Hassan Ibrahim (1917 - 1990) was an Egyptian Air Force officer and one of the founders of the Free Officers movement.

Early life and education

Ibrahim was born in 1917. He was a graduate of the Air Force Academy in Egypt.


In 1952, Ibrahim served as an Air Force group captain. He was one of the three judges, who tried the members of the Brotherhood after their attempted assassination attack against then president Gamal Abdel Nasser in 1954. The other three judges were Anwar Sadat and Abdel Latif Boghdadi. The same year he was among the officers who arrested Mohammed Naguib. Ibrahim was also appointed minister for presidential affairs in 1954. Two years later, in 1956, Ibrahim became the head of the Egyptian economy agency. After dealing with business for a while, in February 1964, he was appointed as one of seven vice presidents of Nasser. Ibrahim resigned from office in 1966 due to Nasser's request to end his relationship with a woman, and continued business activities.

Free Officers Movement

Ibrahim was among five military officers who formed the first cell of the Free Officers movement in July or September 1949. Although it is argued that Ibrahim along with other officers was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood's special unit from 1944 to 1945, there is another report, stating that Ibrahim was part of the group called Young Egypt. In addition, Ibrahim was one of the nine-member leadership group of the Free Officers movement. The movement led the 1952 Revolution. Then Ibrahim became a member of the 14-member Revolution Command Council (RCC) that was charged with the running of Egypt following the success of the revolution.


Ibrahim died in 1990.
