CAIRO – 22 October 2017: A Giza criminal court upheld on Sunday death sentences against 11 convicts over charges of murder attempt, inciting violence in a case dubbed in the media as the “Giza Terrorist Cell.”

The court ruling was issued after taking the Grand Mufti’s advisory opinion when it was given on September 9. The verdict could be challenged by the Attorney General and the defendants’ attorneys.

Other 14 convicts were sentenced, in absentia, to 25 years in prison, while another defendant was handed down a sentence of 10 years in prison.

According to the prosecution’s investigations, the defendants faced charges of violating personal freedom rights, providing terrorist groups with material and financial aid, vandalizing public properties, attempting to kill an officer in the General Directorate of the Giza Security Forces, vandalizing a police car, stealing weapons and manufacturing explosive devices in 2015.
