The Criminal Court in Mansoura has asked the Egyptian Parliament to amend the Penal Code. The court’s view is that as part of preventing frequent femicides, live telecast of executions should be ensured as a warning. In a letter to Parliament, the court said that the punishment for those who treat innocent girls as playthings should be an example and those who think this way about women should be scared. By doing this, the objective of preventing the killing of women can be achieved. The court also stated that they want the government and private TV channels to telecast the execution of Nayera’s killer live. The incident also sparked a debate over the death penalty in Egypt.
