The family of 39-year-old Mustafa Attia El-Sayed accused policemen at Mina El-Basal police station of torturing El-Sayed to death. The family stressed that a number of policemen stopped him in the street on Tuesday afternoon, grabbed him by his shirt and dragged him along the street alleging the implementation of an old judicial ruling in a case of a bank loan which had already been repaid by the victim who had reconciliated with the bank.

The Centre of Human Rights in Alexandria called on the attorney general to begin urgent investigations into the death of El-Sayed, who was killed by two secret police after he was dragged in the street in front of passers-by.

The Centre pointed out that El-Sayed is married with three children.
 
Following his murder a police officer came and randomly arrested witnesses, keeping them detained until 8 pm to change their testimonies, and then they were taken to the prosecution where they stated that “he died naturally” or suddenly fell dead!
Mohamed El-Sayed Attia, nephew of the victim, stated that his uncle was transferred to Al-Zahraa hospital after the assault; however, doctors refused to receive him because he was already dead and they transferred him to the morgue.
 
Mohamed stressed that witnesses changed initial testimonies after being detained for five hours in the police station.
 
He also stressed that his uncle, Ibrahim Attia El-Sayed, accused the police of killing his brother during the investigations by the prosecution.

Mohamed stressed that his uncle had tried to explain to the police that he had reconciliated with the bank and had documents to prove this; however, they refused to listen to him and insisted on dragging him in front of the people.
