7am movement members given suspended sentence, other seven released

Sidi Gaber Misdemeanor Court of Appeals gave a one-year suspended sentence on Saturday over three charges to 14 female members of 7am Movement, the group of young girls that stages protests in support of ousted President Mohamed Morsy.
Other seven minor members were cleared and put under judicial probation for three months.
The court cleared them of one other charge.
During the court session, the 21 members chanted songs of the Muslim Brotherhood, while holding red roses inside the cage.
On 27 November, Alexandria Misdemeanor Court sentenced the 14 members to 11 years and one month in prison. It also ordered the seven minor members be put into juvenile centers for being under legal age, which is 18 years. They were accused of using force, joining a banned group as well as possessing and distributing flyers.
