Attackers of Egypt judge released on bail

Judge Ahmad al-Zind, head of Egypt Judge Club


A South Cairo court decided on Monday to release the three defendants who attacked Judge Ahmed al-Zind, who is the head of the Judges' Club, on bail of 5, 000 Egyptian pounds, each.

The prosecution had accused the defendants of deliberately attacking the judge and attempting to raid the premises but they denied the charges filed against them.

Zind was transferred to a local hospital after he received minor injuries when the attackers hurled stones at him last Sunday upon his exiting of the Club following a session to discuss the referendum on Egypt's new constitution.
