Court re-opens investigation for Air Defense stadium massacre
A year after the Air Defense Stadium massacre, in which 20 Zamalek fans lost their lives, Cairo Criminal Court ordered to re-open the investigation for the case due to insufficient evidence and documents.
The court decided to postpone the trial for the 16 defendants, while they remain in prison for 6 months, until the investigations are continued and clarified. The defendants were previously charged with murder, sabotage, rioting and the possession of explosives by the ex-prosecutor Hisham Barakat.
The previous investigations issued by the police stated that Zamalek fan group, Ultras White Knights, were responsible for the deaths because of a ‘deadly stampede’.
On the other hand, Zamalek fans accused the police for firing tear gas while the fans were trapped through a metal passageway that leads to the stadium gates.
