Officials try to silence Egyptian football supporters

Supporters of the Egyptian football team Al-Ahly, made their concerns with the Egyptian Football Association very clear during a recent football match when a banner with the word 'thieves' branded on it was raised by fans.

Following the display, the director of the state-run broadcasting TV station was suspended. Ahmed al-Hun was informed by the minister for information that he had not followed the correct code of conduct or ethics in his decision to show supporter's with the large protest banner nor was it conducive to maintaining and promoting Egyptian morals and values. This very fact only adds to supporter's disgruntled attitudes toward the corrruption of the football association and the fundamental issue that the organisation is still run by a number of the former president's associates.
