Twelve policemen in Sohag sentenced to prison for assaulting the judiciary

The Sohag Criminal Court on Tuesday sentenced the former deputy sheriff of the Saqalta Police Station to three years in prison, another police officer and two police corporals to life imprisonment in absentia, and eight other policemen to 10 years, all for assaulting the judiciary and storming the Saqalta Prosecution headquarters.
The case dates back to 20 October of last year when the police officers of Saqalta clashed with the prosecutors for referring their fellow officers to investigation. The officers were referred for failing to take the testimonies of people injured in an accident, in a car belonging to a member of the Nag Hammadi Public Prosecution in Qena.
