CAIRO – 26 July 2017: Victims of terrorism werehonored at the conference of Egyptian Organization for Human Rightsentitled “Legal support for the victims of terrorist operations” on Wednesday, July 26.
The victims of terrorism are honored temporarily during the conference“but financial and moral honoring shall follow,” said the Chairman of the Human Rights Committee of the House of RepresentativesAlaa Abed.
The conference held in a Giza hotel reviewed domestic and foreign action against terrorism said Abed.
Several states have drafted bills and legislations onstate-sponsored compensations for the victims of terrorism. Abed added that the committee has briefed the international community on what the MuslimBrotherhood did during the revolution, which included burning churches and killing civilians, police and armed forces officers and soldiers.
One of the top priorities of theUN Commission on Human Rights is to provide legal support to the victims of terrorist operations amid growing calls for approving the Congressionalbill proposed by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, confirmed Abed.
“It is time to call this enemy by its name and speak with clarity and moral authority,” Cruz said in a statement introducing the bill.If the U.S. declares them as terrorist group it will make supporting or dealing with them a criminal act for Americans.
The conference is held in cooperation with the Arab Federation for the Human Rights attended by representatives of political parties, university professors, human rights activists and victims of terrorism to discuss the possibility to restore the rights of the victims.
