"I voted in favour of this resolution. Egypt today is a troubled country. Basic human rights are under constant attack by extremist groups as well as authorities. The situation of Christians and women has worsened, regardless of new protective laws. Mass trials and death penalties passed are an indication of judicial partiality. Whereas it is symbolically important gesture that President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi visited for the first time a Christian Copt church, on the occasion of Christmas Eve, Egypt needs to put real effort in protecting Christian minority against terrorist attacks by islamist extremists and people under their influence. Those responsible for attacks against religious minorities should be dealt with under the responsibility of the authorities and experience real punishments. Allowing freedom of expression and assembly is a test case for any country that has overcome a long history of repressive regimes. I also support the call to ban the export to Egypt of surveillance technologies which could be used to spy on and repress citizens and, in line with the Wassenaar Arrangement, to ban the export of security equipment or military aid that could be used in the suppression of peaceful protest."@et1
