Two Sit-ins to Protest discontinuance of Thuggery Investigation
On Wednesday, Kifaya stages an hour-long sit-in before the Bar Association. The movement protests the General Attorney’s decision to suspend the investigation on the attacks and harassment targeted journalists and reformists. These irregularities were committed by thugs, hired by the National Democratic Party, on the day of Plebiscite on the constitutional amendment on May, 25.
Similarly, the Press Syndicate sets up two-hour sit-in on Thursday. They will demand the enquiry to be reopened.
’The journalists will not pass these mishaps by. The syndicate’s board will request the General Attorney to announce the considerations of his decision. The syndicate has provided documentary video records for thuggry activities,’ the president of the Liberties Committee of the Press Syndicate, Muhammad Abdul Quos, told Ikhwan online.
