Dozens of political activists staged a protest outside Alexandria's Court of Appeals on Saturday morning, during the hearing session for an appeal to free an Egyptian imprisoned activist, demanding the immediate release of all detained activists.
The protesters carried banners with pictures of the 30-year-old activist, Hassan Mostafa, chanting for his freedom.
The court decided on Saturday, to postpone the appeal session for the verdict imprisoning the marketing manager to May 4.
An Alexandria court had issued a verdict sentencing the Mostafa to two years of imprisonment on charges of inciting violence and assaulting a member of the judiciary.
Mostafa appealed the verdict; only the court adjourned the session that was scheduled for today as the prosecutor, Ahmed Darwish, who accused Mostafa of assaulting him, did not attend the hearing.
Mostafa's lawyer demanded the reexamination of the witnesses, who supported the prosecutor's complaint against hassan, claiming that Mostafa had long hair, which contradicts Mostafa's bald head.
The protesters decided to march to Mostafa's home after the session was postponed.
