8:18 pm
a supporter he's made no efforts to campaign against him although the serious challenges were forced to pull out of the race or were arrested with several international rights groups calling the election a farce while egypt's jailed former president mohamed morsy is being held in conditions that could amounts to torture according to reports from a group of u.k. parliamentarian's the detention review panel to investigate by morsy is family found on the balance of probabilities probabilities rather that these conditions constitute. cruel inhumane and degrading treatment after reviewing evidence from various sources the panel said morphy is receiving inadequate medical care for his diabetes and liver disease which could lead to premature death the report concluded that most his detention could meet the threshold for torture under egyptian and international law a crime of universal jurisdiction for which president fattah el-sisi could in principle be responsible the employees receive no response to requests to visit
8:19 pm
will say and they report the egyptian government to allow a visit by reputed will outside body well for more on this i'm joined in the studio by crispin te's a member of the u.k. parliament and former chair of the foreign affairs select committee and a member of that panel thanks very much for coming into al-jazeera to discuss this report this of all of the evidence you did i think approach the egyptian authorities they wouldn't let you in to visit the former president what have you based this report mostly all over then try to look at all the available evidence so there's. a transcript from mohamed morsy himself a trial in november twenty seventh teen where he gives an account of his health and his conditions then there are a number of reports from his family. and his lawyers of human rights watch reports honest international reports united states state department of course on saying he's in egypt the united kingdom government's human rights work so
8:20 pm
there's been a whole plethora of evidence all of which corroborates the general narrative which mohammed morsi was giving us is his trial which is a record of transcript no surprise i suppose that certainly the school pins units in tora prison has such a bad reputation we have some of our own colleagues who were held there for over four hundred days but the report goes into who might respond. simple and it goes all the way to the top once you base found well the chain of command is responsible for conditions of prison and it is. beyond doubt that the current president of egypt is going to have an interest in the incarceration conditions of his predecessor. and the idea that everyone is. not paying interest in the commission is being held i think is highly unlikely so therefore that engages the entire chain
8:21 pm
of command up to the presidency who i'm pretty certain would be aware of the conditions in which he's being held of course they wouldn't let you in to see him where i've often heard about conditions that doesn't seem to be an awful lot of effort by the egyptian authorities to take any notice how can you have an impact and hope to increase improve this conditions for the president if the government and the british government isn't willing to put pressure because of this which are probably not what why should they take any notice of this report well this is the way the family is trying to get a review of his conditions in the only way that's actually open to them certainly within the united kingdom of us in the. united kingdom solicitors that represent the freedom and justice party to put a panel together then it's an issue about the credibility of the panel and i believe we have put together a very credible panel i have received foreign affairs experience over some time and
8:22 pm
considerable experience of middle east issues. and was a justice minister and did minister for prisons there have some lockers that and then i was joined by dr paul williams who is a practicing general practitioner a labor member of parliament and then a conservative calling in the house of lords who is also. a minister in the ministry of justice which is actually quite hawkish on issues such as human rights and appreciation of of your opinion situations into british human rights so. that ought to give comfort to. gyptian parliamentarians are accusing me of having. a particular view about political islam which i think is highly wholly untrue but even if they did the fact that we operated by university. for example. panel should give comfort the we will have reviewed the evidence properly and come to a balanced for judgment see if the gyptian authorities respond because simply thanks
