CAIRO: Pharmacists Syndicate deputy Mohamed Saudi demanded Minister of Interior Mohamed Ibrahim Friday to provide security for all pharmacies across Egypt, where many of them were subjected to criminal acts since the January 25 Revolution.
In a statement issued late Friday, Saudi affirmed the syndicate’s support for the Damietta Pharmacists Syndicate that received threats of setting its pharmacies on fire following the syndicate’s decisions to strike and close pharmacists from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. starting from Wednesday.
Damietta Pharmacists Syndicate head Mohamed Sabry told Youm7 that he met with the governorate’s security officials and told them about the citizens’ threats to burn and vandalize the pharmacies that joined the strike and demanded them to provide security. He filed a report holding the state responsible for any accidents against the pharmacists.
