Nasr City Misdemeanors Court sentenced television presenter Ahmed Moussa to six months’ imprisonment with hard labour on an EGP 5,000 bail.

He was charged for insulting a lawyer on Wednesday.

Moussa was also ordered to pay a fine of EGP 10,000 and another EGP 10,000 as compensation to Tarek al-Awady, the lawyer of the Zamalek Sporting Club’s Ultras fan group Ultras White Knights.

Moussa, who hosts a programme on Sada Al-Balad television channel, was charged with spreading false news and defaming Al-Awady.

Moussa described Al-Awady on air as a “fugitive”, accusing him of breaking into a police station, stealing a police vehicle and torching it in September.
