CAIRO: An Alexandria misdemeanor court sentenced 10 activists, politicians and lawyers, including Mahienour al-Masry, to two years in prison Monday. They will not serve the term if they pay 5,000 EGP each ($655,) Youm7 reported.

The defendants are charged with assaulting police officers, raiding and sabotaging the Raml police station in the Mediterranean city, and intimidating citizens in a case that dates back to March 2013.

Three activists were being interrogated inside the police station on charges of torching a Muslim Brotherhood office, while former President Mohamed Morsi was still in power.

Other activists and lawyers protested outside the station after a lawyer was allegedly assaulted by the police and prevented from attending the investigations with the defendants, according to Yanayer News.

Masry was previously jailed for breaking the 2013 protest law in another lawsuit, but she was released after the Alexandria Court of Appeals annulled her verdict.
