CAIRO: Abdullah Abdul Wahab, an Egyptian citizen, wrote on his Facebook account that his phone had been stolen, and that the prosecution responded by “releasing” him because he was “proved innocent” after he filed a report.
“40 days ago my tablet phone had been stolen and I filed report No. 3347 at Haram Police Station…Police officers told me to follow up on the report with the prosecution after a few days,” Wahab wrote on his page.
Wahab had discovered that the thief had transferred his phone credit to a number which he mentioned in the report to facilitate the thief’s capture.
When he went to the prosecution to follow up on the results of investigations, they told him that “Abdullah Abdul Wahab had been released because he was found to be innocent.”
