Egypt court upholds sentence for activists
(04-07 18:55)

An Egyptian court upheld Monday jailing three activists to three years in prison for organizing protests without permission, state-run Ahram newspaper reported on its website.
Ahmed Maher, founder of April 6 Movement, Mohamed Adel, a senior member of the movement, and prominent government critic Ahmed Douma were also fined 50,000 Egyptian pounds, said the website.
The appeal was rejected for the three activists who participated in spearheading the massive protests that ousted President Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
The controversial law requires protesters to obtain an approval from the government before staging their protests. --Xinhua
