Egypt executes a “monk” who killed a “priest”

Previously

Today (Sunday), the Egyptian Ministry of Interior carried out the death sentence against the monk Wael Saad, known as “Isaiah Al-Maqari,” for the murder of Anba Epiphanius, head of the monastery of Abu Makar, in 2018.
The facts of the case date back to 2018, when the head of Deir Abu Makar, in Wadi al-Natrun, north of the Egyptian capital, was found murdered inside the monastery, and the case sparked a great controversy at the time among church circles who considered the incident a precedent of its kind.
The security forces arrested two suspects, and one of them confessed during the investigations to kill the Pope, as a result of previous differences between them, while the second assisted him.
The Court of Cassation had upheld the death sentence issued by the Damanhour Criminal Court against the monk, and reduced the sentence on another monk, “Faltawas al-Maqari,” from execution to life imprisonment.
