Human Rights Watch has expressed its growing alarm at the number of targeted arrests of journalists and protesters by the military.
„One thing that has been of serious concern to us in the last few days has been the increasing number of targeted arrests both of journalists, of human rights defenders, and of youth activists,“ Heba Morayef HRW representative in Cairo told me.
„This kind of short term, arbitrary arrest, is very worrying in terms of things to come,“ she says. „We see these short term arrests as part of a deterrent strategy to try to discourage people going back to the [Tahrir] square.“
„It was the military doing the arresting… it has become increasingly clear that the military is not on the side of the protesters,“ Morayef says. She pointed out that it was a „dangerous“ tactic by the military because police abuse was one the reasons that sparked the original unrest.
Some of the arrested witness beatings and abuse of fellow detainees, she said.
