Egypt's highest court reversed Sunday a 15-year jail sentence handed down by a lower court to a policeman for killing an activist in the street, judicial sources said, overturning a rare sentence against members of security forces.President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, accused by critics of muzzling opponents, had responded to the fury over Sabbagh's killing by referring to her as "my daughter" and "the daughter of Egypt" and promised to bring her killers to justice.Nearly all the 100 policemen tried for killing protesters in the 2011 revolt were acquitted.
