The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) has filed a report on behalf of the Egyptian Committee for Fact Finding and Combating Corruption (ECFFCC) on Monday, 7/2/2011 to the general prosecutors, Abd Al-Mageed Mahmoud, against Major General Habib al-Adly, the former Minister of Interior.

They seek to take all the necessary legal and administrative measures to start an immediate investigation, claiming that he committed several crimes against the Egyptian people in general, and the peaceful protestors in Tahrir Square and the different Egyptian governorates in particular especially on the days of the 25th and the 28th of January, 2011.

This report includes a request that EOHR be able to attend the investigations because it represents some of the victims of these violations in order to be able to push the civil prosecution measures in their favor.

Report number 1416 for the year 2011 included in the indictments of the general prosecutor, refers to the former Minister of Interior committing crimes against the peaceful protestors on 25/1/2011 through issuing direct orders to officers and soldiers to fire live and rubber bullets in addition to shotguns and tear gas bombs which led to the death of 4 citizens in the city of Suez and the injury of hundreds all over the country, and through allowing police officersand agents to use excessive force to attack the peacefully protesting citizens through hitting them with sticks, wooden clubs, electrical sticks and water which is considered an incitement to commit the crime of physical torture.

The accusations also include allowing them to chase the peaceful protestors using armored cars which put the lives of hundreds at risk.

EOHR has also accused al-Adly of committing crimes on Friday, 28/1/2011 for the repetitive issuance of orders to officers and soldiers to shoot live and rubber bullets as well as shotguns at demonstrators who assembled peacefully.
This led to the death of tens of citizens in different parts of Egypt including the governorates of Greater CairoAlexandria, Suez, North Sinai and Dakalheya, in addition to the injury of hundreds in different places.

The accusations directed against al-Adly regarding the Egyptian people in general according to the report filed by EOHR, include him issuing orders to the police force, including officers and police agents to immediately withdraw from their positions, which contradicts the decision of the president of the republic who issued an order for armed forces to be stationed in cities to preserve security and order in cooperation with the police force.

This has led to exposing public peace and security to danger and the escape of prisoners and detainees from prisons and police stations which resulted in terrorizing unsuspecting citizens and causing a state of panic and chaos all over the country due to the acts of robbery and looting that were committed and to the acts of some thugs who attacked public and private properties. Such attacks included burning some bank branches, destroying ATM machines and looting the branches of some grand commercial malls and burning them down.
