The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) welcomes reopening investigation on murdering General Mohammed Al Batran, the head of Prisons’ Sector, Egyptian Ministry of Interior. The Prosecutor General refered the complaint no.10656, year 2011, submitted by Hafez Abu Seada, Attorney at Law, to the Technical Office to look into murder.   

The complaint documents the details of killing General Al Batran, the head of Prisons’ Sector, Egyptian Ministry of Interior, in Katta Prison, on January 29, 2011, when he refused allowing opening the gates and escaping prisoners and detainees in order to take the country to massive chaos.  

Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR, stated that the police withdrawal from important locations and opening prisons leaded to terrifying and frightening all the Egyptian people. It was a step taken by the corruption members to oblige the protesters to get home and stop calling for change. The prosecution general office archived the complaint no. 1100, year 2011, which leaded EOHR to submit the complaint no.10656, year 2011.

Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR, stressed on the necessity of providing the suitable environment for having fair and public trial within a fair, transparent and independent court. He also stated that the prosecution general office members play such an important role in achieving justice. So, the roles of their performance should comply with the principals of fair trial and human rights.
