 ALBAWABA - An Egyptian court in Mansoura has ordered the release of Patrick George Zaki from prison according to his family. His release comes after 22 months in prison. 

The social media is going wild about the news of the release. Zaki was taken into custody after he travelled back to Egypt from Italy on 7 February 2020. 

Zaki is a 30-year-old postgraduate student who had been studying at the University of Bologna in Italy. And his present release doesn't mean he is acquitted but will need to face the charges against him in the Emergency State Security Misdemeanors Court. 

He is a researcher at the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights.
