Ahram Online , Sunday 4 Jul 2021


Egyptian authorities executed Moatez Mostafa Hassan on Sunday, who was convicted of attempting to assassinate former head of Alexandria security directorate police general Mostafa El-Nemr in March 2018.

The Supreme State Security sentenced three people to death and 11 others to life in prison in June 2020 for the attempted assassination, which killed two of his guards in a car bombing.

The case included 11 defendants, only two of which were arrested while the rest are on the run and stood trial in absentia.

The prosecution accused the defendants of a number of charges, including joining the Hasm terrorist organization, planning to kill the head of Alexandria security directorate and his guards, killing two of the guards and destroying public and private property.
