A Message From an Egyptian Citizen to President Obama

*****************************************************

Dear Mr. President OBAMA


Since its inception, the Muslim Brotherhood organization (MB), which continues to be enlisted by many countries as a terrorist organization, has mastered the art of recruiting young people and pushing them to hold prominent positions in different countries of the world including Arab & western countries. The purpose of recruiting these “dormant cells” is to carry on terrorist plots, and in so doing, to deceive the world through lies, prevarication, and dissimulation, so as not to reveal their secret relationship with the terrorist organization of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Having attempted to recruit Nasser and Sadat in the earlier days to push them to the presidency and gain control through them, the MB were disappointed to see that neither one granted them control over Egypt. Consequently, the MB made several attempts to kill Nasser. Such attempts were rendered a failure; however, they succeeded to kill Sadat on Oct. 6, 1981 through their (Jamaat Islamyia) branch. In recent years, the MB recruited Chancellor Hatem Bjato, Secretary General of the Supreme Committee for the Egyptian presidential election in 2012, as one of their “dormant cells”, and has used his cooperation to counterfeit the presidential elections and declare Morsi a winner. 

For many years, the MB have pumped in billions of dollars to create a system of "Islamist Lobbying" in the US by recruiting individuals such as senior officials, journalists, and former public affairs specialists who are known to influence and shape public opinion. The role of this radicalized ‘Lobby’ was to penetrate the white house and utilize US policies to serve their plan of mastering the world and destroying modern civilization.

Mr. President, it is very clear that you appointed Egyptian and Arabian individuals known to be loyal to the MB, placing them in critical advisory positions in the White House. This is a cause for concern especially since you know fairly well that the MB is the leader of all terrorist organizations in the world, including Al-Qaeda who launched the 9/11 attack on America, Jamaat Islamyia, Al-Jihad, and plenty others. This mixed logic leads us to wonder whether you yourself were a recruit, pushed by the MB to reach the most prominent positions in America, and to ultimately become President of the US, the most powerful nation in the world.

Egyptians, alongside the rest of the world, have closely watched in bewilderment how you unconditionally supported the MB until you brought them to the pinnacle of ruling Egypt, how you ignored their fascism as they monopolized the constitution in an attempt to pull the country back to the Middle Ages, how you ignored their crimes and killing many hundreds of egyptians in many Massacres ,and how you employed the full might of the United States to back them up and to cover up for their crimes against humanity; not only by standing silent over the past 2.5 years, but most remarkably by demanding that the Egyptian authorities release them now that they have been ousted and held for investigation.

Like the rest of the world, Egyptians have always viewed the US as the beacon of freedom, democracy & human rights. What you have done over the past year, with the aid of Ms. Patterson, who is seen by Egyptians as the representative of the MB in Washington, was to tarnish this image, to the point that most of the world now views the US as the official sponsor of the terrorist MB organization whose members would stop at nothing, not even cannibalism (as seen on TV), to execute their devilish plan of destroying our nations.

On Sept 8, 2006, I had filed a lawsuit (claim #11906), supported by records, to the Egyptian Prosecutor General’s office, accusing Mr. Mahdi Akef (the then Supreme Guide of the MB organization) and his organization of launching different terrorist organizations in various parts of the world including Egypt and the US, with the ultimate objective of dominating the world and establishing the Islamic caliphate under the leadership of the Egyptian mother branch. This accusation was validated once the MB came to power given that the first thing they did was to release 1000’s of terrorists, some sentence to the capital punishment or life in person for their role in killing thousands of innocent people in terrorist attacks around the world. Under Morsi’s reign, these criminals were not only set free, but were further glorified by being made into political party leaders and Members of the Egyptian Parliament and the Shura Council. It is unfortunate that if anyone gets the credit for bringing this long lived dream of an Islamic caliphate close to reality, it would be you personally Mr. President.

On the memorable day of June 30th, 2013, Egyptians made history when they rallied side by side to destroy this devilish plan. 33 million Egyptians took to the streets on a hot sizzling summer day of Temperature exceeds 40 ° C in the largest demonstration in the history of the human race , after the 22 million signature petition for early presidential elections went unheard, asking to topple the regime; however, you Mr. President, and your powerful PR machine, had the nerve to call it “a military coup” attempting to cast a dark shadow on a great revolution that should otherwise be glorified.

