Attorney General receives complaint against Alia al-Mahdi, Karim Amer
The members of the public coalition of the law and Sharia (Islamic law) graduates presented a complaint to Egypt s Attorney General against two young people for publishing naked photos of themselves online.
The case is filed against Alia al-Mahdi, a mass communications student at the American University in Cairo, and Karim Amr. The photos were posted on Mahdi s blog, Memoirs of a Revolutionary.
The coordinator of the coalition, Ahmed Yehia, said the complaint calls to punish Mahdi and Amr under the law as examples, in order to preserve the image of Egypt s January 25 Revolution.
Yehia said the coalition demands to accelerate case against the two, who are accused of inciting immorality, debauchery, and defamation of religion, which are all crimes mentioned in the Egyptian penal code.
