TV Critic of Egypt's Islamist President Morsi Freed

Monday, 01 October 2012 09:59 AM EDT

CAIRO — Security officials say the owner of a TV station on trial for incitement following his call for the killing of Egypt's Islamist president has been released after being briefly detained over allegations of theft of electrical power and bounced checks.

The officials say Tawfiq Okasha was released late Sunday after nearly 10 hours of questioning at a police station in Cairo's Nasr City district.

Authorities last month closed Okasha's TV station — Al-Faraeen," or "The Pharoahs" — which he used to launch scathing attacks on President Mohammed Morsi and the leader's Islamist group, the Muslim Brotherhood.

The officials spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters.
