Police surveillance and precautionary measures

The undersigned organizations call upon the Egyptian authorities to stop using police supervision penalty and precautionary measures, and call for the unconditional release of those subjected to it. These measures restrict the freedom of the observed, and place them under the eyes of the various security bodies. This can be considered as an extension of the systematic policies of the Egyptian authorities to encircle freedom of opinion and expression. The organizations also express their full solidarity with those subject to such sanctions and arbitrary measures.
