The Daily News Egypt - - Politics - By Mo­hammed El-Said

The fam­ily of the Egyp­tian engi­neer Tarek Al-He­nawy, who was killed, de­manded on Mon­day that the Egyp­tian gov­ern­ment not re­lease the Ital­ian tourist ac­cused of beat­ing Al-He­nawy to death and ban him from leav­ing the coun­try.

The daugh­ter of the engi­neer, Hadeer Al-He­nawy, told Daily News Egypt Mon­day that if the gov­ern­ment al­lowed the Ital­ian to leave Egypt, her fam­ily will sue the gov­ern­ment and will take all le­gal mea­sures to sue the sus­pect in his coun­try.

On Sun­day,the Red Sea Court re­leased the Ital­ian tourist on bail of EGP 100,000 pend­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions.The same court had re­newed the cus­tody of the Ital­ian ci­ti­zen for 15 days un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion last Au­gust.

The Ital­ian tourist was ar­rested a month ago and ac­cused of beat­ing the Egyp­tian na­tional to death in Marsa Alam in the Red Sea gov­er­norate af­ter the vic­tim pre­vented him from swim­ming in an un­der-con­struc­tion re­sort in which Al-He­nawy was the su­per­vi­sor.

Pre­vi­ously, the foren­sic medicine re­port re­sults pointed out that the vic­tim died be­cause of the beat­ing re­ceived by the sus­pect, the lawyer of the vic­tim, Samir Sabry, told Daily News Egypt.

Sabry pre­vi­ously stated that Ar­ti­cle No. 1 of the law, which was is­sued by Pres­i­dent Ab­del Fat­tah Al-Sisi in Novem­ber 2014,does not ap­ply in this case be­cause the sus­pect is ac­cused of mur­der.

The ar­ti­cle gives the pres­i­dent of the state the right to hand over for­eign de­fen­dants to their coun­tries in ac­cor­dance with the high ben­e­fit of the state af­ter be­ing in­ter­ro­gated by the prose­cu­tion and af­ter the agree­ment of the cab­i­net.
