The case against the two police officers accused of killing Khaled Saeed has been postponed indefinitely after the judiciary committee failed to show up to the Alexandria court on Saturday.
Khaled Saeed's family and supporters have renewed their demonstrations outside of the courthouse to protest the latest postponement.
Policemen, Mahmoud Salah Mahmoud and Awad Ismael Soliman are accused of beating to death 28-year old Said, which they deny.
Popular outrage was triggered across the country when morgue pictures of Saeed’s disfigured face and accounts of his confrontation with police were circulated through social media sites after his death on 6 June, 2010.
Several demonstrations have been held already in Alexandria and Cairo demanding the prosecution of police officers allegedly responsible for Saeed’s death.
Khaled Saeed was one of the poster faces for the 25 January Revolution in Egypt. A Facebook page under the name “We are all Khaled Said” was set up in an effort to 'do something.' The members of that Facebook group called for peaceful protests, and eventually were the ones who called for the first demonstrations on the 25 January, which was initially planned as a day of anger against police brutality but later developed into a national-scale revolt.
