Do you remember the ten cases I highlighted to mark the 14 March International Day of Action to Defend Blasphemers and Apostates? One of them was that of the famous Egyptian comedian, Adel Imam.
Well a court has upheld his conviction for ‘offending Islam’.
There’s much that I can say about this but I’ll let author Alaa al-Aswany do the talking.
He says: the court ruling sets Egypt back to the “darkness of the Middle Ages” and that this is “an unimaginable crime of principle”.
How very true.
