El-Adly Videogate: Correction and Updates

by , under Blog

I’ve just spoken now with Nasser Amin, Emad Kabeer’s lawyer, and I need to correct a previously posted information, as well as provide a quick update…

The trial of the Bulaq al-Daqrour torturers is NOT starting tomorrow as I posted before. Emad will show up tomorrow in court with his lawyer, but for another case. A judge will look into the charges leveled by the Bulaq police agents at Emad for “resisting authorities and assaulting a police officer.” Lawyer Nasser Amin assured me Emad will be acquitted.

Meanwhile, Police Captain Islam Nabih and Corporal Reda Fathi, who tortured and sexually abused Emad, are detained in one of the Central Security Forces camp, Nasser added. Their trial will not start at anytime before March, he said.

On another front, Al-Masry Al-Youm reported today that General Habib el-Adly, the Interior Minister “gave his instructions” to police officials in Cairo and the provinces to try to identify the woman torture victim who appeared in the police brutality video recently leaked by Wael Abbas.
