Egypt's Prime Minister, Hisham Kandil, said on Monday that the presidency will take legal actions against a newspaper that published a news story stating that the police fired indiscriminately at protesters.
Kandil said in a ministerial meeting aired on national television that "the state does not order the killing of protesters, the state does not marry off girls at the age of nine ... This is untrue."
"In order to achieve the objectives of the revolution, we must overcome the phase of slogans and protests. We must immediately begin the phase of hard work and productivity," the prime minister said, pointing that the process of democracy will take its course.
He stated that the majority of society does not understand or respect the minority, and vice versa explaining that this has a negative impact on everyone.
Kandil called on all political forces and parties to prioritize public interest.
The people must support the police and individual errors should not condemn them all, he added.
