An appeal court in Alexandria has upheld the two-year jail terms handed to four activists for protesting without a permit during the Khaled Said retrial.

Loai Mohamed Abdel-Rahman, Omar Abdel-Aziz Hussein, Islam Mohamed Ahmed and Nasser Abul-Hamed Ibrahim were sentenced to two years in jail and a LE50,000 fine for organising an unauthorised protest, blocking the road, assaulting a police officer and destroying a police vehicle on 2 December.

The protests took place outside the retrial of two policemen accused of killing Khaled Said, whose death helped spark the January 2011 uprising.

This is another prosecution of non-Islamist activists under the controversial protest law.

On 22 December 2013, a Cairo criminal court sentenced April 6 Youth Movement founders Ahmed Maher and Mohamed Adel, and independent activist Ahmed Douma to three years in jail and a LE50,000 fine for organising an unauthorised protest and attacking security forces outside the Abdeen court in November.
