Court releases Ultras Ahlawy members after airport protest

Nozha Misdemeanour Court released 19 members of the Ultras Ahlawy on LE2,000 bail each on charges of blocking Salah Salem Road and Galaa Bridge, following a welcome-back demonstration near to Cairo International Airport for the Ultras' handball team.

The prosecution had charged the 19 Ultras Ahlawy members with blocking roads and assaulting citizens and policemen. The suspects meanwhile denied the charges saying the police rounded them up randomly.

According to investigations, the suspects blocked roads and stopped traffic to push for the release of 25 of their colleagues who were arrested after assaulting police forces at the Cairo International Airport while receiving Ahly's handball team on Sunday.
