Renowned TV satirist Bassem Youssef arrived at Egypt's High Court on Sunday morning in response to an arrest warrant submitted by the country's top prosecutor.

In evident mockery, Youssef appeared outside the court wearing an outsized version of the hat worn by President Morsi when he received an honorary doctorate from a university in Pakistan in early March.

Every Person Is Accountable For Damaging Other Person's Reputation
No person is immune to the law when he tramples on other people's rights, reputation or property even if he is a media celebrity. He may enjoy laughingly at disparaging remarks on other personalities and get away with it if they are true. However, beware he is answerable if the statements contain damaging untruths. Journalism is about the truth not synonymous to falsehood.
