The Shubra criminal court, Egypt, adjourned on Saturday the case against the four policemen accused of killing demonstrators during Egypt’s January 25 Revolution. The next session is to take place on the first of October.
The fourth session took place on Saturday amidst strong security presence surrounding the court. The case was adjourned to give lawyers a chance to review the case’s evidence.
The four policemen are accused of resorting to violence and plotting to kill demonstrators in attempts to prevent the Shubra protests from reaching downtown. The clashes between police and demonstrators in an area between Shubra and downtown on 28 January led to the death of 20 protesters and left 40 other injured.
The accused are Farouq Lashin, former head of Qalioubiya Security; Gamal Hosny, deputy director of security for South Qaliubiya; Ahmed Momtaz, deputy director of Shubra Security; and Samir Zaky head of Security Assistance.
