January 12th, 2012 by Editor

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) calls the prosecutor general for dropping the charges to Aiman Noor, the head of Al Ghad Al Gadid Political Party, Mamdoh Hamza, consulting engineer, Sheikh Mazhar Shahin, the imam of Omar Makram Mosque, Nawara Negn the political activist and Tarek Al Kholy, a leader of April 6 Movement.

Ibrahim Rashad and Abdel Naser Mahmoud, who were charged with damaging public buildings and attacking military people, claimed receiving finance from Noor and Hamza for controlling Tahrir Square and deployment of thugs.

After questioning Noor on the official report no. 8629, year 2011, the prosecutor general released him, but he also was banned from traveling abroad. The investigation judge delayed questioning the others, charged with urging people to burn the Scientific Complex, to January 15, 2012. Mamdoh Hamza will be questioned, when he arrives in Egypt.

Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR, confirmed that those protesters on January 25, 2011faced decades of corruption, intimidation, oppression and domination and struggled hard to achieve freedom and democracy in Egypt. So, those people are to be honored instead of getting them out of the political life, while the real perpetrators and corruption members are enjoying freedom, without any serious charges.
