2 Egyptian police officers set fake checkpoint to rob driver

The Egyptian prosecutors have ordered the arrest of two police officers over allegations they set up a fake security road block and stole from civilians in New Cairo on the outskirts of the capital.

Investigations by the prosecution revealed the policemen, an officer and a corporal at Shorouk police station, stole LE2,000 from a driver at a bogus police checkpoint on the Cairo-Suez Road.

The victim told the prosecution that the two policemen, who were in uniform at the time of the incident, stopped his vehicle and asked for his car registration and licence, before confiscating his money.

The two men had also allegedly committed others acts of theft, such as storming an apartment under the false pretext of conducting a search, and stole the owners' belongings.

Egyptian police regularly set up checkpoints around the country to search for unregistered or stolen vehicles as well as persons dodging arrest warrants.
