Egypt's Mansoura Criminal Court adjourned the trial of Alexandria's current
chief of security, who served as Daqahlia's chief of security during the
25 January revolution, on Saturday. The trial will resume on 12 June
Last week the attorney general referred Ahmed Abdel Basset, along with some of his assistants and other police officers, to trial for ordering the killing of peaceful protestors during revolution.
The others include Adel al-Barbari, director of the central security forces for the east Delta; Mahmoud Saqr, chief of Mansoura's law enforcement unit; and Hossam Abdel Rahman, an officer in Daqahlia's security force.
They allegedly incited officers securing demonstrations in public squares in Daqahlia to fire at protesters, aiming to kill some to terrify the rest.
