#AceNewsReport – June.07: In October 2019 teenager Mahmoud Al-Banna intervened after the three men were sexually harassing and beating a high school student in the street in Tala city, Monoufiya: He later posted on Facebook: “It’s not manly to beat a girl in the street.”
Court Report: #MartyrOfChivalry Judge upholds ruling against three young men convicted last year of ‘ fatal stabbing ‘ of teenager who intervened to prevent female student ‘ harassment & sexual assault ‘ in the street: MEM.Com/
Investigations found that Al-Rabie sent Al-Banna threatening messages demanding he stop talking about what had happened: In retaliation the three young men ambushed Al-Banna, sprayed pepper spray in his eyes and stabbed him three times in the face and the thigh…………….The ringleader was Mohamed Al-Rabie who was aided by his two friends Eslam Awad and Mostafa Mohamed: Al-Banna died in hospital and became known as “the martyr of chivalry”. His death generated a wave of sympathy and demands for the government to tackle sexual harassment, which is widespread in Egypt………..For his funeral, thousands walked through the streets.
‘ The defendants were arrested and charged with premeditated murder, and another defendant who helped them flee the crime received five years in prison ‘
In Egypt, victims are often punished for speaking out about sexual harassment whilst perpetrators walk free: After the murder, security forces announced that El-Banna was killed following an argument with some friends in a café, but CCTV videos that were leaked showed El-Banna being chased through the streets by the three defendants:
At the time, Egypt’s Interior Ministry arrested 22 people for allegedly inciting against others after they protested in front of the court room in Shebin El-Koum where the defendants were being tried: The government labelled the protesters as terrorists who belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood and accused them of using the murder to incite against the state.
