CAIRO – 3 March 2018: Egypt’s Attorney General Nabil Sadek launched an investigation into the assault against an Egyptian citizen in the UK, according to a statement from the General Prosecution’s office on Saturday.

Egyptian Mariam Moustafa Abdel Salam, an engineering student based in Nottingham, UK,

was brutally beaten

by ten British women of African descent a few days ago. None of them have been arrested yet.

Sadek ordered the International Cooperation Administration of the Public Prosecution to send a letter to the British authorities, asking to be updated on UK inquires about the attack and Abdel Salam’s medical report.

In a statement issued Friday, Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesperson Ahmed Abu Zeid said that they are following all of the case’s updates with her family and that they demanded the British authorities to take more serious steps in investigating the abusers, especially that they were captured by the CCTV cameras from the streets and bus where the incident took place.

The statement also accused the hospital were Adel Salam was taken with “negligence”, as they gave her first aid treatment and checked her out while she needed more care; accordingly, she fell into coma shortly later. The ministry also hired Moustafa’s family a lawyer to follow the case’s legal updates, according to the statement.
