Mustafa Shehata to face administrative investigation

Police Lieutenant Mustafa Shehata who appeared in the notorious “slaps” video will be referred to an “administrative punitive board within the Giza Security Directorate,” reported Al-Masry Al-Youm. This means basically Shehata will sit in front of a bunch of fellow police officers to be judged for showering detainee Ahmad Gad with slaps (and who knows what else happened without being recorded).

The charges leveled against Shehata include employing “brute force” against a citizen in custody. Egyptian law does not recognize “torture” except if the abuse fiesta’s purpose was “extracting information.” The same goes for Police Captain Islam Nabih and Corporal Reda Fathi, who sexually abused driver Emad Kabeer in Bulaq al-Dakrour Police Station. They will face charges of “employing brute force” against a citizen, and not “torture.” Why? Because they inserted a stick up Emad’s ass for the sake of fun, and not for “extracting information.”

Al-Masry Al-Youm also reported that Shehata identified the detainee in the video clip, but accused him of being a child molester, and denied abusing him in anyway.

  1. This “administrative punitive board” is bullshit, this is one aspect that proves torture in Egypt is systemic for the regime not just some sporadic individual incidents. Is this procedure the same as any citizen would go through for the same crime? Course not.

    This crime has many faces that are already hidden and need to be kinda explored. Where is the victim? It is said that he had escaped to Libya, shouldn’t this initiate and independent investigation by itself? Mostafa Shehata was not the only on the torture clip, why is he the only one being investigated? What about this other young police officer that was making faces and nasty symbols with his hand? Why Mostafa was not detained as Islam was? How come Islam Nabih manages to spend his 3 months in a special detention place that is managed and supervised by the Ministry Of Internal Affairs which he belongs to? Questions, questions and questions, but no answer and most of us Egyptian citizens feel disgusted about the whole matter but more astonished that famous political writers and newspapers are not asking them. They all felt satisfied – even proud – that they could bring the officer to justice, but what justice, it does not seem matter much to them.

  2. It is very funny that after such a fuss –and it will only be a fuss, since the police in Egypt do not and will not respect the people- the interior minister ‘Habib El Adley” stated that all people who enters the police stations should enter without their mobiles …. So the solution from his prospective is to cover this acts and not to solve them … conclusion “how dare you fu….ing citizens to take such clips” instead how dare such brutal officers to do such things in us” and that says it all

  3. Message to all the egyptians tyrants, starting from the fucking Egyptian president and his Family and all the egyptian government members, I point this fucking message to all and every body in egypte that watched this event inside al haram police station and he did not reacted against this fucking regime of this fucking egyptian life without any dignitary and respect for thes poor people

  7. Insulting people by the police men in Egypt is a crazy thing and not acceptable. I am an Egyptian live outside Egypt and I really don’t feel like going back to my beloved country!!

  8. Dear AA

    There has not been a fair trial or proof that the man raped a kid, so the police officer did not have the right to slap him (and never should have)

    If you think so, then koll wa7ed ya7.od 7a2oo be dera3ooo we mal3oon aboo el kanun

    even though technically speaking that’s the case in Egypt (thanks to seyadtoo wel regime beta3oo), we should never have tolerance for it.

  9. for who’s talking about america and israel and whatever,,, oh my god people are we still hanging all our problems on america’s hanger and shoulder. what happened is really inhumaine and disastress to the extent that it created feeling of anger and violent inside of me and inside any egyptian but we shouldn’t hang our screw ups and garbage on any other thing.we need interior act not exteriour one whoever did that is an ”egyptian” officer and the one to blame is the one who gave him the right and the power to abuse and insult people

    أنا مع ضرورة الحفاظ علي آدمية الإنسان ومع ضرورة العمل علي عدم الاهانة ولكن هناك بعض الحوادث التي اعتقد انها من الممكن ان يحدث بها بعض التجاوزات … فأرجو من صانع التحقيق ان يتخيل ان يكون الطفل المعتدي عليه هو اخوه او ابنه وفجأة وجد الانسان امامه … بالله عليك الن تقتله … هناك بلاشك بعض التجاوزات من رجال الشرطة وهذه التجاوزات تتم في اكبر الدول التي تزعم انها تتعامل بحرية وماحادث الاعتداء علي السائق الزنجي في امريكا عن الاذهان ببعيد … فبصراحة انا في البداية تعاطفت مع المضروب عندما شاهدت الظابط يضربة ولكن عندما علمت الجريمة المتهم فيها تمنيت ان اكون مكان هذا الضابط لأقوم بنفسي واضربه واسال السادة الباكين علي حقوق الانسان في هذا الكليب … ماعقوبة هذا الحيوان في الشريعة الاسلامية
    حكموا ضمائركم وأقسم بالله لايوجد لي قريب او صديق ضابط ولكنها الامانه الانسانية
