Bishoy Garas, an Egyptian Christian who was sentenced to six years in prison from September 2012 for offending Islam, was due to have a ruling in favour of his acquittal on 14 November.
However, the judge adjourned the case until 13 February 2016, owing to ‘the issue’s sensitivity’. The charges, relating to Facebook posts, were found on a fake Facebook page opened in his name. Garas was sentenced, despite new claims by his friends of a named hacker, as well as cyber investigation reports attesting his innocence.
