CAIRO – 4 August 2022: Egypt’s Public Prosecution has ordered probe after a video showing the body of student Nayera Ashraf, who was brutally murdered by her colleague in June, was leaked on social media.

Social media users have been shocked by a video leaked recently showing a nurse while showing deep wounds all over Ashraf’s body in the hospital’s morgue.

Ashraf’s family filed a petition to the prosecution blaming the head of El Mansoura General Hospital and the medical team responsible for Nayera at the hospital for leaking a video for her body, the prosecution said in a statement.

On Wednesday, the police told the prosecution that it managed to detect the nurse that filmed the body and leaked it, adding that another nurse also circulated the video, the statement said.

The two nurses admitted being behind the incident, the statement said, noting that they will be also interrogated before the prosecution.

A state of public uproar prevailed on social media after Nayera Ashraf, a girl in her twenties, was killed on 20 June by a colleague, Mohamed Adel, who admitted murdering her in retaliation after she refused his proposal.

The crime scene was captured on camera and went viral on social media, where floods of angry comments calling for justice took over different platforms ever since.

Last month, the Mansoura Criminal Court sentenced the murderer to death after taking Grand Mufti’s religious advise. However, the ruling is not final and was appealed.
