BREAKING| Ashmawy tried before military court for killing dozens in terror attacks

Tue, Jun. 25, 2019
CAIRO - 25 June 2019: Egyptian terrorist Hesham Ashmawy, who was handed in May to Egypt by the Libyan army was refererd to military court over executing terror attacks that caused the death of over 50 people, sources revealed.

Ashmawy will be judged in five lawsuits in which he earlier received verdicts in absentia after carrying out a number of terrorist attacks that caused the death of 54 army and police personnel and civilians.

Ashmawy was arrested in 2018 in Derna and handed over by the Libyan army to the General Intelligence Security (GIS) in Egypt in May.

The handing over of Hisham Ashmawy, the ex-military officer and the mastermind behind several high profile attacks in Egypt, was seen as a revenge for dozens of terror victims among army and police forces over the past years.
