The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information today,was extremely alarmed about the stalling of the Public Prosecutor on investigating the communique filed by ANHRI and its team on 23/2/2011 against the boards of Mobinil , Vodafone and Itisalat GSM companies ,Link and TE Data ISPs, and both the Minister of Communications and chairman of the National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority accusing them of criminal responsibility in the killing of demonstrators and the harm resulting from the decision to cut communications and Internet services in Egypt during the revolution of January 25 thereby harming peaceful protesters.

The public prosecution called in the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information to take their accounts on the communique submitted by ANHRI and actually started to open an investigation on March 9th , 2011.It was expected that the Public Prosecution will call the defendants, of the chairmen of boards of telecommunications companies and Internet service to investigate and respond to the request of prosecutors, referring them to the criminal court to do its part to hold them accountable, but the prosecution since that date have not completed the investigation or call in any official in those companies or in the ministry of communications, which is considers according to the Arabic Network inaction of the prosecution to do its part in achieving justice in Egypt.

The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information said, “It is the prosecutors’ duty to call the defendants; chairmen of boards of directors of companies and officials of the ministry of communications and interrogate them in the communique submitted by the Network and its lawyers, because cutting off the communication services and assaulting the rights of innocent clients is a legal violation that resulted in panic to the families of the protesters and the death of some patients who could not call an ambulance. We cannot imagine this crime to pass unnoticed without opening a fair, transparent investigation and hold those responsible accountable .It is not acceptable that the Prosecutor General would leave the door open for impunity after the success of the revolution January 25th “.
