Trial Watch Project
One of the most important projects of the Committee for Justice is the analysis of violations of fair trial rules. The project, called Trial Watch, is concerned with the systematic violations of human rights in both the military and civilian judiciary, especially the Emergency Supreme State Security Courts and Terrorism Circuits. This covers the period following the July 2013 events. The project analyzes the various stages of the trials according to their available papers, with the aim of submitting periodic reports on the patterns of ongoing violations against detainees to contribute to creating a more just judicial system and a more humane penal system in Egypt, by taking the first steps in this regard – monitoring and analyzing case files.
The Committee for Justice collects credible and documented information to support the capacity of stakeholders engaged in defense, research and formulating public discourse to contribute to the protection of civilian victims of unfair trials or who may be subject to such abuse.
