Committee concludes report on ‘thuggery’ during revolution

The fact-finding committee formed to investigate acts of "thuggery" against demonstrators during the 25 January revolution submitted its final report to the attorney general on Sunday. The findings will be announced at a press conference on Tuesday.

The committee submitted a 400-page report on various acts of violence, including shootings, committed on 2 February.

The attorney general used information presented in the report to support his decision to charge members of the former ruling National Democratic Party with inciting violence. Those charged on the basis of that information include Alaa and Gamal Mubarak, sons of deposed President Hosni Mubarak, former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly, and former Shura Council speaker Safwat al-Sherif.

The report also implicates former Minister of Manpower Aisha Abdel Hady, as well as famous businessman Ibrahim Kamel and lawyer Mortada Mansour. It also discloses the names of police officers who deliberately opened prisons after the revolution, allowing criminals to escape and create chaos.

The committee has prepared a 45-page synopsis of the report for distribution during the upcoming press conference.
