September 9th: The aftermath

Updated on 11/11 at 4:20AM

In light of the events that unfolded by the Israeli Embassy and the Giza Security Directorate Friday evening, subsequent to the 09/09 demonstrations, a number of demonstrators were arrested by army and police forces. The identities of the detainees have not been officially confirmed yet, and there is strong speculation that they will be tried in a military court.

38 people have already been questioned by the Military Prosecutor, and 10 people are currently being questioned but our lawyers were denied entry, and thus could not attend the questioning with the latter group.

Al-Ahram Online Portal has published the names of 19 individuals supposedly detained at the Military Prosecution Facility (C28) consequent to Friday evening's events.

Below are the charges faced by the 19 detained:

1) Deliberate destruction/vandalism of public property belonging to a state institution, including state facilities and the front gate of the Giza Security Directorate.

2) Use of force and violence with public servants, including members of the armed forces and the police, that were carrying out a public duty of protecting and securing the aforementioned facilities.

3) Intentional endangerment of public transportation facilities and pedestrians in the area of the Giza Security Directorate.

4) Intentional damage to the property of others.

5) Intentionally setting fire to police vehicles.

6) Use of force and threats of violence to terrorize innocent passers-by.

7) Possession of "explosives" and "molotov" cocktails.

8) Assembly and the use of force and violence, thus endangering public security.
