CAIRO – 8 November 2017: The Dokki court of misdemeanors adjourned to January 3 an appeal filed by lawyer Khaled Ali against a three month jail sentence issued against him.

On September 25, the court sentenced Ali to three months in jail over charges of waving with an indecent hand gesture during a protest over the handover of Tiran and Sanafir islands to Saudi Arabia.

Ali's act came after a judicial ruling by the Supreme Administrative Court in January in the islands case.

Ali will have to pay 1,000 pounds on bail as part of the sentence.
