1 Egyptian, 2 Israelis sentenced to life for spying
Court - YOUM7

CAIRO: One Egyptian and two Israelis were given life sentences Wednesday on charges of espionage, in the criminal court of North Sinai, Youm 7 reported.

A judicial source told Youm 7 that the Arish court handed the sentence to the Egyptian, who was present, while the two Israelis were tried in absentia.

In Egypt’s legal system, a life sentence generally means a prison term of 25 years.

The case date goes back to August 2011, when both Israeli defendants allegedly recruited their Egyptian co-defendant for transmitting information regarding field operations in the Sinai.
