Al-Azhar investigates allegations professor touched students

Al-Azhar investigates allegations professor touched students | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Al-Azhar Grand Sheikh Ahmed Al-Tayyeb has ordered an urgent investigation into allegations related to unspecified sexual harassment within Al-Azhar University.

University head Osama al-Abd has been tasked with investigating accusations made in an article by former MP Mostafa al-Naggar published in Al-Masry Al-Youm on Monday and titled “Harassment at Al-Azhar University.”

Naggar wrote that a professor who supervises thesis-writing within the Faculty of Islamic Studies in Alexandria has asked female students to “come to his house under the pretext of reading him what they wrote in their theses, since he is blind, and has no one to do it for him.”

The professor, Naggar alleges, “takes them alone, away from the eyes of his family, in a separate office, touches their bodies and asks them things that are too outrageous to be told.”

 

Naggar claims a senior Al-Azhar female scholar who studied in the same department said she was aware of the incident and tried to take action but was given no assistance.

 

In response to the piece, Al-Azhar announced it was starting an investigation and was keen on protecting the safety and security of students.

State Security investigations of NSF ongoing

State Security investigations of NSF ongoing | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

State Security investigations will continue for leaders of the National Salvation Front (NSF). Judge Hassan Yassin, head of the prosecutor general’s Technical Office, sent a request to the Attorney General of the State Security Prosecution Hisham Al-Qarmouty to complete investigations into the involvement of NSF leaders in violence. The complaint accuses Al-Dostour Party leader Mohamed ElBaradei and former presidential candidates Amr Moussa and Hamdeen Sabahy of attempting to stage a coup to overthrow the regime.

 

The ongoing investigation has lasted six sessions, according to state-owned Al-Ahram. Lawyer Hamid Sediq claims that Moussa visited the West Bank and met with the Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs to plan unrest in Egypt in order to create instability at the expense of President Mohamed Morsi.(...)

 

The NSF has called for a number of demonstrations against President Morsi, but has not officially requested that he resign. The opposition organisation has condemned violence that took place at the presidential palace and in other parts of the country, holding the president and the Ministry of Interior responsible for harsh crackdowns.

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.

Egypt: Call for Investigation Into Post-Revolution Deaths in Egypt

Egypt: Call for Investigation Into Post-Revolution Deaths in Egypt | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Clashes during the second anniversary of the revolution which deposed Egypt's former president Hosni Mubarak have brought the number of Egyptians killed since the uprising began to at least 1,085, according to an IRIN tally of media reports, Ministry of Health figures and independent assessments by local NGOs.

As Egyptians pour into the streets once again today, to mark the second anniversary of Mubarak's departure from office on 11 February 2011, more violence is expected.

Human rights campaigner Mohamed Bahnasy told IRIN the total number of casualties could be far higher and called for a proper investigation.

"We are in dire need of a serious investigation into the violence that accompanied the revolution and the violence that followed it," Bahnasy said. "Some people were killed and buried without even identifying who they were and why they were killed."

Bahnasy was a member of a fact-finding commission formed by the government following the revolution to collect data about the number of people killed and injured during the uprising. But he said manipulation and destruction of evidence - he accuses the former State Security Agency - prevented those responsible from being held accountable and misled investigators about the real number of revolution victims as well as the people responsible.

 

"Some people were killed and buried without even identifying who they were and why they were killed.
