Cairo criminal court set September 20 to issue its final verdict over the case known publicly as “Kief café”.
Earlier، Heliopolis Misdemeanors Court sentenced the owner، the manager of Keif café in Heliopolis and another person، to two years in jail for holding a person inside the café.
Last February، a young man، Mahmoud Bayoumi، was stabbed to death following a violent row with workers at the cafe، after watching the final African Cup of Nations match between Egypt and Cameron.
The brawl between the two sides erupted after Bayoumi objected the way the waiters were asking the customers to pay bills as they locked the gate of the café while the customers were inside and asked them don’t leave until paying the bill.
When Bayoumi objected، slamming the conduct as an act of thuggery،، he was hit by a chair and stabbed to death، an eyewitness said.
Prosecutors ordered the detention of a number of the workers at the café، and the owner of the café، while the café was ordered to be closed.
