‘Put Mubarak on trial for human rights violations’

Posted by on February 8, 2011 0 Comment

Berlin, Feb 8 (DPA) Germany should put Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on trial for human rights breaches if he seeks refuge in a German hospital, Amnesty International said in Berlin Tuesday.

The rights group spoke up amid speculation, so far denied by Berlin, that Mubarak might seek medical care abroad as a face-saving way of leaving Cairo without resigning before a September election.

Monika Lueke, head of the German arm of Amnesty International, said it would file a complaint to the German federal prosecutor, who has power to investigate human rights violations abroad, if Mubarak, 82, arrived.

“Mubarak represents a system in which people have been systematically tortured and abused for decades,” she said.
