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.
