A Cairo court has turned down a lawsuit demanding that a popular Egyptian satirist’s TV show be banned.
The Administrative Court said on Saturday that the lawsuit against Bassem Youssef’s “El-Bernameg,” or “The Program,” was dropped because the plaintiff did not have an interest in the case.
Youssef – known as Egypt’s Jon Stewart – frequently satirizes Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.
A lawyer filed the suit demanding the suspension of the license of the channel that broadcasts his show, claiming that it “corrupted morals” and violated “religious principles.”
