Courts fines Ahmed Douma for insults against Morsi
Published in Daily News Egypt on 30 - 11 - 2013

Activist and blogger Ahmed Douma has been fined EGP 20,000 by a misdemeanour court in Tanta after being found guilty of insulting former President Mohamed Morsi, charges stemming back to the deposed president's time in office.
Douma, who professes his innocence, confirmed the sentence on his Twitter account, adding that he had to decide between paying the fine or spending three months in jail.
On 3 June a New Cairo court sentenced Douma to six months in jail for insulting Morsi and describing him as a "killer" in televised comments. Douma appealed, and his sentenced was suspended until an appeals court could make a ruling.
In a separate case earlier this summer, Douma, alongside five other political activists, was accused of inciting violence and causing clashes in front of the Muslim Brotherhood's headquarters in Moqattam in March. He was released without bail after the first session of his case on charges of incitement 6 July.
