Alexandria Criminal Court adjourns trial of Sabri Nakhnoukh who faces charges of unlawful gun possession

Alexandria Criminal Court has adjourned the trial of notorious Mubarak-era thug Sabri Nakhnoukh until 3 November.

Nakhnoukh, who has admitted facilitating large-scale vote rigging in favour of the now-defunct National Democratic Party, was arrested in August at his villa near Alexandria on charges of "thuggery," unlicensed possession of weapons, drugs possession and involvement in prostitution.

Present at the trial were a number of the defendant's supporters holding signs stating: "We are all Nakhnoukh."
