Egypt: Three extremists join list of suspects in Pakistan embassy bombing
Egypt, Judicial, 11/20/1998
The Supreme Security Court in Cairo on Wednesday completed investigations with two extremists Egypt delivered during October from South Africa and placed in custody together with a third detainee from South Africa.
The three men will be presented before the court on Sunday.
Well-informed Egyptian sources said the three men were put on the same list in case number 718 on the explosion of the Egyptian embassy in Pakistan in 1995. The court accused the two, Jamal Shueib and Eid Abdul Samee Abdulsamee, of joining a secret organization aiming at toppling the regime by means of force, receiving military training in foreign countries, setting up a base for organizing al-Jihad in Africa as a starting point to carry out terrorist acts as well transferring funds and instructions from leaders in the 'organization' who are residents in Afghanistan to elements inside Egypt and other countries.
The investigation session was attended by the lawyers Muntasir al-Zayyat and Mahmoud Abdul Shafi. The two lawyers appealed to free the third convict, Tareq Ali Mursi, and to exclude him from the case on the grounds that available investigation papers have not proved that three men met each other when they were in South Africa.
But the court refused the appeal and decided to hold the convict in custody until investigations are completed.