Mr. Obama … when history books are written, the Egyptian revolution will become a story to be told; a story about people who stood unarmed against a terrorist regime and still managed to overcome it. Please, do not make those books tell the story of an America who chose to support terrorism. Please, choose to be on the right side of history.

The Muslim Brotherhood banned…again

Injy Samy
25 Sep 2013 6:35 pm
The Cairo Court for Urgent Matters last Monday ruled to disband the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) Association and ordered the confiscation of its capital and assets. The Cairo Court for Urgent Matters last Monday ruled to disband the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) Association and ordered the confiscation of its capital and assets. 
The court ordered the “banning of the activities of the MB in Egypt and all activities emanating from it, the Association and any other institution branched from it, belonging to it or receiving financial support or any kind of support from it.” It also ordered the interim government to seize the Brotherhood’s funds and form a panel to administer its frozen assets until any appeal had been heard.
The court ruling was prompted by a lawsuit filed by the leftist National Progressive Unionist Party, commonly known as Tagammu, which accused the Brotherhood of being “terrorist” and “exploiting religion in political slogans”.
It is not clear what the verdict means for the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the political arm of the MB.
Terrorist history
The Brotherhood was founded as a religious, anti-Western organisation in 1928. It grew to assume a political role, engaging in terrorist operations and a series of political assassinations during the 1940s. The MB supported the 1952 Revolution that ended the monarchy and British colonial influence in Egypt, but was outlawed in 1954, following an attempt on the life of President Gamal Abdel-Nasser who would not allow them an active political role. The group leaders and members were imprisoned.
In the 1970s, Egypt’s President Anwar al-Sadat, in an attempt to counter his leftist opponents, pardoned the MB leaders and allowed them freedom to operate. But they went back to their coercive, terrorist practices, and assassinated Sadat in 1981 for having made peace with Israel.
The group was gradually allowed a degree of freedom to operate under President Hosni Mubarak on condition that it renounced violence. Although never formally legalised till 2012, its members established a significant bloc in parliament in elections in 2005 by standing as independents. It finally emerged from the shadows after the 2011 revolution. It won a majority in Parliament and, in June 2012, one of the members of its Guidance Office, Muhammad Mursi, became Egypt’s president. After one year in office he was overthrown by massive public protest and military intervention, for having curtailed freedoms and imposed an Islamist hegemony.

Going underground
Commenting on the ruling, a number of political figures have demanded that the government should officially declare the MB a terrorist association, and ban any demonstrations under the slogans of the MB. 
But Mohamed al-Mohandis, former spokesman of the Islamist-leaning Strong Egypt party, said that the court should have declared the legal reasoning behind its ruling, and should have cited the evidence of MB involvement in all the violent deeds witnessed in Egypt throughout the Mursi time as president.  “But the ruling,” he believes, “will not make any difference to the MB. They are used to go underground.” 
The Islamist intellectual, Nageh Ibrahim, says that calls for disbanding Islamist parties are nothing but impatience with the opposition on the part of the current government. Islamist TV channels and newspaper have been banned, and there is a tendency towards a blackout of opposition. This finally threatens the Egyptian State. 
“What if we have parties with religious basis?” Mr Ibrahim says. “Pluralism is the essence of political life, and the exclusion of religious parties is in the first place an exclusion of the concept of democracy.”  
Religious-based political party
Islam al-Katatni, founder of the movement of “We Love This Country” and a former MB member, told Watani that disbanding the MB political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), at this timing comes against the principle of “No exclusion” which the various political forces have called for. “In all cases,” Mr Katatni says, “the new Constitution should put an end to this predicament when it decides whether or not political parties may be founded on religious basis or reference.” 
If the religious parties are disbanded at this point in time, Mr Katatni says, without constitutional backing, “we would be in for more violence by the MB and other Islamic parties who would mobilise their supporters in order to pressure the State to approve their demands.”
Mr Katatni believes that, if the MB really wishes to move on with a political future, they should separate their political activity from their time-honoured preaching and social service role. 
Maged Hanna, a lawyer, told Watani that disbanding the MB would work to create public sympathy for it. “The State should be careful not to take any abusive procedures against the MB,” Mr Hanna says, “but at the same time, should they ever make a move that wrongs Egypt or Egyptians, they should be penalised. 
“The constitution which is being now written should be very clear about religious-based political parties. There should be no confusion or ambiguity there.”

