Resumption of investigations into Black Bloc death threats against a journalist
Public Prosecutor Talat Abdallah has appointed the Cairo Appeals Prosecution Office to open an investigation into a complaint presented by Mohamed Hameely, a journalist with “El-Mesryoun” who accuses Father Antonious Milad, deputy head of the Suez Archbishopric, and Aouny Awwad and Magdy El-Deeb, lay servants in the Mar Girgis Church, and Gamal George a journalist and producer with the 10 P.M programme and others of being responsible for anything that might happen to him. This after he received death threats on his mobile phone after he published a piece revealing their involvement together with a number of church leaders in the formation of the Black Bloc.
Hameely said in his complaint that “El-Mesryoun” published in its Wednesday February 27 2013 edition a piece entitled “With names: Black Bloc are members of the Church scouts”, “militia elements are being trained in a numbers of monasteries by a former police general and funding is coming from Copts abroad”.
He added in his complaint that he has received death and assassination threats.
A journalist a while ago was the victim of a murder attempt by unknown assailants who cut the arteries in his hands after he revealed sources of funding of “Black Bloc” terrorist elements.
