Detention of “Ahmed El-Toukhy” for 15 days pending investigations

19 June 2021

The Supreme State Security Prosecutions decided yesterday June 19, 2021, to detain “Ahmed El-Toukhy” for 15 days pending Case No. 955 of 2020 Supreme State Security.

He was charged with joining a terrorist group, spreading false news and statements that could disturb public security and order, using a social media account “Facebook” aiming to spread the false news and statements.

It should be noted that he had a release order from the Criminal Court on March 21, 2021, pending Case No. 532 of 2021 Shibin Al Qanater misdemeanor, but that order wasn’t implemented, and he was unjustly detained in an unknown place for his family and lawyers until he was presented before the prosecution yesterday.
