Rights organization criticizes Amr Moussa’s stance on Arab protests

The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI) called on the secretary-general of the Arab League, Amr Moussa, to condemn Arab leaders who are killing and intimidating people who aspire to democracy and freedom.

In a statement issued on Saturday, ANHRI said Moussa should take at least a little of his time to denounce Arab leaders' oppression, and clearly express his rejection of the current events in Libya, Bahrain and Yemen.

The network also denounced Moussa's silence on the "oppression of ousted Egyptian dictator Hosni Muabrak" during his 30-year reign and the recent revolution that led to his ouster.  

The network further criticized him for only appearing in the media following the resignation of Mubarak to express interest in the presidency while failing to give much attention to the martyrs who have been falling in the protests sweeping Arab countries.
