Egyptian doctor films former finance minister in London

"I felt my blood boil when I saw him walking down the street freely," said the Egyptian psychiatrist, Mohamed Abdel Ghani, while describing his feelings the moment he saw fugitive minister, Youssef Boutros-Ghali, walking freely down a street in London, before he decided to chase Boutros-Ghali and film him using his cell phone.

The video was circulated by activists on social networks like Facebook. The video shows the doctor while chasing Boutros-Ghali, a former Egyptian finance minister, telling him that his hands are stained with the blood of the martyrs and demanding that he to hand himself in to Interpol regarding allegations of corruption.

Al-Masry Al-Youm spoke to Abdel Ghani, 33, who said he chased Boutros-Ghali for half an hour on Knightsbridge Street in London.

Abdel Ghani said that while he was driving his car, he saw Boutros-Ghali walking down the street with two women, and called to him saying "Boutros-Ghali, you thief!" The two ladies escaped to a store and Ghali took out his cell phone and started talking. Abdel Ghani continued saying, "You thief, there is a arrest warrant against you by Interpol and you are wanted." Boutros-Ghali wanted to photo Abdel Ghani, threatened to call the police and told him to shut up. He also tried to take the phone from him and attack him but Abdel Ghani managed to continue filming.

Head of the criminal police, General Madgy al-Shafie, said that he decided to officially address British Interpol to know about the destination of the police report filed by Abdel Ghani, as he has located the former minister in London.
