Giza’s governor said he filed a complaint against university graduates accused of intercepting his convoy and preventing him from attending a scheduled meeting with Bishop Pachomius, the acting pope of the Coptic Orthodox Church.
Ali Abdel Rahman said he “assigned the governorate executive authority to file a complaint against outlaws who use the revolution as a pretext for bullying and breaking the law.”
He said authorities detained the graduates for 15 days pending investigations.
“Anyone who approaches the headquarters of the governorate, does not respect the law or blocks the road will be dealt with according to the law,” Abdel Rahman said.
The governor said he would file complaints against anyone who attempts to attack or insult him or to attack the governorate headquarters, even if the assault is verbal.
He called on people who have complaints to resort to legal means instead of blocking roads and stalling work. He praised the Giza Security Directorate for cooperating with and protecting the governorate headquarters, and voiced support for President Mohamed Morsy’s decision to criminalize blocking roads.
