CAIRO – 17 March 2018: A state of anger waved across the Egyptian Parliament following the murder of 18-year-old student Mariam Moustafa.
In late February, Moustafa, an engineering student based in Nottingham, UK, was brutally beaten by 10 British women of African descent.
Parliament members and committees adopted a number of urgent procedures to get a proper closure on this case and ensure justice is served towards the attackers.
Dalia Youssef, member of the Egyptian Parliament Foreign Relations Committee and head Egyptian-British Parliamentary Friendship Association, announced the association is following through the case.
Youssef also affirmed that members of the association are closely following up the case until justice is being served.
On another note, MP Tarek al-Khouly, a member of parliament’s International Relations Committee, issued an urgent statement regarding Mariam’s death to ministries of interior and justice.
Khouly demanded that the British authorities provide a copy of all the investigations, as well as all the procedures that were taken.
For his part, parliamentarian Alaa Abed, head of the Human Rights Committee in parliament, announced that the committee will be sending an envoy to follow-up developments on the death investigations.
The committee will travel in a couple of days and will be in contact with the British investigation authorities, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, the Egyptian ambassador in Britain Nasser Kamel, and the British House of Commons.
Member Ismail Nasr ad-Din also demanded the foreign ministry to open an urgent investigation into the incident until justice is served. He also demanded to summon the British ambassador to Cairo to inform him on how Egyptians are infuriated.
