Sohag criminal court issued a verdict on Tuesday the 6th of January 2015 on a group of policemen after convicting them with “assaulting the Judicial authorities, Breaking into Sakalta Prosecution office, and verbally assaulting its members”. The court sentenced the deputy Sheriff of the Sakalta police station to 3 years in jail, an officer and two enlisted personnel to life imprisonment, and 8 other policemen to 10 years in Jail. The Incident goes back to the 20th of October 2014, when a group of policemen working in the Sakalta police station clashed verbally with prosecutors of Sakalta. This came after the head prosecutor of Sakalta launched an inquiry implicating Sakalta police officers, for releasing the victims of a car accident involving a prosecutor’s car without taking their testimony on the accident, which is illegal according Egyptian law. The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) stresses the importance of the implementation of the law on everyone without exception, which affirms the preservation of the prestige of the Judiciary, and enhances the balance between the three branches of government. The EOHR also stresses the necessity of the commitment of the three branches of government to the regulations that govern the relationship between them as stipulated by law, and by the constitution.
