CAIRO: The National Council for Human Rights’ fact finding committee report regarding the dispersed Muslim Brotherhood sit-ins is scheduled to be released Wednesday, sources told Youm7.

The report seeks to answer questions concerning the disengagement of the sit-ins and the commitment of police forces to international standards of human rights.

The sources said the report is over 70 pages, adding that it contains eyewitness accounts and other forms of evidence.

Sources claim the NCHR report said Brotherhood members and supporters began firing on police forces with live ammunition in addition to using protesters as human shields which resulted in causalities.

The sources also said the report blames the Ministry of Interior for not dispersing the sit-ins earlier and puts the blame for the death toll largely in the hands of the Brotherhood, adding that there were weapons present inside Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda Square sit-ins.

The report explained that an earlier dispersal would have reduced the number of victims.
