Egyptian teacher banned for harassing 120 female students


The Supreme Administrate Court in Egypt on Sunday pronounced its final verdict banning a teacher from practicing teaching after convicting him of harassing 120 female elementary students in the governorate of Iskandariyeh. Commenting, the undersecretary of the ministry of education, Youssef Deeb, explained to AFP that the incident goes back to 2013, and confirmed that the above educator has been dismissed in the same year by the school administration. The decision was further corroborated by the Administrative Court, Deeb said, adding, that the convict appealed but his request was rejected. For his part, the minister of education, Tarek Shawki, stressed that his ministry is fighting harassment but without disclosing all the measures taken to this effect for reasons of confidentiality.
