EOHR Strongly Condemns the murder of Mariam Abdel Salam and calls upon the British authorities to immediately investigate her death

 

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) strongly condemns the murder of Mariam Mostafa Abdelsalam an Egyptian student in the City of Nottingham in the United Kingdom of Great Britain.  Mariam an18-year-old girl was brutally attacked about three weeks earlier by a group of 10 females at a bus stop at the city on Nottingham according to eye witness reports. The attack left her in a coma since then. Mariam succumbedto her injuries this morning and passed away. The attack is reported to have been caught on surveillance cameras in the surrounding areas.

EOHR calls upon British and Egyptian authorities to open a serious investigation into this crime and hold the culprits accountable. The outcome of these investigations should be announced especially that the possibility of this being a hate crime should not be out ruled. This crime comes in violation of international human rights law and the universal declaration of human rightsthatguarantees the right to life to all humans.

From his Dr. Hafez Abu Seada the president of EOHR condemned the incident and called upon the authorities not to neglect holding those who violate the rights of Egyptian abroad accountable. Abu Seada added that suchcriminal incidents that threaten the lives and security of Egyptian abroadshould not go unpunished and that all states should uphold the values and principles of human rights.
