Egypt's administrative court ruled on Saturday not to suspend a satirist's TV show accused of mocking the president and blasphemy, official news agency MENA reported.
The court has dismissed a lawsuit that was filed to suspend the political comic show "The Program" and the CBC channel which airs the weekly program.
On March 30, Prosecutor-General Talaat Ibrahim Abdullah issued an arrest warrant against satirist Bassem Youssef, author of "The Program," who was accused of mocking Islamist-oriented President Mohamed Morsi, uttering blasphemous comments on Islam and spreading false news that could affect social peace.
Although Youssef was freed on bail on three cases, the prosecution filed a new complaint against him on Tuesday for spreading rumors and false news and disturbing public tranquility after his last episode.
