Egypt: Activist Ahmed Douma jailed for 15 years at retrial

The Cairo Criminal Court sentenced political activist and blogger Ahmed Douma to 15 years in prison, after a retrial on Wednesday. Family and friends weeped as the judgement was read out. Douma was also fined six million Egyptian Pounds ($335,000; €290.000) over his role in a Cairo protest in December 2011, in which a science academy was set on fire. He appealed a 25-year sentence he was... Еще handed in 2015 for violating a law which banned unauthorised protests. It was upheld on appeal in July 2017, but was overturned by the Court of Cassation, which ordered the subsequent retrial.
