 Many political opposition members and activists rallied in front of the courthouse uniting in solidarity against police brutality in Egypt .

A huge crowd of lawyers and media assembled in front of the courthouse prompting officials to prevent their entry into the courtroom.

The chief of defense team, Mr. Raafat Nawar, called on witnesses to testify during the hearing. He also demanded to upgrade the charges from cruelty to murder. The Civil rights plaintiff called to bring in the chief medical examiner, forensic doctor, assistant ambulance practitioner, driver and morgue official to testify as unbiased witnesses.

Hafez Abu Seada, secretary-general of the Cairo-based Egyptian Organization for Human Rights attended as a representative of the victim's family and civil claimants. He requested the addition of the text of the Convention against Torture to the case file, justifying that it could help them not to abide to the law if deemed unjust.

In a related context Police officers held their own silent protest in front of the courthouse raising banners and signs accusing young activists of being traitors asserting that policemen only did what was best for the country.
