Tunisia's national press syndicate criticised in a statement Wednesday what it described as a "vicious attack" on press freedom in Egypt, days after police stormed the Journalists Syndicate building in Downtown Cairo in an "unprecedented raid." The Tunisian union expressed "absolute support and unconditional solidarity with [Egyptian journalists]," saying it stood by them "against the unjustified attack they are subjected to." It added in a statement that the administration of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi should hold "legal and ethical responsibility" for violations against journalists, citing detentions of writers over publishing issues, "forced disappearances" of others, and raids on their homes. Twenty seven journalists are currently behind bars in Egypt, according to head of press syndicate, Yehia Kalash. Some were sentenced to prison for publishing “false news” and belonging to the banned Muslim Brotherhood group. Others are standing trial on similar charges or are still in pre-trial detention. The Tunisian union demanded an "end to such practices as well as lifting restrictions Egyptian journalists face," which it said contravene press freedom laws and conventions. On Sunday night, security forces raided the syndicate premises and arrested two journalists, sparking public outrage and prompting dozens of journalists to stage a sit-in at the syndicate headquarters. Around 2,000 journalists rallied at the syndicate's meeting on Wednesday to discuss responses to the raid, chanting slogans of freedom of press. The syndicate warned journalists will go on strike if their demands, on top of which is the sacking of the interior minister, are not met by next week. The Tunisian union has urged all Tunisian journalists to write about the crisis, challenging a gag order imposed Tuesday by Egypt's top prosecutor on publishing on the arrest of the journalists.

An Italian security delegation is expected to arrive in Cairo on Saturday to discuss with Egyptian officials the ongoing investigation into the killing of Italian student Giulio Regeni in Cairo earlier this year, an Egyptian judicial source told Ahram Online. Italian sources told ANSA news agency that the Cairo meeting comes following a request by Egypt’s prosecutor-general Nabil Sadek. ANSA also reported that the Egyptian prosecutor-general provided the phone records of 13 individuals, which Rome prosecutors believe may provide clues to who killed Regeni. Regeni, a 28-year-old PhD student, vanished from the streets of Cairo in the evening hours of 25 January, with his body discovered in a ditch on the outskirts of the city nine days later, showing signs of extensive torture.

Egypt’s non-oil business activity declined for the seventh consecutive month in April as a continuing hard currency shortage and a weakening local currency made input materials less accessible, the Emirates NBD Egypt Purchasing Managers Index showed on Tuesday. The results of the monthly survey of purchasing managers are the first out since the Central Bank of Egypt allowed the Egyptian pound to depreciate to its lowest in over 10 years in mid-March, and announced a more flexible exchange rate policy to address a foreign-currency crunch. “Egypt’s private sector continues to struggle amid the FX shortage,” said Jean-Paul Pigat, senior economist at Emirates NBD, commenting on the survey’s findings. “Although further EGP weakness will eventually help lay the foundations for an economic recovery, in the short term uncertainty over the exchange rate could see additional declines in output, and a further rise in inflationary pressures,” he said.

Over 2,000 members of Egypt's press syndicate gathered on Wednesday at the syndicate headquarters in Cairo for an emergency meeting to respond to the recent storming of the HQ by police, as security forces surrounded the building from all directions and regime supporters hurled insults at members attending the meeting. The syndicate issued a statement at the meeting outlining a set of demands on the government including the dismissal of interior minister Madgy Abdel-Ghaffar and the release of journalists jailed in cases related to freedom of expression, as well as instructions for news outlets on how to support these demands. On the other hand, some local newspapers have started on Wednesday afternoon publishing the image of Egypt's interior minister in negative, instead of positive, as a form of protest. The move by the papers and websites comes an hour after an emergency assembly meeting of the Press Syndicate called for the dismissal of the minister as part of a set of demands on the government by the union in response to the storming of its headquarters by security forces earlier this week.

Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi has extended a state of emergency in designated areas of the North Sinai governorate for three further months, the state's official gazette reported. The initial decision to impose the state of emergency came in August 2013 by then-interim President Adly Mansour when violent unrest gripped the country following the ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi. The decision has since been extended for three-months at a time, with the latest being in January 2016. The recent decision was made due to the “dangerous security circumstances” that the governorate is facing. The emergency measures are to be applied in areas starting from the east of Rafah Hill passing by the international boundary line and until Al-Awga west of Al-Arish. More»

A Cairo cassation court acquitted earlier on Wednesday former Mubarak-era prime minister Ahmed Nazif of corruption in a retrial. The court acquitted Nazif of graft and profiteering charges. The former prime minister was convicted in 2012 of graft and profiteering and sentenced to three years in prison. In July 2012 a criminal court examining his appeal issued a new sentence of five years. Nazif served as prime minister from 2004 until former president Hosni Mubarak replaced him during the popular revolution against his rule in January 2011. More»

Egypt's foreign ministry said on Monday evening that its embassy in Tripoli was following up on the identification of the bodies of Egyptians who were killed in western Libya last week following a fight with human traffickers. The bodies are being prepared to return to Egypt. Thirteen Egyptians were killed in the central town of Bani Walid in western Libya last Tuesday during a fight with the families of local human traffickers. The ministry said in an official statement that the Egyptian embassy in Tripoli, whose operations are in Cairo due to the unstable security situation in the Libyan capital, was looking to determine the identity of the victims after successfully transferring the bodies from Bani Walid to Tripoli.

Members of Egypt's Journalist Syndicate are expected to head on Wednesday to the syndicate headquarters in Cairo to attend an "urgent" general assembly meeting over the Sunday storming of the syndicate building by police to arrest two journalists. The syndicate, which includes more than 8,000 registered journalists who work for state-owned and private news outlets, condemned the arrest of journalists Amr Badr and Mahmoud El-Sakka on Sunday. The prosecution ordered that the two be detained for 15 days pending investigation into charges of “plotting to overthrow the regime” and “spreading false news.” Badr and El-Sakka, who run the progressive news website Yanair (January), were among dozens of activist and journalists who were ordered arrested a few days before the 25 April protests against the recent Egyptian-Saudi Red Sea island agreement. According to the press syndicate, 46 journalists were arrested while covering the protests. Most of them were released a few hours later. More»

Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi told a US congressional delegation in Cairo on Tuesday that the issue of human rights and freedoms in Egypt should not be approached from a "Western perspective" due to differences in challenges and domestic and regional conditions. Egypt's government is currently facing domestic and international criticism over what numerous rights groups and media outlets have described as human rights abuses and a clampdown on press freedoms. al-Sisi had said last month in response to the criticism that he understands some Western concerns over the human rights situation, but urged critics to bear in mind that Egypt faces "persistent attempts from evil powers" that aim to isolate the country. In an official statement by the presidency, spokesman Alaa Youssef said that al-Sisi stated during a meeting with the US delegation – headed by the chairman of the US House Committee on Homeland Security Michael McCaul – that the Egyptian government was committed to the rule of law and upholding the values of democracy.
