The Arabic Network for Human Rights said today that the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, which runs Egypt now until the election of a civil government in a democratic way , should work on a policy of information dissemination and circulation in a timely and transparent manner. To begin with , the list of hundreds of detainees names , detention places and the reasons for detention since 25/1/2011 should be declared immediately. News are spreading that those citizens are detained in military camps or prisons.


So far, The Arabic Network as well as other independent human rights organizations are receiving information of enforced disappearance. As well some families said that there are lists pf prisoners in military prisons and camps , however, most of the families do not know where to go or whom to contact to determine the fate of their kin.


The Arab Network advises that the Military Supreme Council should order the state owned newspapers to publish the lists of names of detainees , detention places and the reasons for detention since the start of the revolution. This is a step to reassure families on their kin, and make them feel that they have the right to information related to prisoners which is a significant step towards building a democratic government that respects the rights and will of its citizens.


The Arab Network asserts that the Prosecutor General has to announce from time to time the results of investigations with members of the former ruling party and police officers of the former regime in order that Egyptians especially young Egyptians who led the revolution would believe that the revolution has led to the state of the rule of law and that tracking the corrupt and repressive has begun, considering that all information relevant to the people, is the right of the people.


Egyptians do not want to feel that the old policies of absorption of anger are still prevailing . Corrupt lists and developments of investigations must be announced as well ad the names of corrupt and repressive figures who looted and terrorized the Egyptians in the previous era.