Rejected by mainstream

“I do not think that the current government has the spine to properly confront the MB,” Seti Shenouda, a researcher of political Islam, told Watani. “It is too feeble and hesitant, not strong enough to tighten its control on the MB and Islamist militants, meaning that the recent court ruling will not have a tangible effect on the ground. 
The MB will probably continue to operate, albeit banned” he says.  

General Ali Zein al-Abedein, professor of criminal law at the Police academy, said that, contrary to law of the civil associations, the MB operated in politics, imposing its opinion, and undermining the basic principles of Egyptian society. “The outcome is that the MB has now lost its once extensive popular base and is rejected by the mainstream Egyptian community,” he says.

USA Collaboration with Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization

  USA Collaboration with  Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization

**********************************************

Delivered Nov. 18, 2011


Mr. President Barak Hussein Obama


                     Millions of Egyptians are very disturbed by the recent news of secretive communications between the United States and the militant  Muslim Brotherhood (MB) Organization aiming to help MB’s conspiracy to rule Egypt.

                     On June 30, 2011 US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton disclosed the existence of such talks (the French News Agency; same date). MB spokesman Mr. Mahmoud Ghozlan immediately issued a confirmation welcoming the talks and acknowledging they had been going on for years. During that period the MB had categorically and repeatedly denied any deliberations with the US.

                     US Department of State spokesman Mr. Mark Toner announced on July 1, 2011 that his government would continue the secret dialogue with the MB. It had started in 2006.

                     Debka Intelligance Site reported on April 15, 2011 that President Obama had made a secret agreement with the MB to help it take over the governments of Egypt and other Arab countries as well.

                     American journalist Jeffrey T. Connor wrote in a Washington Post article on Oct. 26, 2011, that President Obama’s claim to convert the Middle East into a more liberal, democratic region was proven false by the Islamists’ recent control of the Tunisian government, and their highly expected rise to govern Libya, Egypt and Yemen.
The writer accused Obama of assisting armed Jihadists advance to seize power. Islamic radicals, said Mr. Connor, used the massive resistance against dictatorship regimes as a Troy’s Horse to expand the influence of their armed gangs.    
                   
                     Mr. Conner accused President Obama also of strengthening Islamic extremists in the Arab world, thus contributing to the downfall of USA and to the growing aggression of terrorists, most of whom were killing Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some were high level operatives of Al Qaeda. He predicted that the MB would win a large number of parliament seats in the then-upcoming elections in Egypt. The MB wants to bring back the Caliphate rule and make Cairo the center of a hard line Islamic authoritarianism. MB’s foreign policy is based on hating Israel and the United States. Since the ouster of former Egyptian President Mubarak, Mr. Connor continued, fanatic Muslims had killed a score of Christian Copts and torched several of their churches. The MB considers the remaining 8 million Copts a threat. Therefore Egypt could be now on the verge of a sectarian war. Yet President Obama still ignores the persecution of the Copts.

                     In conclusion, Mr. Connor says, “The American administration today is acting like the emperors of Rome who failed to see the Barbarian’s danger until it was too late. President Obama’s job now is managing the descend of America. His welcoming of the Arab Spring is merely a camouflage for the bitter reality: The Islamists are coming; they are threatening freedom everywhere.” (The Egyptian daily Al-Wafd  , Oct. 29, 2011 and other news agencies.)

                     The Washington Times editorial of July 1, 2011 criticized the Secretary of State’s announcement about the continuing talks with the MB as a “step doomed to collapse at the end,” and described the White House as “the blind who can no longer see the separatist message being spread in the Middle East.” “Mr. Obama,” according to the newspaper, “says that he wants to improve the relations with Islam and Muslims. However, he supports policies that damage Islamic ethics. His dialogue with the MB and hard line factions will definitely fail. It is better for the United States to talk with the secular groups because they are educated and unbiased; they can bring peace and progress to the Middle East…” The Washington Times faulted US pampering of Islamists saying “The White House would at the end destroy America’s national interests… Islamic powers will never stand by USA.”

