Khaled Said's Mother At Alexandria Appeal Court - YOUM7 (Archive)

CAIRO:  Alexandria Criminal court will hold the first hearing of a case filed by the family of Khlaed Said, whose 2010 death at the hands of policemen sparked protests leading up to the January 25 Revolution in 2011.

Two days ago, the family sought reparation in a lawsuit against the Ministry of Interior, demanding 5 billion EGP (around $655,127) in compensation after two police officers were convicted of killing Said.

On March 4, Court of Cassation upheld a 10-year prison term handed down to the convicts.

Said was killed in June 2010 by two policemen of the Sidi Gaber police station, Mohamed Salah and Awad Ismail, who were both found guilty of manslaughter.
