Amnesty and concession or pressure and compulsion, this is how the pioneers of social networking sites in Egypt argued, after the families of the victims of a traffic accident announced reconciliation with the family of the accused - the son of a famous businessman - who killed 4 students - 3 of them children - and caused a sensation.
While a number of social media pioneers announced their anger at the families’ reconciliation - especially after their long affirmation of their refusal to reconcile and their constant demand for just retribution and the return of rights to their children - another group considered that the continuation of the feud will not bring back the dead, praising the position of families and their acceptance of reconciliation with blood money.
The Giza Criminal Court decided, on Saturday, to reserve the case for the next session of June 4, in the case in which Karim, son of businessman Mohamed El-Hawary, is accused of mistakenly killing 4 students in a collision, possessing and using narcotics, and speeding.
Behind the scenes of reconciliation
During his pleading, Mohamed Hammouda, the lawyer for the accused, Karim El-Hawary, said that the families of the victims understood the nature of what happened and gave up the case, adding - according to what Al-Ahram newspaper reported (governmental) - that the families of the victims considered Karim as their son, especially after he suffered a permanent disability and was one of the victims of the accident.
"Cairo 24" website revealed the scenes of the families' sessions with the businessman, the father of the accused, which began early on the father's side with the advice of a senior lawyer, as the father sought throughout the previous period to win the affection of family members, and pushed them to give up the case.
According to the website, the defense team confirmed that reconciliation will be the most important way out for the son of the businessman, and if he succeeds, the punishment will be reduced, and indeed he succeeded in this matter with 3 of the families of the victims, but the matter was disrupted after the rejection of the family of a young man from the victims, so that the defense began to convince them to reconcile from order to end the case.
The website claimed that the families of the three victims received sums of money that amounted to more than two million Egyptian pounds for each family, while the last family alone received 6 million pounds, while the family’s lawyer said that the reconciliation took place without his knowledge, and the family insisted on refusing, according to what he said. .
On the other hand, the families of the victims did not announce the details of the reconciliation, and Omar's father - one of the victims of the accident - told the "Al-Youm Al-Sabaa" website after relinquishing the lawsuit that he did not want to talk about that issue again, while Jaber Hassanein - who is the uncle of one of the victims - told Al-Watan newspaper. The family accepted the reconciliation amicably after the intervention of a number of clergymen in Al-Azhar.
Did the families of the victims take most of the blood money ah?
They did it.
Do you know their circumstances to judge them?!
.. do not judge them .. they can be upset with them and against them and the distorted values that this kind of concessions perpetuate

Social media controversy
The state of anger was the most prevalent among the pioneers of the communication sites in their comment on the incident, and the accused and the families of the victims shared their share of this anger, as some blamed the families, especially after their repeated assertion of their refusal to reconcile with the killer and their constant demand for just retribution and the return of rights to their children whom they considered victims "The indiscretion of a rich young man."
Others expressed their anger at the loss of the right of the children killed by pressure from the money of the dead man and his father, according to their claim, denouncing that whoever has the money can do what he wants and then pressure the victims to reconcile. the past.
On the other hand, others demanded not to put pressure on the families of the victims, noting that they are more knowledgeable in the details and more able to make the right decision, and what happened with the loss of their children in the accident is sufficient for them.
Tweeters considered that reconciliation is a good thing, and there is no blame on those who reconcile even if they take the money, citing the ruling on paying the blood money approved by Islamic Sharia.
The families of the victims of the #Sheikh_Zayed accident abandoned the case after the reconciliation, so that the trial of #Karim_Al-Hawari for the felony of drug, intoxicant and driving remains under its influence!

#Karim_Al-Hawari There is no insulting
the families of the victims because you cannot be more hurt than them
. It is clear that he would have come out of it in one way or another and by the law that is full of loopholes
and therefore instead of completely wasting the right of their children, sure they accepted the blood money and I think that they will make ongoing alms on their souls, no
cutting in people 💔

What after reconciliation?
In this context, Counselor Yahya Qadri, the cassation lawyer, revealed the future of the trial in the case of Karim Al-Hawari after the families of the victims of the accident reconciled, saying that in cases of manslaughter, if there are multiple victims as a result of the killing, the penalty is increased to 10 years.
Qadri added - during a telephone interview on the “Al-Hekaya” program, broadcast on MBC Egypt, that reconciliation does not lead to a reduction or termination of punishment, and compensation is sufficient, because Egyptian law does not take this matter into account, explaining that reconciliation may have an effect by not being severely harsh. Punishment if purified and reconciled the guardian of blood.
The Egyptian lawyer explained that there will be a penalty for manslaughter, but it will not be severe, and there is no effect on other accusations, whether drug use or any other accusations presented in court.

It is noteworthy that the accident occurred last December, as Karim Al-Hawari - whose father owns a famous chain of stores in Cairo and Giza - was driving his car at dawn at great speed when he collided with a car from behind, which led to the death of 4 students on the spot, while the son of The businessman from death and suffered several injuries.

The accident brought to mind another traffic accident that occurred early last year, the hero of which was a young man named Haitham, son of businessman Kamel Abu Ali, who owns a chain of hotels and tourist resorts. It led to the death of a girl working as an engineer and the injury of the driver.
The case raised the Egyptian street at the time, but after months of trial procedures, the court only punished Haitham with one year in prison with a suspended sentence and a fine of one million pounds in the case of the death of engineer Mai Iskandar in Hurghada, which provoked angry reactions at the time.Keywords:
