The Curse of the Fourth Floor

by , under Blog

Fellow activists and citizens, Please avoid residing or visiting friends who live on the fourth floor…

A court sentenced two Giza police corporals to only five years in prison for killing a plumber in Omraniya by throwing him off the fourth floor.

And in Damanhour, State Security police threw Muslim Brotherhood activist Fares Barakat off the fourth floor for daring to ask whether the police had a search warrant to storm his house.

And let’s not forget Maadi resident Shereen Ghareeb who also flew from his fourth floor balcony, with a little help from officer Shehab el-Sha’er. The latter got away with murder because he is the nephew of the Cairo Security Director General Ismail el-Sha’er.

Thank God I live on the ground floor.
