In response, the council said that the military trials were the result of the chaos and acts of hooliganism that spread after the revolution, and were aimed at restoring stability [Same language the Pharaoh used!]. The various acts of torture, meanwhile, were individual cases that were immediately investigated [Again, same language and the same lies!] , it said....."
