Ahmed Ezz has submitted a complaint to the EU that claims he is being subjected to "severe violations of his rights, unlawful imprisonment and an unjust revolutionary trial," Al-Shorouk newspaper reported Saturday.
Currently in prison having been convicted in a corruption case, and charged in several more such cases, Ezz claims in the memo that the rulings issued against him were "political, rushed, reckless and defective" and intended to satisfy the Egyptian street.
According to Al-Shorouk, the complaint was prepared by an American law office and is titled "The collapse of the rule of law and the imposition of revolutionary justice."
"The coming months will be conclusive. If Egypt wants to make a transition to a democratic society, then justice and transparency cannot be ignored."
The memo further claims that an international monitor reported several violations in Ezz's trial.
