Accepting the writ of “Walid Mohamed Hamid Aqlan” and suspending the probation imposed on him

1 June 2021

The first circuit had decided yesterday to accept the writ of “Walid Mohamed Hamid Aqlan”, and to suspend the police probation that was imposed on him, pending case No. 5976 of 2013, the New Felonies of Heliopolis, known as “El-Ethadia events”, filed under No. 7278 of 2013 East Cairo, in which he’s accused of participating in a gathering, displaying force, destroying public properties, and assaulting a public official during and because of the performance of their work.

The public prosecution had imposed the police probation sentence on the defendant as a complementary penalty after he had served the period that the court had sentenced him to 3 years in prison, and the court’s decision came yesterday after he had spent nearly a year and a half in probation.

It should be noted that AFTE had filed last April, a lawsuit No. 44623 of 75, before the Administrative Court / the First Circuit, on behalf of the defendant, to appeal the provision of the administration authority to refrain from designating his residence as a place of probation, instead of designating the Bulaq Dakrour police station as a place of probation.
