Charges leveled against Kareem are Contempt for religion, Insulting the head of state, Promoting hatred for a religious sect (Islam)!! These charges might carry a 3 year sentence each up to 9 years total prison time!
The ruling has been postponed to 01/25/07 for the defense to study and present its case, and your presence might affect the rulling since the judge was interested when he noticed the number of human rights activists and other bloggers attending as wa7damasrya reports here in her blog.
The Daily Start Egypt Edition presented a coverage to the demonstration held in front of the Egyptian embassy in Washington DC, while Banhawi, and JarelKamar reported on the latest and the previous court hearing.
This site was created to support and follow up the case.
The photo is taken by Banhawi on 01/18/07 while Kareem is being led to the court room in Moharam Bey Court, Alexandria.
