A small protest took place in front of the High Court building in Cairo on Tuesday, organised by members of Tawfik Okasha’s Al-Fara’een television channel and supporters from his hometown. The protesters chanted songs and slogans supporting the controversial television host on the various charges brought against him over the past year.

The protesters said they want the Prosecutor General to rescind the six month sentence handed to Okasha in a case regarding an unpaid divorce settlement between him and his ex-wife Reda Al-Qardawy, but they also support Okasha more generally in all his legal cases.

TV host sent to criminal court for insulting police syndicate | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egypt’s general prosecutor’s office referred on Sunday popular television host Tawfeek Okasha to criminal court for insulting the police syndicate. 

 

The prosecution's spokesman said that the attorney general has ordered the referral of Okasha to criminal court in response to a legal complaint filed by the police syndicate for its defamation on his television program. 

A number of police officers, who are members of the syndicate that is under construction, had come forward with a legal challenge against the TV host for insulting the police officers and their wives on an episode that aired on the satellite channel that he owns.
 

A court had sentenced Okasha to four months in prison in October for insulting Islamist President Mohamed Mursi.
