Egypt court jails 50 policemen over strike

WEB DESK

An Egyptian court has jailed 50 policemen for three years after convicting them on charges related to a strike earlier this year. State media reported the low-ranking policemen were also fined 330 US dollar by the South Sinai court.  It reported the policemen had gone on strike in January to protest reduced holidays and allegedly threatened violence against superior officers.

Egyptian policemen held several demonstrations and strikes after the 2011 overthrow of president Hosni Mubarak. The authorities have shown little tolerance for protests since the army toppled Mubarak’s Islamist successor Mohamed Morsi in 2013, unleashing a bloody crackdown on his followers and a deadly jihadist insurgency in the Sinai Peninsula.
