The police arrested a famous Egyptian human rights activist Khalid Ali, who in 2012 took part in the presidential elections. 45-year-old lawyer is suspected of insulting morality.
Ali, the leader of the Party for bread and freedom, became the eighth member of the leadership of this movement, arrested by the authorities since the beginning of April. Among the charges the use of social networks for subversive purposes and insulting the President.
According to human rights activists, the repression against the party began after Ali expressed readiness to participate in the presidential elections to be held in 2018. The interior Ministry denies the allegations politically motivated cases.
Note that the head of the Party for bread and freedom was one of the leaders of the fight against transmission of Saudi Arabia Islands, located in the Tiran Strait. Failure to perform the agreement caused a crisis in relations between the two countries.
