Egyptian army dismisses detained politician's son from service

The Egyptian army has dismissed the son of detained head of Al-Wasat Party, Abul Ela Madi, for security reasons.

Ahmed Abul Ela wrote on his Facebook wall that, “the leader of the bloody coup General Abdul-Fatah al-Sisi has approved the dismissal of my brother, Hamza, from the great Egyptian army, for security reasons.”

He added, “My brother still has eight more months to serve in the army.”

The news came after interior minister, Mohamed Ibrahim, had said in a press conference that his ministry was investigating 70 applications for police college students. He pledged to send all of them away after the end of the investigation.

Observers and analysts say that such practices reveal the true face of the police, led by the regime of the deposed Hosni Mubarak, who had worked to undermine Morsi’s reformation of the country and then carried out the coup against him.
