Interior Minister: Departments to combat extremism and monitor political and religious activities

Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim has reinstated departments' duty to combat extremism and monitor political and religious activities, activities which were suspended after the 25 January revolution.
 
He also said during a press conference on Saturday that promotions of police personnel would be announced on Monday.
 
“The untechnical restructuring of the Interior Ministry after the revolution, and the abolition of certain departments, are the reasons for the extremist activities that we see now,” Ibrahim said.
 
“Safety cannot be restored without political security,” he added.
