Hard time : Egyptian Lawyer given 10 years for Facebook post.

in BreakingNews @en by

An Egyptian lawyer has been sentenced to 10 years in prison over a Facebook post “insulting the president” and “inciting terrorism”. Mohammed Ramadan will also have to serve five years under house arrest following his jail sentence, and be banned from social media during that time. However bases of the condemnations are unclear, its based on a 2015 law arguing that’s a crime to use social media to “harm unity” and “incite violence”. Ramadan wasn’t present during the trial, for health reason, which had not been made public. This sentence is a “blatant assault to freedom” according to Amnesty International.
