Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour sentenced to prison for insulting Ultras lawyer

Mortada MansourZamalek chairman Mortada Mansour has been sentenced to one-year in jail and handed a fine of EGP 10,000 for defaming (UWK) lawyer Tarek El-Awady.

The Dokki Misdemeanor Court verdict allows Mansour to avoid the prison sentence on a bail of EGP 1,000.

El-Awady filed a legal complaint against Mansour accusing him of defaming and verbally insulting him on an Egyptian satellite TV channel. The UWK lawyer said that he provided the prosecutor with CDs containing footage of the incidents.

Mansour had claimed on the TV show last September that El-Awady had previously burned a police vehicle and stolen their weapons and that he insulted police and army personnel. He also added that UWK lawyer received foreign funds from Qatar.

El-Awady said that Mansour’s statements aimed to incite the public opinion against him.

Four members of Zamalek’s UWK were detained for an alleged attack on the club president in October, and he also survived an alleged assassination attempt a few months prior.
