He was arrested from his home on October 13, 2019. The next day, Al-Khateeb was brought before the State Security Prosecution to face charges of joining a terrorist group and publishing false news, in the lawsuit No. 488/2019 State Security. Al-Khatib’s arrest is likely because of a report published by the Associated Press on the arrest of British students, who are in Egypt for academic purposes, coinciding with the authorities’ security measures to suppress demonstrations, the Egyptian contractor Mohamed Ali called for, against Al-Sisi’s regime.
