He added that despite the “patriotic situations” where the police apparatus have proved to be a valuable state institutions, incidents of police brutality should be countered by legislations to stop all such actions along with its doers.
Al-Sisi met Friday Abdel Ghaffar before the launching of the COMESA conference in Sharm Al-Sheikh.
The president decided to present these legislations to the parliament in 15 days, to punish whoever violates the rights of civilians.
Meanwhile a protest during the funeral of Mohamed Ismail, the driver who was killed in the district of Bab Al-Khalq in Cairo by a shooting reportedly followed an argument between him and the police officer.
The protesters chanted against the police apparatus, and stood for a while in front of the Cairo Security Directorate.
