The Mansoura North Prosecution unit referred on Friday a defendant accused of killing both of his children to the Criminal Court.
The detained man was arrested days after the Eid Al-Adha. At first, media outlets reported contradicting narratives of the father’s testimonies.
The prosecution cited documents and videos as evidence allegedly showing the defendant committing the crime. The prosecution also included the confession of the defendant saying that he committed the murder.
The detained man confessed in a video published by the Ministry of Interior, that he killed his two children by throwing them into the Nile.
Last week, the Police forces dispersed a gathering of dozens of individuals in the city of Met Al-Salsel in Daqahlia who protested legal procedures against the defendant. Police forces used tear gas to disperse the gathering.
The police arrested several people from the gathering and referred them to the prosecution for further investigation.
