The Alexandria Court of Appeals set 3 October as the starting date for the trial of Sabry Nakhnoukh Helmy, the so-called “most dangerous thug in Egypt.”
Nakhnoukh was arrested with 16 of his assistants in a villa in King Maryout, Alexandria. Public prosecutors have charged him and his gang with thuggery, possession of weapons and drugs, facilitating prostitution, and impersonating a judicial official.
Police seized from his villa an automatic gun, a 9 mm caliber Glock pistol, and a Smith and Wesson 9 mm pistol, as well as 847 rounds of ammunition, four knives and four stun guns, as well as an identity card for another official bearing Nakhnoukh's image.
