Egyptian judiciary grants electronic publications rights

Blogger Wael Abbas writes about the Egyptian court's decision to grant online publications – including blogs – the same freedom as print media. Wael reposted the text of the ruling, the final paragraph of which says (Ar):

إذ أن حجب موقع بالصحافة الاليكترونية هو من ذات جنس حظر صحيفة مكتوبة بجانب أن كل ذلك قيد علي حرية التعبير محظور دستوري
Blocking electronic journalism is the same as banning a print newspaper, besides, any restriction on freedom of expression is constitutionally prohibited.
