Al Jazeera Live Egypt TV channel filed an appeal on Saturday against the Administrative Court’s ruling to ban its broadcasting.
The ban came due to the channel’s “not abiding by supposed neutrality”, said state-owned Al-Ahram. Al Jazeera filed the appeal in front of the Supreme Administrative Court.
On 3 September, the Administrative Court banned Al Jazeera Live Egypt’s broadcasting for the third time, and retracted its licence from Nile Sat.
Lawyer Mamdouh Tamam filed a lawsuit against the channel, saying the channel has been dishonest.
He added that “it betrayed the media’s ethical code, that it broadcasted lies after the people’s revolution against the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood on 30 June 2013, portraying the revolution as lies and plays directed by filmmakers, and that the crowds that came out that day were sparse and not representative of the Egyptian people, and that what happened was not a popular revolution”.
