Our Ambassador in Cairo raised the arrests of LGBT people and forced anal examinations with the Egyptian Government in December 2017. We are concerned about reports of torture and mistreatment in detention in Egypt and continue to raise these issues with the Egyptian authorities.
We have raised our concerns in public through the UN Human Rights Council and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's Human Rights Priority Country reports, and in private in meetings with Egyptian officials in London and Cairo. The UK wants to see more political progress and better protection of human rights in Egypt, including implementation of the rights guaranteed by Egypt's Constitution.
