3 years for drawing Mickey Mouse ears on Sisi

An Egyptian Facebook user was charged with “attempting to overthrow the regime” in a military court last week, and sentenced to three years for drawing Mickey Mouse ears on President Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi.

Social media users took to twitter to express solidarity and outrage with Nohan, sharing the image and mocking the sentence under the hashtag Freedom for Amr Nohan (#الحرية_لعمرو_نوهان).

Egypt currently holds over 42,000 political prisoners since the military ousted elected President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
