The Judge in Ismailia Court ordered today to extend the preventive detention Sherif Gaber Abdel Azim, 20, a student in the faculty of commerce in Suez Canal University, for 15 days pending investigations. The student is being interrogated over the accusation of calling for atheism.

Sherif was arreted on October 26 by the security forces in Ismailia in connection with a complaint filed by the board of Suez Canal University; demanding to open investigations with the student on the charge of calling for atheism, after creating a group on Facebook. The student was remanded to the Prosecution, which ordered to take him into custody for 4 days. During the hearing of extending the preventive detention today, the judge decided to jail him for 15 days pending investigations.
