The interrogation was done by the defence team members, the court and the prosecution.
In the same context, the security forces prevented Dr. Ammar Qurabi, the envoy of the Arab Organization for Human Rights and envoy of the UN High Commission for Human Rights, from entering the court although he is international observer who came to monitor the trial measures. They claimed that Qurabi must have an approval from the military intelligence.
