Prosecutor General Talat Abdallah will investigate a report accusing
Al-Tahrir newspaper Editor-in-Chief Ibrahim Eissa of defaming Islam and
ridiculing the Quran and Sharia.

The complaint was filed by a lawyer, who also handed over videos of Issa
allegedly mocking Islam and its rituals on his satellite show.

Another video allegedly shows Issa sarcastically saying that if someone
pickpockets a wallet their hand will be cut according to Sharia, but if they
steal LE2 billion from the bank their hand won’t be cut off, while the
audience laughs and claps. The complaint claims that his comments ridicule
Sharia.

Eissa is one of the most prominent journalists opposing President Mohamed
Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood. He had been sentenced to jail in the era
of former President Hosni Mubarak on charges of spreading false news about
his health, but Mubarak issued a presidential pardon for him
