Egypt releases activist Mahienour El-Masry, two journalists after pre-trial detention
Published in Ahram Online on 18 - 07 - 2021

Egypt's Public Prosecution ordered on Sunday the release of activist Mahienour El-Masry, and journalists, Motaz Wadnan and Mostafa El-Asar, pending investigation into charges of publishing false news, a statement said.
Legal sources said the release of the three came after it was confirmed that they were not charged in other cases, adding that "they have arrived their homes."
El-Masry, a human rights lawyer and activist who was arrested in September 2019, and El-Asar and Wadnan, who were both detained in 2018, have been accused of participating with a terrorist group in achieving its goals by publishing and broadcasting false news and statements on social media, the statement said.
Security forces had detained the three under an arrest order issued by the Public Prosecution for interrogation in the charges filed against them, the statement noted.
Their Sunday's release came less than 24 hours after the release of journalist Gamal El-Gamal, politician Abdel-Nasser Ismail and activist Esraa Abdel-Fattah who were in pre-trial detention over charges that include joining a terrorist group.
