Khaled Hamza ordered to be released by State Security prosecution

The New Cairo State Security prosecution has ordered journalist and editor in Chief of the English language website to be released. This hopefully means that both Khaled Hamza and Abdul-Jalil al Sharnouby, who holds the same position with the Arabic language website and was freed on bail four days ago , could resume their respective work soon.

Khaled Hamza was arrested on February 20th this year.

This comes just hours after the harsh verdicts of 25 leading Muslim Brothers, at the end of a yearlong military trial at Hikestep.

UPDATE: Khaled Hamza has been released.
