New forensic report shows El-Gendy died from torture

New forensic report shows El-Gendy died from torture | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Forensic committee formed by Egyptian prosecutors shows that slain activist Mohamed El-Gendy died from torture, not from a car crash as ministry of interior claimed.

 

A forensic committee stated on Wednesday that the death of activist Mohamed El-Gendy resulted from torture and not from a car accident, as a previous forensic report had asserted.

 

El-Gendy, 28, was a member of opposition group the Egyptian Popular Current.

He was arrested along with several protesters during anti-government rallies that took place on the second anniversary of the January 25 revolution.

Security sources later told Reuters that El-Gendy was taken to a state security camp where he was interrogated and tortured.

However, the interior ministry denied the accusations, saying that El-Gendy was hit by a car on 28 January and taken to Cairo’s Hilal Hospital where he died some days later.

A moment of silence for slain activist and member of the Popular Current, Mohamed El-Gendy, is to take place Sunday on Qasr El-Nil Bridge near Tahrir Square.

El-Gendy was reported dead Monday after having been allegedly tortured by police following his arrest during 27 January clashes near Tahrir Square.

On Tuesday, Emad El-Deeb deputy head of the chief coroner’s office, told Al-Ahram Arabic news website that forensic authorities have discovered that El-Gendy’s death was due to head trauma that led to a brain hemorrhage.

Prosecution says activist's body will not be reexamined

Prosecution says activist's body will not be reexamined | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Attorney General for Central Cairo Prosecutions, Hamdi Mansour, rejected the possibility that the body of activist and member of the Popular Current Mohamed al-Gendy could be examined in another autopsy.

“The body cannot be re-dissected again. Autopsy should be performed one time only. It has been agreed on forming a tripartite committee to draft a medical report over Gendy's death, in response to defense of the victims family,” he added.

The prosecution received the forensic examiners report on Gendy's death, which was attributed to a car accident. The report denied claims of torture.

It also said eyewitnesses testified that Gendy died as a result of a car accident on the 6 October Bridge.
