The official Foreign Advice section of the UK’s profile on Egypt has updated its list of advice and suggestions to warn its citizens from expressing their negative opinions. ”Publicising strongly negative opinions about Egypt or making political comments, including about the President or security forces, can cause trouble with the authorities. In some cases, derogatory comments on social media have led to custodial sentences,” reads the advice from the official website. The page also features general advice concerning LGBT, street photography, alcohol consumption and observance of religion in Egypt. Earlier this month, the Egyptian Misdemeanor court sentenced Lebanese tourist Mona al-Mazbouh  to eight years in prison for posting a Facebook video defaming Egypt, as stated by her lawyer on Reuters. The court’s decision will still be appealed on July 29.
