Egyptian tycoon gets 15 years for murder of singer
An Egyptian real-estate tycoon who murdered Lebanese pop singer Suzanne Tamim had his sentence commuted from the death penalty to 15 years in jail, by the Cairo Appeals Court Tuesday, DPA reported.
Tamim was found dead in her Dubai apartment in July 2008.
Mustafa was a former member of the ruling National Democratic Party's Upper House of Parliament, known as the Shoura Council.
The court also sentenced Mohsen al-Sukkari, a former Egyptian security officer, to 25 years in prison for helping carry out the attack.
