Complaint filed against French surveillance company over sale of surveillance technology to Egypt

The International Federation of Human Rights (FIDH) and the Ligue des Droits de l’Homme (IDH), with the support of the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS) filed a complaint against the French company Amesys (renamed Nexa Technologies) for the sale of surveillance technology to the Egyptian regime. The criminal investigation was requested based on the ‘complicity to torture and enforced disappearances in Egypt.’ The FIDH lawyer said that despite being pursued by judicial authorities in France, the company continue to sell their surveillance technologies.
