He added that arresting Coptic activists, who had been injured during the aggression that targeted the Copts in the cathedral, reflect the discrimination exercised against Copts by the ruling regime.
Speaking to MCN, Gamal noted that the authorities have not arrested those people who attacked the cathedral, although the cameras monitored a large number of them carrying firearms to attack the people in the cathedral.
“According to the Penal Code, the arrest of any citizen cannot be conducted without providing the serious evidences.”
He denounced the arrest of the Coptic activists, saying that such actions reflects the current security problems and the absence of the rule of law.
He added that it violates the International Agreement of the Civil and Political Rights, as it ignored the humanitarian conditions related to the health conditions of those activists.
Gamal noted that both the Interior Ministry and the presidency committed a violation through arresting the Coptic activists who were injured during the aggression that targeted the cathedral. He added such institutions could be punished for such discrimination between the citizens.
Egyptian security forces arrested a number of Coptic activists on Friday against the backdrop of the attacks committed against the cathedral on Sunday in Cairo’s St. Mark Cathedral after the funeral of the victims of Khosos.
