North Banha Criminal Court (Second Circuit) refused the Prosecution appeal against the release of the student Ahmed Saeed Ahmed Saad al-Sawaf pending investigations in Case No. 8297 of 2023 (Shebin el-Qanater Administrative) on charges of joining a terrorist group while knowing its purposes.

On 11 February 2024, the Prosecution filed an appeal against a decision by the Six Circuit to release Ahmed, which was issued on the same day. 

The prosecution started investigating Al-Sawaf’s case in the October 8, 2023 session. It challenged him with investigations only without showing him any evidence to support the validity of those investigations.

Al-Sawaf served a ten-year aggravated prison sentence in implementing a ruling against him in Case No. 8615 of 2013, the Azbakeya felonies, known in the media as the Al-Fath Mosque incidents.

On August 16, 2023, while completing his release procedures, Al-Sawaf was unlawfully re-detained in a location unknown to his family and lawyer until he was presented to the prosecution, pending the new case on October 8.

Al-Sawaf was Dismissed from his university due to his imprisonment, while his lawyers took steps to have him return.
