In the aftermath of the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak and the assumption of control by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces in Egypt, there have been continued reports of protesters disappearing or being convicted by military courts.

The transitional road is not without its obstacles in Egypt. The Christian Science Monitor reports that “the very institution in charge of transitioning to a more democratic Egypt – the Army – has been acting quite unrevolutionary itself. Replicating Mubarak-era policies, the Army has severely beaten protesters on at least two occasions in the past week, and since Jan. 28 has been trying civilian protesters in military courts, denying them basic rights.”
