press release

the Beba Misdemeanor Court, at Beni Suef governorate, deferred today the trial of the author "Karam Saber" till 22 October hearing. The decision came during the hearing of considering the challenge on the unfair judgment issued against the author and human right activist "Karam Saber" in May 2013, as he was given five years sentence in abscenia. The case against the author was moved by the Public Prosecution after some complainants accused him of the contempt of religions on the background of the Hesba cases. The complainants demand prosecuting the author because of writing and publishing the story book titled "Where is Allah".
