Egypt continues investigation of social activist
Egypt, Politics, 7/8/2000
Egyptian Foreign Minister Amr Moussa stated that there is no U.S pressure on Egypt concerning the case of Saad El-Din Ibrahim, the director of Ibn Khaldoun center for the human rights studies, with whom the Egyptian State security prosecution is interrogating currently.
Saad El-Din Ibrahim holds US and Egyptian citizenship and is accused of attempting to defame Egypt by working on projects supported by sources outside Egypt.
The Egyptian State security prosecution is pressing charges, which are forgery, abusing the country's reputation, thousands of forged electoral cards and financial violations.
Cairo court of appeal issued a decision to the banks to reveal the accounts of the Ibn Khaldoun center and the suspects in the case.
These actions by the government are being viewed by Egyptians with mixed emotions.
