Lawyer Khaled Ali - File photo
CAIRO – 3 January 2018: The Dokki court of misdemeanors adjourned to March 7 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.
