Sources within the Supreme Council of Antiquities said that archaeological «Mohamed Abdel Fattah» Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities resigned on Tuesday from his post as Secretary General of the [Supreme Council of Antiquities], after growing sit-ins, strikes and demonstrations, which caused the closure of the headquarters building of the Center, during the past two days and moved on to the building of the Abbasid area in large numbers.
Council officials have been forced to call in troops from the military police and civilian police to disperse demonstrators in front of the building, who tried to enter by force.
Abdel-Fattah said that he had made his resignation «after the increase of these sit-ins and strikes», pointing out that he refuses to be responsible with no powers or just be an interface or a figurehead of the Department of Egypt's monuments and should be granted full powers to manage the SCA.