                     On July 2, 2011, Egyptian newspaper Al-Masri Al-yum quoted the Washington Post in saying that the dialogue between the US and the MB had increased after the Egyptian uprise last January. Later in June, Congresswoman Ileana Roth, the chairperson of the Foreign Affairs Committee, emphasized that the MB was following a strategy of violence and terror.

                     Peculiarly, Mr. Obama’s partner, the MB, remains to this date on Russia’s list of world terrorists.

                     I submitted an official complaint to the Egyptian General Prosecutor on Aug. 9, 2006 (document number 11906, same date) accusing the MB and some government ministers of committing terror acts in Egypt and abroad. So far nothing was investigated and no action was taken to protect potential victims. The crimes of the MB and its associates against thousands of innocent victims of all faiths in Egypt and abroad were totally neglected as if they never happened. On the contrary, I received threats of murder and attempts to charge me of fabricated crimes.

                     Strangely enough, countless governments, intelligence agencies, researchers and scholars know quite well that Al Qaeda, the most infamous military wing of the MB, was established by MB leaders, notably Kamal Al-Sananiry and Abdallah Azzam, with all kinds of support from the Saudi Kingdom. It is also known that Mohamed Al-Zawahry, the current head of Al Qaeda after Osama Bin Laden, is a member of the MB. He and tens of thousands of Egyptian youth were drafted and dispatched to Afghanistan to fight with Al Qaeda, explode suicide bombs and murder innocent citizens in dozens of countries. The MB aspires to put the world ultimately under an Islamic Caliphate ruling, the same Sharia iron fist with which Arabs controlled the Middle East and numerous regions in Europe, Africa and Asia for centuries. The scheme seems to be imminently materializing after President Obama came to the top of the greatest power and collaborated with Saudi Arabia to push the MB up to seize power in Egypt.

                     The radical MB uses “Al-Teqeyya”, a principle they relate to Islam that approves  lying, deception and slyness, to fool Egyptians and the world in believing that the MB has dismantled its militias and abandoned violence altogether. Now, the MB says it advocates freedom and human rights, and is adhering to democracy in their quest to govern Egypt. This is propaganda; a bunch of outright lies. Former President Sadat declared in his address to the Egyptian People’s Assembly on Sept.14, 1981 – 3 weeks prior to his assassination by militant Muslims – that the MB Special Force still was still active despite the MB’s many denials. Furthermore, he specified the Jihad and Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiyya (the Islamic Coalition) as MB militias. (Egyptian newspaper Al-Akhbar ,Sept. 15, 1981)              

                     Later it was revealed that the terrorist “Military Tech Academy” clan, which attempted the 1974 coup against Sadat, belonged to the MB Talal Al-Ansary, the second convict in the clan’s trial, said after his release from prison that, prior to the coup attempt, its members swore the oath of martyrdom before the MB then-Grand Imam Hasan Al-Hodeiby.

                     A subsequent Grand Imam, Sheikh Mohamed Mahdi Akef, promised on Aug. 3, 2006 to send 10,000 highly trained and equipped fighters to join Hezb Allah (the Party of God) during the Israeli invasion of Southern Lebanon. (The French News Agency, Aug. 3, 2006, Reuter, Egyptian newspapers)

                     On Dec. 11, 2006, the MB publicly paraded its militants, faces masked, At Al-Azhar University, Cairo, in full view of governmental security forces and Egyptian and foreign TV cameras.

                     The recent cooperation and allocation of power seats between the MB, Jihad, Islamic Coalition, and the Salafi (ultra-fundamentalist) Movement are further proof to the aforementioned facts.

                     The MB Mufti (highest authority of Sharia), Sheikh Mohamed Abdallah Al-Khatib, issued a Fatwa (religious decree) mandating the destruction of churches inside and outside of Egypt as every Muslim’s duty. That is exactly what the MB had been largely doing in Egypt for more than 40 years. I had submitted an earlier official complaint to the Egyptian General Prosecutor (document number 1754, dated Feb, 8, 2006) to investigate and cancel the decree, which caused the torching of several Coptic churches, as an outright unconstitutional violation of human rights and religious freedom. No investigation was ever conducted. The Sheikh and the MB were never punished.

