Court in Egypt refuses Interior Ministry’s call to ban mobile phones in police stations

Court in Egypt refuses Interior Ministry’s call to ban mobile phones in police stations
 
The court ordered the Ministry to comply with the order adding that it was a violation of the citizens’ rights to prevent them taking their mobiles with them into the station adding that it breached the constitution and restricted their freedom. Scandalous videos have been taken of police corruption including those engaged in drug sharing and torturing and uploaded onto the net triggering angry responses from indecent police officers.
 
The latest incident of police abuse was illustrated when police were videoed sharing drugs which unfortunately resulted in the death of the Interior Ministry’s latest victim 28 year old Khaled Saed who was beaten to death earlier this month.
