The Egyptian Media Syndicate decided, on Saturday, to cancel the permit to practice the profession of the journalist Tamer Amin due to the inappropriate statements he made about girls in Upper Egypt.
The Syndicate said in a statement that “after the end of the investigations that lasted about three and a half hours, it was established that Tamer Amin violated the media code of conduct and the code of professional conduct.”
In its statement, the Syndicate relied on the “Chapter of General Principles in its paragraphs 2, 4, 6 and 7, paragraph 2 of which stipulated respect for the divine religions, societal values, ethics and traditions of the profession.”
The statement added, “Paragraph No. 4 affirms the role of the media in protecting national unity and national cohesion, and Paragraph 6 affirms respect for human dignity and not offending any group of society.”
And he continued, “In the chapter on duties, the aforementioned violated Paragraph 7, which stipulated that the privacy and family life of all citizens should not be violated.”
The statement concluded, “Accordingly, Tariq Saada, the head of the Media Syndicate and Senator No. 10 of 2021, was issued to cancel the permit to practice the profession issued to Mr. Tamer Amin for violating the Media Honor Charter in the aforementioned articles.”
The Office of the Supreme Council for Media Regulation in Egypt decided to suspend the media program, Tamer Amin, and summon him for investigation, due to inappropriate statements he made about girls in Upper Egypt.
