Galal El-Behairy’s sentence to be announced in Military Court on May 16

With no forewarning, the Egyptian Military Court let it be known that Galal El-Behairy will be sentenced on May 9. This may be more threatening to his life and well-being than the parallel civilian case. A statement by human rights organizations, diplomats and artists is in preparation.
