Violences au soccer en Égypte: 38 arrestations

Violences au soccer en Égypte: 38 arrestations | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Des policiers ont procédé jeudi à l’arrestation de 38 membres d’un fervent groupe de supporters d’un club de soccer, selon des avocats égyptiens. Les prévenus feront face à des accusations d’avoir fait partie d’une organisation illégale, d’avoir tenté d’incendier un palais de justice et d’avoir injurié des policiers.

Les accusations déposées jeudi sont les premières qui visent les membres des Ultras. Ceux-ci sont devenus des joueurs importants dans la tumultueuse transition politique en Égypte, et les tensions les opposant aux forces policières sont notoires.

L’avocat Ahmed Ezzat a précisé que les suspects, parmi lesquels se trouvent 15 mineurs, ont été épinglés dans la province de Menoufia.

Egypt: 38 soccer fans charged with violence

Egypt: 38 soccer fans charged with violence | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egyptian prosecutors have charged 38 members of a die-hard soccer fan club with belonging to an illegal group and other offenses, one of the first signs of a crackdown on the powerful sports organizations that have been at the forefront of the country's protest movement, lawyers said Thursday.

Soccer fans, known as Ultras, became a major political force during the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak in 2011 and the subsequent tumultuous transition. They are known for their longstanding animosity with the police.

The charge of belonging to an illegal group appears to be an attempt to pressure the powerful Ultras network, one of the most organized movements in Egypt after the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood. But a crackdown could also backfire, as Ultras are some of the country's most active protesters and regularly clash with police.

Ahmed Ezzat, a rights lawyer who is looking into the Ultras case, said the 38 Ultras Devils were arrested Wednesday during a protest in the Nile Delta city of Shebeen al-Kom. They were also charged with attempting to set fire to a provincial court house and insulting police officers.
