Ahmed Abdul-Ghani has officially accused his fellow attorney Mortada Mansour of being ‎involved in the notorious attacks on protesters in Tahrir Square on 2 February.‎
Thugs penetrated the epicentre of the Janauary 25 Revolution using horses and camels to violently assault the peaceful protesters. Several people were killed ‎in the process.‎

It’s understood the incident was planned by senior officials to disperse the crowds in Tahrir ‎Square, but failed to force the protesters out and the sit-in continued until former president ‎Hosni Mubarak was toppled on 11 February.‎

Former parliamentarian Mansour, renowned for his fiery temper and ‎controversial media statements, was one of many public figures who disparaged the 18-day revolt ‎and its goals. ‎

Abdul-Ghani sent to the prosecutor-general a video in which Mansour is allegedly inducing the perpetrators to strike the protesters. It’s believed to have been shot right before the incident.‎

Abdul-Ghani also accused another two former Parliament members of being ‎among those who masterminded the infamous attack.
