The Egyptian Court of Cassation turned over acquittal rulings for three police officers and a police informant in a case of torturing a man to death 13 years ago. The court ordered a retrial in front of another circuit in the criminal Court after the public prosecution demanded either an appeal or a retrial.


It said that the prosecution accuses the defendants of torturing to death citizen Abduallah Ibrahim while attempting to force to him to make confessions of committing a murder crime.

The defendants even tortured members of his family through stripping them naked and hanging them on a door and brutally beating them in the police station of Bila, Kafr Al-Sheikh.


For his part, Hafez Abu Sidaa, the secretary General of the Egyptian Human Rights Organization, attributed this ruling to the nature of this case and its painful incidents.

He confirmed that such cases provoke every one all over the world, especially when you see a citizen tortured to death without any clear justification for this treatment which isn"t suitable for humans. This actually had an effect on the court and judges making them issue this ruling, he said
