Report 1: Brutality unpunished and unchecked: Egypt’s military kills and torture protesters with impunity highlights patterns of violations at three key demonstrations, and documents the brutal crackdown unleashed by the army during the 16-month rule by  the SCAF.
  
It focuses on:
  • The Maspero protests of October 2011, when 27 mainly Coptic Christian protesters were killed; 
  • Events outside the Cabinet Offices in  December 2011, when 17 protesters died; 
  • The Abbaseya sit-in in May 2012, when up to 12 people were killed.
Report 2: Agents of repression: Egypt’s police and the case for reform, outlines the total impunity enjoyed by the three main police forces in Egypt – the Central Security Forces (CSF), widely known as the riot police; the General Investigations Police, Egypt’s national police force; and the abolished State Security Investigation (SSI) service, highlighting the urgent need for sweeping reform of the police force. 

The report focuses on three key events:
  • Police violence during clashes with protesters at Mohamed Mahmoud Street near the Ministry of Interior in November 2011.
  • Police abuses during protests in the same street following the killings of Al-Ahly football club supporters in February 2012. 
  • Police violence during clashes in front of Nile City Towers, in Cairo, in August 2012.
