National Security Agency: No more spying on citizens

The newly established National Security Agency, which replaced the State Security Investigations Service, will not spy on citizens or serve the regime, but will protect and support Egyptian citizens, said Hamed Abdullah, head of the agency on Wednesday.

At a symposium held by the agency for human rights organizations, lawmen, media personnel, police and military officials, and representatives of the revolutionary youth coalitions, Abdullah said the police will, from now on, aim to serve the people.

Interior Minister Mansour Essawy, for his part, said the agency will not behave like the former service, which was working solely for the president and against the people.
