Emad Meteb handed suspended jail sentence
Emad Meteb has been handed a three-month suspended jail sentence by a Cairo court this morning, as well as being fined.
The former Egyptian Premier League top scorer had allegedly been in an altercation with the police in New Cairo over his illegally parked car, in which he pulled out a handgun to threaten an officer last April.
After appealing the court’s first ruling of a six-month jail sentence and 20,000 EGP bail, today the court reduced the ruling to a three-month suspended sentence, which according to the striker’s lawyer Hisham Abd Rabou, is “in Emad’s favor” and that despite the ruling, he is available to travel with Al Ahly outside the country.
Meteb is Al Ahly’s only striker left in the club’s African squad as Gedo and Amr Gamal have both suffered long term ACL injuries over the course of the season, while Ahmed Abdel-Zaher was not included in the Champions League squad.
