Egyptian Revolutionary Socialist Mahienour el-Massry has jail sentence reduced

Issue No. 2413

Revolutionary Socialist and lawyer Mahienour el-Massry had her two-year sentence for defying the anti protest law reduced after an appeal last Sunday. She was charged after demonstrating outside the court hearing of the police officers charged with murdering political blogger Khaled Said in 2010.

Her hearing in a separate case on Monday of this week was postponed until 13 October. 

She and other leading activists in Alexandria were accused of attempting to “storm the police station and release detainees” in March 2013. 

They had gone to call for the release of lawyers detained there. Police arrested and beat them up.
