Verdict in ‘Prisoner Transport Van’ case on August 13

The Khanka Misdemeanor Court has set August 13 as the verdict date for the re-trial of four police officers accused of causing the death of 37 prisoners and the injury of several others inside a prisoner transport van. The prisoners were being transported from the Heliopolis police station to the Abu Zaabal prison.
The Court of Cassation had overruled a previous verdict in January, during which the officers were acquitted, after the prosecution challenged it.
