Moreover, Mabrouk was responsible for the Muslim brotherhood case in the national security sector, and he was a participant in the investigation of the escape case of Morsi and other leading members in the Muslim brotherhood from the prison of Wadi El-Natron on the 5th day of the revolution; which overthrows the rule of the former president Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

EOHR assures that the resort of the political Islamic group to the organized violence in the beginnings of the 90’s against the political and security leaders never worked, On the contrary, it led to more violence and a series of arrests to the leaders of the Islamic groups and this phase ended by the intellectual revisions of the supporters of this trend, therefore the return in the use of violence once again by the Islamic groups is a living proof of the lack of their ideological and intellectual abilities, their inability to convince the street about their programs, and their ability to govern, thus entering into the violence, which will lead to failure inevitable at all.

Also the observatory for the combat of violence had observed high rates of violence against the police and the armed forces since the dispersing of “Rabaa” and “El-Nahda” sit-ins, which resulted in the occurrence of more than 160 martyrs among the police and the armed forces.

Accordingly, EOHR demands an urgent investigation in the case of the officer assassination and the referral of the offenders to judicial and insure the suitable punishment to be a deterrent for anyone tempted to violate the human right to live, which is the most sacred right adopted by the international conventions, agreements, and legislations.

From his side, Hafez Abu Seada, President of EOHR, has asserted that what happened to that national security officer is considered a criminal act of terrorism that targets everyone trying to serve the country in all the possible means, and he calls the government not to tolerate these terrorist groups that terrorize innocent people, and aims to spread chaos in all over the country.
