Hearing collapses in Egypt trial of 494, including Irish teen

A mass trial hearing for almost 500 people collapsed this morning in Cairo, with the judge failing to attend and defendants unable to enter a court packed with masked pro-Government supporters.

Reports from the makeshift courtroom in Tora prison suggest that there was no judge in attendance throughout, and the room was full of supporters of the Government – many wearing masks in an apparent attempt to intimidate defence lawyers. The families of the 494 defendants were reportedly barred from entering the room, while the prisoners themselves were not called in.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Judge Kangaroo, report to the court room. Judge Kangaroo, report to the court room."
