The trial of Al-Jazeera journalist Abdallah El-Shamy was postponed Saturday for another 45 days.
"After throwing out media and arguing with defendants, judge cancels today's hearing for mass trial including @abdallahelshamy. 45 more days" his brother Mosaab El-Shamy said on Twitter.
Abdallah has been detained since August when security forces violently dispersed sit-ins supporting ousted president Mohamed Morsi. He is being tried with 312 others.
Head of the Press Syndicate Diaa Rashwan sent a request to Prosecutor-General Hisham Barakat last week calling for the release of El-Shamy.
El-Shamy told reporters Saturday he has lost 35 kilos on hunger strike and that he is detained in a small cell with 15 other detainees where water is cut 12 hours a day.
Also Saturday, Cairo Criminal Court adjourned the trial of 20 other Al-Jazeera journalists to 15 May without granting them bail.
The two trials coincided with World Press Freedom Day.
