Letter regarding EBRD operations in Egypt despite continued human rights violations
Advocacy letter | 23 December 2013
Prompted by gross human rights violations in Egypt this letter asks for clarification how the EBRD can continue to operate in Egypt even though the EBRD’s mandate states that the bank operates in “countries committed to and applying the principles of multiparty democracy, pluralism and market economics” and its continued operations in Egypt therefore amount to a blatant violation of its commitments as a public institution.
The EBRD responded to our letter on January 6, 2014. We’ve made the reply available for download as pdf.
