Egypt: How French arms were used to crush dissent
A scathing report

Amnesty International منظمة العفو الدولية


Since the 25 January 2011 uprising, part of the ‘Arab Spring’, a series of tumultuous political events in Egypt has been accompanied by waves of brutal repression, leaving thousands dead and injured. While condemning the violence, many States have continued to supply military and security equipment to the Egyptian security forces, with France emerging as a leading supplier. Of particular concern is the export of at least 200 armoured vehicles which have been used to violently crush dissent in Cairo and Alexandria – an export that is in clear beach of France’s international and regional legal obligations. France must urgently strengthen its arms export control system to ensure that it does not fuel further abuses in Egypt and other countries.
