Egypt’s El-Shahat Receives One-Year Suspended Prison Sentence and Five-Year Playing Ban for Assaulting Moroccan Mohamed Chibi

The Egyptian Football Federation (FEF) disciplinary committee gave the attacking midfielder Hussein Ali El Shahat of Al Ahly a one-year suspended prison sentence, suspension from athletic activities for five years, and a fine of 100,000 Egyptian pounds (≈21,017 MAD), following his assault on Moroccan international Mohamed Chibi, a Pyramids Club player.

The FEF also suspended Chibi for six matches for suing the other player and disregarding the disciplinary body.

Mohamed Chibi had filed a complaint against El-Shahat for assault, insults, slander, insults, and intimidation–in addition to threats of physical injury–which resulted in psychological and physical damage following the publication of videos documenting the incident of his assault on social networks.

According to the Egyptian press, El-Shahat is considering an appeal. Al Ahly’s club is also expected to intervene by turning to international sporting bodies to defend its player and reduce his sentence.

The Pyramids FC administration had previously lodged an official complaint with the Disciplinary Committee of the FEF and the administration of the League of Professional Clubs against the Al Ahly player, based on video evidence of the gesture.

The Egyptian Pro League suspended Hussein El Shahat for two matches and fined him 20,000 Egyptian pounds (≈4,203 MAD) as a penalty.
