Ahram Online, Monday 15 Aug 2011

Another activist called to court, without being given reasons

Kifaya member, Maha Abu-Bakr, has been summoned to appear in front of the military prosecution on Monday. Abu-Bakr says the reason remains unknown. 

April 6 activist, Asmaa Mahfouz, was summoned by the military on Sunday facing accusations of insulting military council members and inciting violence against the military. Mahfouz was released on a bail of EGP 20,000.

Several others were summoned before the military but without consequences.  Mahfouz was the first to receive accusations and to pay a bail.

Others arrested from demonstrations or sit-ins have, like Mahfouz, faced military trials and some have received prison sentences.
