Dr. Violette Daguerre, President of the Arab Committee for Human Rights, will arrive in Egypt on Sunday evening to submit a request to Egyptian government to monitor the military tribunal of Muslim Brotherhood top leaders.


Violette Daguerre visited Egypt weeks ago to monitor the fourth session of the military tribunal but she was denied access to the court.
 
The Egyptian security forces broke into Dagher"s room in Shepherd hotel in central Cairo during her previous visit and seized papers related to monitoring the fourth session of the military tribunal, an incident that was committed also against famous UK journalist Yvonne Ridley whose room was also stormed by Egyptian security forces in Semiramis Intercontinental hotel and papers over the case were also seized.
 
Dagher, the chairman of the Arab Committee for Human Rights, said in a phone call to Ikhwanweb that a session will be held today in Paris suburb attended by the Arab Committee for Human Rights and other human rights organizations to discuss freedom of expression and press issues in the Arab world. She said that the session will discuss also human rights violations in the military tribunals against MB leaders.
 
Dagher said the Paris-based Arab Committee for Human Rights works through the civil society and human rights institutions for making oppressors stop such violations.
 
"They want to hide truth but all the world knows very well they hold fake trials", said Dagher about the military trial.
 
The president of the Arab Committee for Human Rights added that the measures followed by the Egyptian government in the military tribunal trying 40 MB leaders topped by engineer Khairat Al-Shater the MB second deputy chairman" show very well how far such trials are fake and those detainees are innocent.
 
Asked about the moves taken by international organizations to stop the military tribunal against MB leaders, Dagher said:" They are currently moving to prove that such trials are false".
"Measures are currently taken and pressures are currently exercised to stop such oppression", said Dagher.
 
Dagher, a prominent human rights activist, said the measures are secret but she confirmed that these moves are carried out on the international level and are strong to attract attention to the military tribunal against the Muslim Brotherhood leaders.
