North Giza prosecution referred 125 suspects affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood and revolutionary groups to Misdemeanor Court for allegedly rioting, resisting police in Dokki and Mohie Eddin Abul Ezz street on 6 October during a march for the Brotherhood from Giza Square to Tahrir while in possession of weapons.
A date for trial will be announced, according to prosecution, though sources said the first session will be on 29 March.
Prosecution accused the suspects of rioting, possessing arms, thuggery, hampering traffic and resisting police.
Prosecution faced the suspects with new videos that show some of them shooting residents and police after failing to pass from Dokki toward Tahrir.
Investigations showed that the Brotherhood supporters were staging marches across Nahda and Giza squares. When residents prevented them for shouting anti-military slogans on 6 October, the protesters used the weapons to intimidate the citizens, ahead of police arrival. The suspects were arrested after breaking into Dokki police station and setting it on fire.
The supporters allegedly smashed four police vehicles, and 20 private ones, destroying stores and hurling stones on the police station.
