埃及改革應從人權開始

國際特赦組織新聞稿
2011年2月11日

 

針對埃及局勢的巨變,國際特赦組織秘書長薩利爾.榭蒂(Salil Shetty)表示:

「本人謹向示威群眾致賀,因為他們無比的勇氣與決心,終於導致徹底的改變。

「總統一度企圖壓制這些和平抗爭,結果不但失敗,反而促使民眾求變的意志更加堅定。

「埃及人民以空前的規模走上街頭,要求尊嚴、人權和社會正義,已為全世界被壓迫人民樹立典範。

「獨夫下台並不是結束。三十年來荼毒埃及人民的壓迫體制尚未剷除,緊急狀態也還沒有解除。

「掌權人士必須抓住機會,讓過去的濫權體制成為歷史。人權改革,必須從現在開始。」

Egypt: Human rights reform essential as Hosni Mubarak steps aside

 

In response to dramatic developments in Egypt, Salil Shetty, Amnesty International’s Secretary General, said:

 

"I congratulate the protesters for their extraordinary courage and commitment to achieve fundamental change."

"Persistent attempts to put down peaceful protests have not only failed but redoubled the determination of those demanding change."

"The way Egyptians have taken to the streets in unprecedented numbers to demand dignity, human rights and social justice has been an inspiration to oppressed peoples everywhere."

"The departure of one man is not the end. The repressive system that Egyptians have suffered under for three decades has not gone away and the State of Emergency remains in place."

"Those in power must grasp this opportunity to consign the systematic abuses of the past to history. Human rights reform must begin now."
