currently in Cairo to observe developments in human rights issues in Egypt , including the notorious military tribunals against 40 Muslim Brotherhood senior members, recent violations of freedom of expression, particularly the prison sentence against 4 editors of independent newspapers.

 Daghere is also expected to monitor the status of judges and government pressures to prevent them from gaining independence. On top of Daghere’s agenda as well is the case of barring Judge Hisham Bastawisi, vice-president of the Cassation Court , from attending a tribunal to be held in Brussels late this month against Israeli atrocities in the 2006 Lebanon war. This came after invitations from multiple rights groups (one of which is the ACHR) to Bastawisi to take part in the tribunal as an international judge. She considered what happened as a flagrant violation of judges’ rights.  

Daghere confirmed that she contacted a number of high rank government officials in an attempt to meet Suzan Mubarak wife of President Mubarak, the Minister of Justice Mamdouh Marei, the Interior Minister Habib Al-Adli, and Secretary General of the National Council for Motherhood and Childhood Musheera Khattab.Violette Daghere is a prominent human rights activist and a professor of Psychology in France . She is especially known for her advocacy for prisoners of conscience and Iraqi refugees in the Arab world.
