A report has been handed in to Prosecution by defense lawyers of 11 MB minors who were students in the faculty of Engineering being held in the Menouf police jails.  The lawyers gathered extensive information on the behavior toward the innocent students who were illegally detained, and on violence and sexual humiliation and abuse of them on the part of police and their agents

 

 Serious flaws were exposed in every aspect of the manner in which the Police handled the detention and interrogation of the MB students who were not even leveled with security offenses. The conditions in the police station were bad as Police officer Ahmed Alsayad lined the detainees and began beating them in different parts of their body with the steal handcuffs. Violence was reported as the students who were interrogated for more than 24 hours were not only beaten physically but were harmed morally with the humiliating actions by interrogators and police. Herein laying another flaw in the system; violations of human rights

 

 It appears that the use of violence was not restricted to interrogations; violent treatment had become the norm during the security forces raids on the students who were arrested from campus. Although senior police officials allege they reject the use of violent means of interrogation, on members of the MB such methods are widely employed

 

In a statement to "Ikhwanweb" defense lawyer Tarek Ragab asserted that they relied on testimonies given by his defendants who asserted that they could identify 5 of the violating police officers and his assistants who knew no mercy while beating the detainees and causing them injury. He ascertained that an appeal had been filed calling for the immediate investigation of the officer and his gang of perpetrators. However he stated that "As yet no action has been taken despite the presenting of essential complaints garnered from the beaten detainees, and this sadly has come to be the norm
