Egypt to Block Youtube for a Month
Last Saturday, Egypt‘s High Administrative Court issued a verdict to ban Youtube in Egypt for a month!
The ban comes after 6 years after the release of “Innocence of Muslims“, a movie that is considering insulting to Islam, Prophet Mohamed and Muslims.
The case dates back to September when lawyer Mohamed Salem filed a lawsuit before the administrative judiciary against Egypt’s prime minister, minister of communications and the head of the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA), demanding a block on the video-streaming website YouTube for its broadcasting of a film that Salem deemed insulting to Muslims and the Prophet.
The verdict is irrevocable, it obliges Egypt‘s Prime Minister, Communication Minister, the head of The National Communications Council, to make arrangements to stop access to YouTube from Egypt immediately, for the duration of a month, as well as removing all hyperlinks of the insulting movie.
