Court has accepted Al-Ahly supporters’ appeal on their sentence

Al-Amereya II Misdemeanor Court has accepted the appeal on the desission in absentia of one year imprisonment with labour and a 300 EGP fine for the defendants Amr Mohammed Lamisy, Ahmed Mamdouh Al-Mashd and Hussain Mohamed Abd-Alkader, in lawsuit number 1548/2017. The sentence has been reduced to one-year suspended sentence.
Prosecution had charged the defendant with possessing and wearing t-shirts with abusive language which incites riot – “74 martyr” and “viva martyrs”.
On another note, Amereya II Misdemeanor Court of Appeal has upholded the first degree decision on Ayman Ayman Mohamed and Eslam Ahmed Hussain, of 500 Egp fine, in lawsuit 3716/2018. The defendants are charged with “attempting of entering the stadium without permission”.

Police forces had arrested the defendants at Burj Al-Arab stadium in last September, after Al-Ahly’s match with Al-Taragy Al-Tunsy.