                     The above atrocities, in addition to court hearings and confessions of MB bosses and recruits, prove beyond doubt – except for those who want to obliterate the truth – that the MB is still deploying its various military wings, especially Al Qaeda, to execute the MB agenda of terrorizing and ultimately controlling the world.

                     Many political and media circles in Egypt believe that Mrs. Dalia Megahed, President Obama’s Egyptian advisor, a member of the MB, coordinates his
collaboration with the terror group.

                     Exposing its real feeling toward the US and with whomever the MB pretends to ally, its current Grand Imam Mohamed Badie launched an attack on American and Western
Civilizations in Egyptian newspapers including Al-Yum Al-Sabee of  Spt.16, 2011. He wished the “infidel” West to fail. In one of his weekly messages titled “The Lie of Islamic Terrorism”, Badie assailed the US and assured that its failure had begun and that it will eventually be demolished like the Aad people (non-Muslims destroyed by God according to the Quran). He predicted the Western civilization collapse to happen as fast as that of the recently deposed Arab dictators, and justified the 9/11 and world-wide Islamic attacks as a result of American oppression of other nations and its poor support of Palestinian rights..!!

                     So, if that were the case, why then did Muslim terrorists kill hundreds of thousands of peaceful Muslims and Christians in Islam-dominated Egypt, Algiers, Somalia, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Indonesia? Why did the MB-linked Sudanese rulers commit a horrific genocide in Darfur: wipe out whole villages, slaughter 400,000 people -including Muslims- and rape their women and children? What incentive pushed the Hamas government in Ghaza, another wing of the MB, to torture, kill and mutilate the bodies of thousands of MuslimPalestinians after Hamas turned against the legitimate Palestinian Authority in 2007? Is it really believable that the MB militias committed those atrocities in almost all Islamic nations just because of the abysmal US policies against Arabs and Muslims and its failure to support the Palestinian cause..?!

                     Mr. President,

                     No man can partner with the devils, snakes or scorpions; they will kill him regardless of any benefits they obtained or agreements they made. It is their culture and immoral nature. This is exactly how the MB retaliated against every ally from King Farouk to Nasser, even with the “Muslim President” Sadat. Sadat released MB prisoners and enabled them to infiltrate and control the most vital aspects of Egyptian life: the army, police, intelligence, judiciary, education, media, labor and professional unions, down to sports clubs. Other political and religious entities were collectively excluded. Nevertheless, Sadat was assassinated by none other than an MB wing on October 6, 1981 – in public, in front of local and foreign TV cameras!

                     The same betrayal was repeated later by another MB creation, Al Qaeda, in Afghanistan. The infamous group pledged cooperation with the US in the war against Russian invasion. Upon the defeat of USSR, Al Qaeda reneged and fought the US Coalition forces with the weapons and experience previously obtained from the US, and then started a relentless war campaign of terror in America, Europe and other continents to expand Islamic influence in the world.

                     According to the US government, Al Qaeda terrorists who piloted the 9/11 attack planes were trained for two months on flight simulators at American aviation institutes. Fact is, one may need more than that time to practice on a real automobile, let alone a simulator, before actually driving it on the road. So how could the terrorist pilots fly huge planes, with the precision recognized by prominent experts, after merely two months of simulator only training - no real airplanes involved? An inevitable question comes to mind: Were the pilots trained thoroughly and comprehensibly for longer periods in Arabic country , then came to the States and joined American flight institutes to divert attention away from the country that provided the serious training? Which country  did that? Did the US administration and the CIA identify the culprit 
?then decided not to divulge the provocative information 

Mr. President: Why were numerous pages of the 9/11 
Fact Finding Committee report blacked out from the American people? What role did Saudi Arabia and the other MB Arab cronies play in the heinous 9/11 terror..!!???

                     Saudi Arabia and other oil-rich countries spend billions of dollars every year to penetrate the American and European societies in order to spread Islam, develop home-grown terrorists and create an Islamic lobby of influential media and congress members that can silence criticism and even defend Islamic terror crimes and Islamic oppression of Arab peoples. Saudi Arabia in particular spends lavishly in U.S presidential and congress elections to promote sympathizers.

                     Mr. President Barak Hussein Obama,

                     We strongly deplore the alliance of your administration with the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood (MB) Organization  and your support of its manipulative scheme to rob the Egyptian regime, probably the Syrian one too, as did happen in Tunisia and Libya.

