Suez on Fire : Back to torture case

It has been sometime now when we hear about a torture case at a police station in Egypt but what you know , some habits do not just stop !!

This morning we found out the city of Suez woke up or rather did not sleep because 6 protesters including famous activist/poet Mohamed El Tamsah were tortured at Suez police station were tortured and humiliated for hours !!

The story started when two of the protesters on hunger strike fell ill and had to be transferred to the hospital. Poet El Tamsah was the first in the city to start a hunger strike and decided to accompany them along with other 5 protesters. While filing a medical report in the hospital with their cases , the protesters found a police officer insulting them badly. According to one version of the story Poet El Tamsah called the governor to report him the incident and the governor advised him to fill a complaint against that police officer. When El Tamsah and other protesters went to the police station to fill a report , they found the police officers detained , insulting and torturing them !!!!+Mail
