Egypt’s prosecutor has ordered a 15-day detention, pending investigation, of yet another political activist for “spreading false news” on his social media profiles, privately-owned al-Fajr website reports.
Hazem Abdel-Azim is accused of “deliberately spreading false news and statements about the political and economic situation in the country with the aim of disrupting general peace… via different media outlets and his social media profiles”, as well as joining an illegal group aiming to disrupt the constitution.
He was the youth officer in President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s 2014 election campaign, but his recent social media posts have been mostly critical of the government.
Most of the activists arrested recently have been accused of joining an illegal group and spreading false news.
