Syndicate mourns Al-Ahram journalist who took his own life

Ahram Online , Friday 29 Apr 2022

Egypt’s Journalists Syndicate has mourned the death of Emad El-Feki, a journalist at Al-Ahram who committed suicide at his office early morning on Thursday.



In a statement on Friday, the syndicate urged everyone to wait for the Public Prosecution’s investigations on the matter to complete and in the meantime to refrain from making "groundless" assumptions regarding the causes and circumstances of the incident.

El-Feki, a journalist in his fifties, passed away after reportedly hanging himself at his office in the establishment’s downtown headquarters. 

The cause and circumstances of the death, however, have not been officially determined.

“The syndicate calls on everyone to respect the sanctity of death and the right of the deceased and his family regarding the avoidance of making assumptions about the incident and its causes without verification and proof by evidence,” the syndicate said in a statement.

The syndicate said it is closely following up with the Al-Ahram Establishment to keep abreast of the investigation, stressing its full support for the family of the deceased.
