Abdel Samad Contacts Fahmy, Affirms That Media Professionals Are Excluded From Curfew Decision On All Days, Including Sundays

Caretaker Minister of Information, Dr. Manal Abdel Samad Najd, held a phone conversation with Caretaker Interior and Municipalities Minister, Mohamed Fahmy, during which it was emphasized that media professionals are excluded from the declared curfew on all days, including Sundays, starting today, January 10, 2021, according to the Cabinet’s circular.

In this connection, Abdel-Samad indicated that she had received many calls inquiring about the issue, adding that some media staff were intercepted by Internal Security Forces checkpoints and received fines for moving about, contrary to the content of the aforementioned circular.

The Minister deemed the circular clear in excluding media professionals from the declared curfew on all days, including Sundays; however, she noted that in order to avoid any confusion later on, individuals can always resort to both parties directly concerned in this matter, i.e. the Ministries of Information and the Interior.
