Sexual Torture

Shocking testimonies (translation captions can be activated) are contained in a recent video produced by Mosireen.  The short documentary interviews Egyptian young men and women subjected to sexual assault. This method of humiliation and torture, already common during the Mubarak period, is sadly still one of the routine horrors of detention. In fact evidence suggests the situation is much worse. It seems to be a calculated policy of deterring people, especially women, from joining street demonstrations. One witness, recently arrested, testifies in the film how his rapist discussed what was happening by phone with his commander.  You can’t help but feel deeply saddened.

    Your videos are not all in english (sometimes it’s not needed) ! I’m from Portugal it seems so far away from Egypt but not in our hearths ! I was so moved by the report of the last man speaking. How I wish to tell him to keep looking his kids in the eyes ! If he looks down nothing was worth it, only a great MAN could be so open and sincere. The best to Egypt.
