The new protests law came into action to strike again in the most devastating way. Today, 7 activists from Alexandria were sentenced to 2 years in prison in addition to paying 50,000 LE each! (Aprox. $6600) in fines. All what they did was protest in front of Alexandria’s criminal court during the retrial of the murderers of Khaled Said.
The murderers who caught the young guy and beaten him up till he died received a 7 years sentence and apparently they though it was a harsh sentence and now they are going on a retrial while Lawyer, activist and one of the few angels left in Egypt, Mahienour El-Massry along with Hassan Mustafa and five others received 2 years in prison and such an insane amount of money to pay just for protesting. For anything’s sake, how is that fair?
Mahienour is a dear friend of mine and I owe her a lot, a lot more than I can think of. She is the kindest person I have ever met in my life. I just can’t write nor talk about how an amazing person she is cause I will never be able to describe it. Anyone who knows her will fall speechless when describing her. FUCK THIS NEW LAW!
