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.

Khaled Said
It was not very smart of police terrorists to kill Khaled Said in the first place. Mubarak will never be vindicated.
