EIPR calls for a serious and transparent investigation

On February 12, the general assembly of the Egyptian Medical Syndicate and the Cairo syndicate is scheduled to meet under the slogan “The Protection, Dignity, and Security of Doctors.” The meeting was called for after weeks of intimidation and a smear campaign against the Matariya hospital doctors for insisting on their right to hold Matariya policemen accountable for their assault and unlawful detention of two doctors at the hospital on January 28.
