Egypt's top prosecutor ordered on Thursday the immediate re-opening of Matariya Hospital so medical care can resume after its doctors launched a strike over an reported assault by a group of policemen last week.

Prosecutor-General Nabil Sadek launched an investigation into the closure of the hospital to take legal action against those responsible for the suspension of this public service.

According to a statement issued by the prosecutor-general's office, the closure of the hospital and the suspension of medical service for citizens are considered a "crime" that is punishable by law and is against the Egyptian constitution.

The doctors started the strike last week after two of their colleagues were reportedly assaulted by a group of low-ranking policemen.

The doctors stated that they would strike until legal action was taken against the policemen involved in the incident  

Egypt's Doctors Syndicate fully supported the doctors' actions.

If he wants to flex his mussels
He should confront the police thugs, not the doctors. It's so easy to come hard on the civilized law-abiding doctors not the the criminal police thugs!
