Egypt tor­ture claim

Pretoria News Weekend - - WORLD -

CAIRO: Egyp­tian and in­ter­na­tional rights groups have filed a crim­i­nal com­plaint with Paris pros­e­cu­tors over the sale of French sur­veil­lance tech­nol­ogy to Egypt.

The fil­ing by the Cairo In­sti­tute for Hu­man Rights Stud­ies, re­lates to the role tech­nol­ogy could play in op­pres­sion in Egypt. The French com­pany, Nexa Tech­nolo­gies, was for­merly called Amesys. This re­quest for in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­volves com­plic­ity to tor­ture and dis­ap­pear­ances. – AP
