CAIRO: The Cassation Court ruled Monday it would allow the appeal of 22 suspects accused of killing police officer Nabil Farrag in an attack outside Giza’s Kerdasa police station in August 2013, shortly after the dispersal of the Rabaa al-Adaweya and Al Nahda sit-ins, Youm7 reported.

The appeal request that by the defendants claimed that the first trial made errors including misapplying the law, and only relying on security forces’ testimony.

Another related case, known as the “Kerdasa Massacre,” previously sentenced 183 persons to death of the murder of 11 police personnel with heavy weapons.

Following the dispersal of the pro-Brotherhood sit-ins in 2013 several riots and clashes took place between protesters and security forces.
