Military Spokesperson Ahmed Ali has said that there are no secret prisons or unannounced prisons being run by the military in any Egyptian city.

This came in an official statement which was published on the military spokesperson’s Facebook page and has came in response to claims by some news services that the military is running a prison called El-Serdab Prison located in the governorate of Suez.

 News of the prison was published on Rasd News Network, Moheet Media Network and other news portals. The media reports surfaced after the wife of a missing officer claimed her husband was in that prison on television.

She had claimed that the prison was designed by the US and that 50 percent of its management was American and the other half was Egyptian, the media reports said.

Ali’s statement ran, “this information is not correct in form and substance and is not based on tangible facts. The publishing and circulation of some news services of these lies without support or evidence is considered a contribution to systematic campaigns that aim to distort the armed forces, damage it, and negatively impact the morale of its members.”

He called on anyone with information or evidence on these secret prisons to present them to the Ministry of Defense or the Military Spokesperson.

Finally, he called on media to ensure the accuracy of information before publishing it, “for the sake of the nation and its security.”

“Why is there this vast amount of lies, rumours, and slander targeting the armed forces and its troops daily?” he asked.

    Because the army lies, murders, and tortures it’s own citizens? Because the army has been a bastion of thieves and corrupt individuals that would see their own interests and wealth served before those of their men or their own people? Or is it maybe because the army is actually a vast corrupt enterprise that steals jobs from citizens and pays no taxes bringing Egypt close to the edge of economic collapse while 40% of the population live below the poverty line?
    Maybe that has something to do with your credibility and image?
