11:06 pm
leaders have embraced l.c.c. as a strategic and commercial partner so they printed clearly little question so that i may think i ma. c.c. was able to say there's the threat from isis you want to defeat it give us the tools and we'll take care of this for you. we have a fantastic relationship with egypt and we appreciate what you're doing but israel's sisi really such a good bargain for the west. in april 2800 egyptian president of the fatah el-sisi secured a 2nd time in office after winning 97 percent of the vote yet the results were
11:07 pm
hardly surprising. there were technically 2 candidates but the other candidate was the most optimistic. in fact the supporter who had stepped into the contest at the 11th hour to prevent the embarrassment of a one horse race. 3 men from within the military establishment had initially challenge how seizing for the presidency in a very short space of time all 3 candidates were dispensed with by at the c.c. regime salmiya not a retired general was charged with breaching military regulations. consul was a little known army colonel was court martialed and ahmed shafik a former air force commander withdrew from the race after being held in a luxury hotel for a month. both recently president and sisi expressed regrets that no one
11:08 pm
was willing to run against him but the situation became increasingly embarrassing for kairos partners in the west. parts of the us government were communicating to sisi into those around him that we were concerned about his efforts to drive out every credible pawn and to his reelection i think it may even have been addressed by vice president and spun he went to cairo earlier and 28 team so that message was being conveyed. with no real contest the main focus for sisi became obtaining legitimacy to a high voter turnout and. people were promised that they would get to mecca or they would get an approved electricity supply in their town or they would get and use water system.
11:09 pm
to live in for the little let up then. i did but this is what it. thank you. and 2011 the revolution in tahrir square put an end to hosni mubarak's 30 year regime and raised hopes that egypt will become the middle east's largest democracy . but this so-called arab spring was short lived. since taking power in 2030 l.c.c. has ruled the country amid allegations of human rights violations as well as an escalation in armed attacks in the sinai peninsula that have killed more than 3000 people. egypt is a key u.s. ally and a major european business partner western countries are often accused of overlooking

egypt's human rights record and its disregard of the rule of law because of the country's geo political economic and strategic importance. a case in point is that of an italian ph d. student from the university of cambridge julio regime who disappeared in cairo on the 25th of january 26th. the young italian was found dead 9 days later in a ditch on the city's outskirts his half naked body bore the signs of heavy torture . in old foster care the toilet or toward the. northeast i mean to the to where ed of am

11:34 pm
in 2011 nobody could anticipate that in just 2 years egypt would once again be under military dictatorship. an american egyptian citizen mohammad saltire got on a plane to cairo and quickly found himself at the front lines of the revolt. thousands of people gathered outside the presidential palace. i was crying my eyes out i thought for sure they were going to fire the 3 were going to die say my last prayers letter and in the famed moment. the army
11:35 pm
turns on the speakers of the announcement. a former air force commander hosni mubarak had been the face of egypt's military dictatorship since 1981. he was gone but his military regime remains largely intact. when the muslim brotherhood's candidate mohamed morsi became egypt's 1st democratically elected president the military worked to undermine him from day one. by concentrating power in his own hands and with the economy in freefall morsi lost the support of many egyptians. many egyptians who had supported the idea of the ouster of president mubarak
11:36 pm
suddenly turned around and said hold on this is also not what we want and suddenly you had a brand new type of conflict inside egyptian society. when hundreds of thousands of protesters poured into the streets on the 1st anniversary of morsy selection the egyptian military exploited the situation to remove. l.c.c. who morsi had put in charge of the army gave him 48 hours to come up with a political solution. both morsi himself and his senior advisers did not see this coming they knew there was opposition they knew that there was this can and but they didn't think the egyptian military would actually move against them in the final analysis on the 3rd of july 2030 l.c.c. had morsi arrested the new military leadership suspended the constitution and also
11:37 pm
arrested 300 muslim brotherhood party members and officials the initial attack on morsy supporters soon expanded to include all political opposition to l.c.c. . egypt occupies a position of strategic importance for the west in the middle east it is israel's next door neighbor and controls access to the suez canal. if in a very simple bargain the united states has provided egypt with a large amount of military aid every year and in return egypt has you know kept the peace with israel has provided access to the 3 ask for american warships and have provided america with really a very strong pillar in the middle of a very volatile region. when l.c.c. to power in 20. 13 relations began to crack there was
11:38 pm
a general willingness to try to work with the new regime out of the interest in preserving the bilateral relationship so they were willing to give the new military regime an opportunity to prove themselves l.c.c. soon showed the obama administration was he was capable of and the weeks after the military takeover morsi supporters had occupied 2 major thoroughfares in cairo they are not a square and the road in front of iraq or do we have mosque. in august the military cleared these camps with an unprecedented show of force. mohammed salt was there his father a deputy minister in the short lived muslim brotherhood government was amongst those addressing the protesters from the stage. here i was taking pictures come back put my phone on wait for think not
11:39 pm
a con and then tweeting taking phone calls from c.n.n. al-jazeera this and that. i mean i have time to think and i think what though and i get hit. there is this thing. here again. you can almost taste it and. that of the bodies falling anywhere you look bodies upon baden's. human rights watch documented 817 victims but the number may be as high as a 1000. united states strongly condemns. the steps that have been taken by egypt's interim government and security forces we
11:40 pm
deplore violence against civilians president obama canceled a joint military exercise and froze part of the $1300000000.00 in military aid to egypt receives from the u.s. every year. but l.c.c. continued his crackdown undeterred. prison get this much space. i have been a fist you've got to sleep you've got you've got to think shifts keeping with people has one bathroom for 50 plus men of course you're so you're forced to strip naked except john where you're being in your head shaved is totally you really. have to go on a hunger strike because it was the only means of resistance. no hard food for 489 days. they would bring my dad to the next ward have let me hear his screens and. come tell me listen this is what's happening to
11:41 pm
your dad you know we can and there's just break your strike. there's no more with. no law. in may 2050 with salt on still in prison the obama administration formally reported to the us congress that arbitrary and unlawful killings were taking place in egypt yet at the same time the u.s. officially resumed military aid to egypt. l.c.c. remain there man to be reckoned with in cairo. your hearing concerns from the saudis from the iraqis from the israelis that the freeze in assistance to egypt was counterproductive that they were pleased with that there was a desire to i think address some of their concerns. the united arab emirates and saudi arabia invested in l.c.c.
