Cairo - MENA
The Public Prosecution issued on Monday a statement on the case which involves two journalists, who were arrested yesterday at the Syndicate of Journalists.
Earlier, an arrest warrant was issued against Amr Badr, editor-in-chief and founder of Yanair (January) news portal and journalist Mahmoud El-Sakka, who works for the same website along with seven others.
The arrest warrant was issued against the two journalists and seven others on April 19, after investigations revealed that they used fake news and used them in incitement through the social networking site of Facebook during celebrations marking Sinai Liberation Day, according to a statement issued by the Prosecutor General's bureau.
Investigations also said that they exploited these demonstrations to clash with police forces and storm public and vital establishments and police stations.
