CAIRO – 22 March 2018: The Egyptian Parliament's Human Rights Committee will prepare a report, including all the violations committed against Egyptian expatriates to submit it to the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), according to Deputy Chairman of Human Rights Committee Margaret Azer.

Azer said that the committee will hold a discussion with the European Parliament and other international forums about Mariam Moustafa, who had been assaulted in the street in Nottingham, UK, referring that the medical negligence, of which Moustafa was a victim, further points out that the assault was racially motivated.

In the same context, Parliament members expressed their anger towards the statements of Nottinghamshire Police Force, which declared that “the assault was not racially motivated.”

Azer stressed that the Parliament will not abandon Moustafa’s case and will continue to follow up the case until justice is served.

President of the Egyptian Association for the Assistance of Juveniles and Human Rights Mahmoud al-Badawi explained that Egyptian authorities will follow up the investigations as the UK is known for its misleading investigations, like what happened with the cases of Soad Hosny and Ashraf Marwan.

Egypt’s Attorney General Nabil Sadek has ordered an official copy of the death investigations of 18-year-old Egyptian student Moustafa.

A state of anger waved across the Egyptian Parliament following the murder of 18-year-old student 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.

Dalia Youssef, member of the Egyptian Parliament Foreign Relations Committee and head of Egyptian-British Parliamentary Friendship Association, affirmed that members of the association are closely following up the case.

On another note, MP Tarek al-Khouly, a member of the Parliament’s International Relations Committee, issued an urgent statement regarding Mariam’s death to the 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.
