Egypt: 3 activists on trial for protesting without permit

Published: 12.05.13, 12:04 / Israel News

Egypt's public prosecutor referred three political activists to trial on Thursday on charges including protesting without permission, a judicial source said. It was the first case of activists being charged under the provisions of a new law criticized for stifling the right to protest.

 

The activists charged on Thursday include Ahmed Maher, founder of the April 6 movement that helped ignite the 2011 uprising against former President Hosni Mubarak, and Ahmed Douma, another prominent dissident. (Reuters)
