US Embassy”s Employee Leaked Information, Led to the Murder of A Human Rights Lawyer in Egypt
The Victim Killed by Moslem Brotherhood’s Terrorists, and SSI Officers
The Coptic Christian Community is outraged, and shocked by the killing of a young Lawyer in Egypt by Moslem terrorists and SSI officers in Egypt, July 23, 04. ACU and all peace loving people should express their anger and protest for this horrible crime against humanity. We call upon President Bush, Congress, and Department of States for immediate investigation regarding the murder of Mr. Sabry Zaky Esq., 30 years old, by Moslem Brotherhood terrorists, and SSI (State Security Investigation) in Souhag. Mr. Zaky requested a meeting with the USCIFR, US Commission for International Religious Freedom, during their latest visit to Egypt, on July 17, 2004. His request was turned down by, Mr. Kareem Sobhey, who is working at the Human Rights Department at the US Embassy in Cairo. The victim was killed few days after the rejection of his request to meet the commission. We believe that there was a connection between employees working at the US Embassy and some members of Moslem Brotherhood terrorist organization. Mr. Zaky was killed by choking to death, and his body thrown from his apartment “˜s Balcony in Souhag, in Upper Egypt. Mr. Zaky contacted us in the US to help him against threats and persecution of government officials who are member in the same terrorist organizations supported by the State Security investigation (SSI).
ACU along with NACA made some investigation regarding this unspeakable crime. Our findings showed that Mr. Zaky was a successful Attorney helping the Coptic Christians against the persecution of the Arab Islamic government and its allies of Moslem Brotherhood terrorists.
He called NACA, National American Coptic Assembly, on July 7, 04 asking the help regarding the persecution of the Moslem Brotherhood, and SSI. NACA has recommended the victim to go and meet with USCIRF members during their visit to Egypt between July 15, to July 23, 04. On July 18, 04 Mr. Zaky made a second call to NACA telling that his request was denied by, Mr. Kareem Sobhey at US Embassy. The third and last call was on July 20, 04, informing NACA that his license is reinstated, and will travel back to Souhag from Cairo. Friday July 23, 04, after the Moslem prayers, terrorists of Moslem Brotherhood, with the cover of the SSI have assaulted, and murdered the victim at his office. On July 24, 04 victim’s brother Gamal, ZAKY called NACA telling that his brother was killed by terrorists. Details of the vicious crime was explained in a fax letter to NACA, on Aug. 26, 04. (Please read the translation enclosed).
The victim’s family include 60 years old mother, Gamal, Raymon, Adel, and sister Nema”a, who live in fear and terror that is being posed on all of them by Moslem terrorists, and SSI without any sort of protection.
ACU, and NACA is calling upon President Bush, US Congress, and Secretary of State intervention and initiate immediate investigations around this issue of collaboration between Islamic terrorists group and US Embassy in Cairo, that resulted in the murder of Human Rights Lawyer in Egypt. Please keep us posted by writing to our above address. In addition, the investigation requested is not enough, but the whole regime of Mubarak must hold responsible for all such crime. On the last few weeks, all crimes that committed against Coptic Christians clearly showed the fingerprints of government agencies involvement with Moslem Brotherhood terrorists, and Jihadists of Egypt. Thus, we request and looking for a serious action regarding the state sponsor terrorism of the Arab Islamic regime of Egypt. Thank you very much for your help.
The following is a translation of the late Mr. Sabry Zaky-Esq’s Brother’s letter to Mr. Morris Sadek.
Mr. Morris Sadek
President of National American Coptic Assembly-USA
From: Gamal Qidice Zaky, and Raymond Qidice Zaky
Souhag, Khalf Markaz Al-Shourta
Rescue us from death and persecution, our souls and belongings in danger. Terrorists killed our brother Mr. Sabry Qidice- Esq, on July 23, 04, because he opposed the religious persecution. His death was blessed, and incited by officials, on the top of them; Souhag’s Bar Association, and some members of General Prosecutor Office. The persecution has started against our murdered brother sometimes ago; he was falsely accused, and framed in criminal allegations. The government officials have been repeatedly attempt hunting down our brother, until they succeeded to suspend his license. Their criminal plan to stop him, has reached the peak, just after returning back from Cairo by assassinating him in Souhag City, on July 23, 04. The police did everything possible to show the killing as a suicide death committed by the victim himself. The truth is that, our brother was killed by Fathey Thabet Allam along with other terrorists, who was repeatedly imprisoned, and was posing threats to our brother. On Friday Prayer of July 22, 04, the terrorists led by Allam, forcibly break in his office, assaulted him, choked him to death, then they throw his body from the back window of his office’s kitchen. Some people have witnessed the crime include, employers of Ideal Refrigeration Co., and some other neighbors of the adjacent building. All were afraid to give true information to a Police Officer, Hany Gamal, who was implicated in Al Kusheh massacre. We have tried to file a criminal charge against Allam at DA office, but the General Prosecutor Attorney Maher Rashwan refused the complaint and insisted to be a suicide case, in addition he refused to confiscate the mobile phone number 010-461-5546, of our brother “˜s secretary Amnaa Mohammed Ahmed (a Moslem), who was there at the crime scene. We believe that some calls were made between her and Mr. Maher Abdulla Rishwan, General Prosecutor, officials from DA office, and the Police. More later on there were some rumors spread among other Lawyers that our brother was killed because he contacted you, (Morris Sadek) by SSI as a punishment.
Therefore, we are looking for you to help us to arrest and punish the perpetrators.
