The Tanta prosecution has ordered an investigation of Hamdy Al-Fakharany, a lawyer and former Member of Parliament.

Al-Fakharany and his assistant are being investigated for their involvement in the clashes that erupted in Al-Gharbiya Governorate.

Al-Fakharany said: “Yes, I learned from the media…. It is a matter of settling scores.”

Al-Fakaharny had filed a lawsuit claiming that the referendum on the constitution is void because it deprived almost 70% of eligible voters from voting. Al-Fakharany had also filed a lawsuit during Mubarak’s rule in 2010, accusing the government of wasting public funds in the sale of the Shbeen Weaving Company.

Earlier this month, a man threatened Al-Fakharany outside his home and took out a bladed weapon but Al-Fakharany asked for help from surrounding people. Al-Fakharany was assaulted during a protest in objection to the constitution last November.

On Friday, the office of the governor of Al-Gharbiya was set ablaze, the city council of Al-Mahalla and several police departments were attacked. There are 22 people detained on the back of the violence. Of the detained, 11 are from the industrial city of Al-Mahalla and 13 are from Tanta.

Following the detention order of the detainees in Tanta, protesters in solidarity with them gathered outside the local administrative building.
