The committee set up to investigate Suez state security files has revealed that security officials transferred all their documents to a safe location in Ain El-Sokhna. They chose the day when people were busy with a memorial at the city’s stadium for the martyrs to do so.
It took the state security officials four hours to transfer the documents in security vehicles, the exact same amount of time taken by the memorial. After the memorial a fire erupted in the state security headquarters which prompted citizens to try to get in.
Currently the investigative committee is trying to find out which agency fabricated the files. According to Ahram Online's source, the files were most likely created by a sovereign security agency. The transferred documents were handed over to the investigating committee without the loss of a single one.
Moreover, the files leaked from Suez and Nasr City state security headquarters are not similar to the original files found in Ain El-Sokhna. The first target certain prominent figures which could be interpreted as a means of revenge and an attempt at ruining their chances ahead of the coming elections. Also the files handed in to the investigation committee are rich with economic, social and political information.
Last week protesters converged upon several state security headquarters, after fires erupted in the buildings, to salvage any remaining documents. Many files have since been leaked to and circulated in the media and on the internet.
