Egypt, France was selling anti-dissident systems to Al-Sisi
France sold a total population surveillance system to Egypt. An apparatus able to track down dissidents. The agreement between Paris and the president Al-Sisi dates back to the period between 2014 and 2021, right in the middle of the disappearance and murder of Giulio Regeni, found dead in Cairo on January 3, 2017. This was revealed by the investigative website Disclose, which launched an investigation into secret relations between Paris and the Al Sisi regime. And he claims that one of the companies involved, Nexa, was put under investigation by the Paris prosecutor’s office on October 21 for “complicity in acts of torture and forced disappearances in Egypt between 2014 and 2021”.
The news arrives right on the eve of the Draghi-Macron summit, who on Friday morning will sign – continues Repubblica – the “Treaty between the French Republic and the Italian Republic for enhanced bilateral cooperation”. The agreement is destined to change the balance in Europe. In absolute secrecy about the text, the Elysée wanted to explain what the pact is not. It’s not true, Macron’s Sherpas specified, that the pact would “reinforce a predatory attitude of France on the Italian economy”.