                      We request Your Honor, the US government and honest Americans to stop cooperating with the MB. They direct and finance global terrorism. They are the murderers of Americans, Egyptians, etc. They burned Coptic churches, houses and businesses. They plan to ignite a civil war between Muslim and Coptic sects in Egypt. They conspire to impose the primitive, inhumane Sharia tyranny on Egypt now, and spread it later to more regions.

                     Please accept our deep appreciation to you and the American people.

Systematic persecution of Christian Copts in Egypt by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi

 ===============================================

NEW YORK (July 3, 2015)— By Joop Koopman 

For Egypt’s Christians full civil rights elusive: two incidents

For Egypt’s Christians full civil rights elusive: two incidents



NEW YORK (July 3, 2015)— By Joop Koopman

  
Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has made significant gestures that signal a commitment to the interests of the country’s Christian minority. His efforts appear sincere, but at the grassroots level the country’s Copts continue to suffer discrimination, harassment and violence at the hands of Muslims—with local authorities regularly turning a blind eye on abuses.

Two incidents that took place in last month—reported by MidEast Christian News (MCN)—offer fresh evidence:
In the early morning of June 24, 2015, 17 year-old Coptic teenager Mariam Youssef was abducted by four young men right in front of her house where she lives with her widowed father, Maher Youssef, in the village of Beni Suef, in Upper Egypt. Soon afterward, the distraught elder Youssef was informed by several Muslim men of the abductors’ identity. One of the men turned out to be a neighbor, the other three having criminal records.

Still, Mr. Youssef could not bring local police to let him file a complaint to formally open an investigation. Authorities instead sought to blame the matter on the girl’s upset state of mind, because she had quarreled with her father the night before her disappearance. Police did question the families of the suspects, but they denied all knowledge and were not pressed to prevail upon their relatives to release Mariam.

MCN reporter Erin Moussa, who interviewed Mr. Youssef, reported that such intransigence on the part of police is quite common in the case of kidnappings that have the aim of forcing young women to convert to Islam—and that such cases are numerous. One of Mariam’s relatives commented: “Our village has only 10 Coptic families and all of them are simple people. There is no church and Copts don’t stir up any trouble that would prompt someone to kidnap the girl.”

Then, more ominously, there was the mysterious death—sometime during the week of June 22, 2015—of Coptic army conscript Bahaa Gamal Mikhail, a 24 year-old from the village of Rizqa, near the city of Assiut. His family—informed by military authorities to collect his body from a Cairo morgue—indirectly learned of the official account that the young man, who was the only Christian in his battalion, had supposedly committed suicide by shooting himself in the heart.
The family, upon inspecting the body, found traces of two bullets and an injury to this forehead. The morgue handed over the body in what MCN reported was “suspicious haste.”

Mikhail’s parish priest, Father Youannis Saad rejected rumors—which he claimed had been spread by the battalion—that the conscript was depressed. His mother, too, confirmed that he had been in good spirits; he also was considering joining a monastery. Just before his death, Mikhail played music in front of the battalion commander. Father Saad spoked of his strong suspicion that Mikhail was murdered.
A similar case was reported in August of 2013, involving the alleged suicide of another Coptic recruit, Abu al-Khair Atta. Apparently, shortly before his death, a fellow soldier had invited him to embrace Islam. Military officials refused to perform an autopsy.

Exclusive: Minya Coptic girl's exam papers forged to give her failing grade


26 JULY 2015

Minya (Egypt), July 26/MCN/
The exams of Mariam Malak Zakry Tadros, 16, an "excellent student" who ranked first in her class last year were forged for her secondary stage exams, her brother Dr. Bassem told MCN.

Mariam is a student at the Saft Al-Khomar secondary school at Minya, and her family were surprised by a grade of zero.
“When we filed a complaint to Assuit school control and reviewed her examination papers on 23/7/2015, we found that all her examination papers were changed. The only paper that has not been changed is the first paper that includes her name and seat number only, but all other papers were changed,” Bassem told MCN.

He added that they filed a report against the school control at a police station under No. 3921 of 2015, administrative court, Assuit II Police station concerning forgery and the public prosecution has been notified of the incident.
