Sunday… veiled victim’s Family at press conference with reporters
The Freedom Rights Committee of the Press Syndicate will convene with the family of the veiled martyr Dr Marwa Sherbini at 7 o”clock Sunday evening, in an open dialogue with reporters on the latest developments in the case.
Many of society”s leading figures, human rights organizations and national political powers of different movements will attend the conference.
The details of this tragic incident started a year ago following a disagreement between the 32 year old victim, Marwa and the German defendant at a children”s playground. She asked the 28-year-old defendant whose name is Alex to leave the swing to her son. The accused, however; insulted her and accused her of being a terrorist because she was wearing the headscarf.
Being proud of her religion, Marwa who is Egyptian sued the young man taking him to court, which resulted in the fining of the young man with the amount of €750. This immensely provoked him where, he filed for an appeal. During Marwa”s testimony in court, the man violently attacked her by taking his knife and stabbing her which resulted in her death.
