Egypt's State Information Service, a government agency that is directly subordinate to the Egyptian Presidency, has frequently denied reports concerning human rights violations in Egypt, especially those issued by human rights organizations believed to be politicized.

Concerning ex-prisoners, the Egyptian Parliament Human Rights Committee last June announced holding a set of meetings during the coming period to discuss social hardships and stigma of these persons.

The political leadership has also affirmed keenness to respect human rights in Egypt, saying, in a meeting with the African Commission on Human and peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) delegation in Cairo in April, that promoting human rights is one of Egypt’s priorities in its 2030 Vision.

He also emphasized the state’s role in promoting religious tolerance, acceptance and coexistence, as well as entrenching the concept of citizenship.

As Egypt hosts millions of expats and refugees, Sisi said they practice all their rights and activities freely according to UN conventions.
