For background on Dr. Mohamed Fatouh' complaint


Ccomplete translation of Dr. Fatouh complaint document (The complaint
Dr. Mohamed Fatouh filed in the Egyptian Medical Syndicate Headquarter's Professional Ethics Department against Dr. Monis)

Translation:

In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The Compassionate

To Prof. Dr.: Head of Egyptian Medical Syndicate of Egypt
To Prof. Dr.: Head of Professional Ethics Department, Egyptian Medical
Syndicate of Egypt

I am presenting this complaint to you to investigate it, against Dr.
Ahmed Monis, Professor of Gastroenterology and Liver Diseases, Ain
Shams University, who is a registered doctor in the syndicate records,
for the following:

1 - He announced that he was part of invention of a device that he
claimed can treat many viral diseases, and conducted media marketing
to the same device in published, visual, and radio media without
reference to of any scientific tools, and known scientific research
procedures in the invention of the device, which resulted in harming
the reputation of Egyptian physicians inside and outside Egypt.

2- He willfully harmed the health of millions of Egyptian patients,
physically and psychologically, through participation in marketing the
device, which resulted in a portion of patients quitting their current
treatment, waiting for this alleged treatment to be available.

I ask you to investigate the causes of this complaint, and apply the
most severe penalties according to the Professional Ethics Regulations
against him if found guilty,to make him an example for anyone thinking
of harming the reputation of Egyptian physicians, or harming the
health of Egyptian patients for personal gains.

With high and due respect,

Presented by
Dr. Mohamed Fatouh Mohamed Awad
Surgery Consultant
Cairo Medical Syndicate Council member
President of Tahrir Doctors Society
Dated: 30/06/2014



For background on Dr. Ahmed Monis attack against Mohamed Fatouh in court

The lawsuit Dr. Ahmed Monis made against Dr. Fatouh for slander
and libel / defamation, concluding that:
- The complaint test contained false attributes to Dr. Monis like: "misleading the public" which is considered insults and defamation to the notable professor.
- Publishing of Dr. Fatouh's complaint on his own facebook wall, saying
under it "we will never have fears anymore, we will clean means we will clean" .. and giving the device the name "kofta device".. are defaming the device
and the professor.
(Kofta are Egyptian Arabic word for grilled bars of meat, the
spokesman of the team Dr. Ibrahim Abdel Atti said in the official
announcement:

"We will take AIDS from the patient, then made it a Kofta bar, then
give it back to the patient to feed on it"
For more information on the words "kofta" in that context of the device invention, please follow these search results: "kofta device doctor".
