Ziad El-Aleimy, Hossam Moenes and Hesham Fouad Abdel-Aleem
The Egyptian Public Prosecution renewed on Saturday the imprisonment of two journalists and a former MP for 15 days pending investigations in the case known in the media as the “Hope Plan” cell.
The three defendants are journalists Hossam Moenes and Hesham Fouad Abdel-Aleem in addition to former MP in the 2012 People's Assembly Ziad El-Aleimy.
In June 2019, the Interior Ministry announced the arrest of three among others in light of uncovering a hostile scheme dubbed "Hope Plan".
According to the ministry statement, the scheme was organised by fugitive Muslim Brotherhood leaders in coordination with those who claim to represent civil political forces.
