The “Battle of the Camel” refers to the day when camels and horses launched into Tahrir Square on 2 February, attacking protesters, and leaving several dead.
The prosecution accused Mansour of killing and cooperating with the killing of the protesters during the “Battle of the Camel”. Meanwhile, the former head of Zamalek football club has denied all the allegations and claims to not know anything about the subject.
The fact-finding committee has revealed some details about the accusations against Mansour of the killing of protesters, with reference to eyewitness’ reports.
Ahmed Mansour, the son of the accused, in addition to some of his supporters, was seen before the courts’ complex where the sentence was announced, chanting against the sentence and very irritated.
Mansour was then moved to Tora prison where important Egyptian figures of the former regime are being detained. The two sons of ousted President Hosni Mubarak were also arrested and taken to Tora Prison today.
