Today, Alexandria criminal court, presided over by Judge Wahid Sabri, confirmed the death sentence on the murderer of the Coptic priest Arsanios Wadid in Alexandria after two sessions. 

The case started on April 7 when the accused stabbed father Arsanios on Alexandria’s seafront promenade while accompanying a group of young parishioners. The residents in the area and a bus driver caught the murderer and handed him over to the police, and they quickly took the priest to the hospital but unfortunately, he died from his wounds.

Only minutes after, the Egyptian prosecution opened an investigation into the murder of the Coptic priest. After questioning the accused murderer, Nehru Abdel Moneim Tawfiq, it was revealed that he stabbed him with premeditation and surveillance, and that he did not suffer from any mental illness. Furthermore, the Egyptian prosecution found that the accused was a member of a terrorist group.

And today, only 66 days after the case’s start, the Alexandria criminal court confirmed the death sentence on the murderer of the Coptic priest.

Arsanios Wadid, 56, was the Priest of the Church of the Virgin Mary and Mar Boulos in the Karmouz neighborhood of the Meharam Bek district, Alexandria, Egypt.

All our condolences to the Coptic priest Arsanios Wadid’s family and friends. May his soul rest in peace
