Thousands of Egyptian lawyers across Egypt will stage a five-hour sit-in today in
front of courthouses to express solidarity with their colleagues Ehab
Saee Eddin and Mustafa Fattouh, convicted of assaulting the district
attorney in Tanta earlier this month
Both men were handed five-year prison sentences on 9 June, which sparked a nation-wide dispute between Egyptian lawyers, on the one hand, and judges and prosecutors on the other.
Abu Kreisha urged Hamdi Khalifa, the head of the Lawyers Syndicate, and Omar Hareedi, the syndicate treasurer, to hand the case over to another team of lawyers, arguing that "the defense team for the two lawyers was poor."
