Cairo’s Court of Misdemeanors condemned Yahya Hussein Abdel Hadi, prime supporter of the Civil Democratic Movement, to four years in jail, for dispersing bogus news, his attorney, Khaled Ali said.
The arraignment contended that Abdel Hadi had “intentionally scattered misleading news inside and outside” Egypt and requested he is rebuffed.
Abdel Hadi’s legal counselor said the case is connected with an article composed and distributed by Abdel Hadi, taking note of that the case was researched in 2018 by the Nasr City Prosecution, and his client was delivered on bail.
Ali added that Abdul Hadi has been detained for forthcoming examinations and spent over two years in pretrial confinement.
The previous decision can be bespoke to a higher court.
In January 2019, specialists captured Abdel Hadi in front of a decision on questionable sacred revisions that drawn out President Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi’s second four-year term to six years and permitted him to run for an additional six-year term after its decision.
