The Presidency condemned the recent Ittihadiya incident of policemen dragging a protester in a way inconsistent with dignity and human rights. It renewed its condemnation in a statement on Sunday 3/2/2013 confirming keenness of all State institutions to apply articles of the Egyptian constitution banning torture or terrifying or harming any human whether physically or morally.
The presidency also rejected utilizing this incident to justify attacks on State institutions and violent practices. It also confirmed that it is following up the investigations and it will declare the results to the public.
Meanwhile, Hamada Saber, the Ittihadiya incident victim, backtracked on his previous statements in which he accused protesters of attacking him while acquitting the security forces from the incident.
The prosecution ordered moving the citizen from the Police Hospital to another governmental hospital.