11:42 pm
from early on. in the weeks after his military takeover the u.a.e. alone transferred $3000000000.00 to egypt while the saudis gave a $2000000000.00 central bank deposit $2000000000.00 in energy products and $1000000000.00 in cash without the very extensive economic support that the egyptian military got from the gulf states for example in 2013 i don't know whether they they would have carried out the coup or they would have been able to make a go of it. saudi arabia support came with a political price. in 2017 l.c.c. agreed to give the disputed islands of tehran and sun a few which sits between saudi arabia and egypt sinai peninsula to the saudis. the decision was hugely unpopular in egypt and sparks the biggest protests since 25
11:43 pm
. but l.c.c. rode the storm and kept the aid flowing. egypt has at times or saved much larger sums of money with new allies particularly in the gulf but the aid from the united states is symbolically very important diplomatically very important and it's not something they want to see she was able to say that there's a threat from isis you want to defeat it we're your partner give us the tools and we'll take care of this for you and he would make the argument that egypt is too big to fail if egypt does collapse if the islamists run amok or the economy goes down this is going to have to sastre its consequences for the region and for europe . the european union has trying to strike a balance between legitimate security concerns and respect for human rights. but
11:44 pm
many member states have adopted a business as usual policy. but unfortunately we still have a very weak common ground in europe when it comes to how to deal with egypt. a dutch member of the european parliament met each a shocker initiated a resolution that condemned human rights violations in egypt however she does that leaders of the influential member states will form and lead. we very much pointed out that human rights repression violations. executions torture censorship closing of n.g.o.s is not acceptable and you want to hear such strong words from let's say berlin or paris or london very much for 3 years shock a push to get the resolution through the european parliament besides denouncing the
11:45 pm
high number of death penalty executions and the lack of fair trials in egypt there was another point she stressed. i think we've learned some very important lessons in 20112012 when we found that e.u. made systems were actually used to track down activists in egypt and so ever since we've been pushing in the european parliament and i've been leading the efforts on the export controls of surveillance systems to make sure that human rights are criteria to measure before an export license is granted and despite this statement of principle we see that in practice such export controls are not really lived up to in fact there are serious questions whether it may be the case that julio regina who was brutally murdered may have been tracked and traced with italian maid systems and software. after the robber massacre and 2013 e.u.
11:46 pm
member states agreed to suspend the exports to egypt of any equipment that might be used for internal repression. yet 12 out of 28 e.u. member states ignored the suspension. since 2040 italy has a exported weapons to egypt worth some 40000000 euros. germany has made deals for over 1600000000 euros including light arms and onward vehicles and france has topped all the rest with over 6000000000 euros in sales including combat vehicles like those reportedly used in that up. massacre. the faceted in a possible down leadership to the effect little folly put me off when this involved people what is it on religion. since she was old enough to see oh these are good
11:47 pm
multiphase don't know what i should be let out of. a false sense song called good luck republic to see don't. show to concede only if you take it especially as for cost of the despair centers on the temple a kind of democracy a disease that mr centers and plate but. post the problem with the mccourty book mattie. inexistent it at fetlar only per. se you only have even been into. the family's affair because of a disadvantage is it. you don't then i'm in for some question except the cook and not the usual modern day listen so many of the given him a piece in london those are simply not clearly. there were questions so that i may think i mock their competition of you must implement so you have got this was the nail of democracy yet i guess you feel on. your manolo me see
11:48 pm
if you will additional. dancing or that's all bullet i'll celeste headlee delusion always deadly violence has been on the rise in egypt especially in the sinai peninsula the northeast corner of this remote region has become for european leaders one of the middle east's hottest front lines against all groups the c.c. government appears to be struggling to contain this threat of islamic state militants who are based in the sinai and of course now with the effect of collapse of slotnick state power in iraq and syria there are indications that at least some of those fighters are now coming from those areas into the sinai but it's hard to know what's really happening in northeast side as the independent media have not been allowed into the area for years. imagine the feel for. whether agencies. going back it up. to me that it will get it
11:49 pm
and then that's another leg on this thing that's in the cia very baumberger our policy here fredricka i mean if you need any and you know to do any good and. i'm confirmed leagues from the area reveal horrific pictures of the egyptian army's brutal crackdown amid increasing concerns for the civilian population. for all the force to point to the egyptian army has yet to regain control of the area while armed attacks appear to be spreading through. to egypt in nov 27th president announced the final offensive of the school. for the school. for.
