This article was amended on Monday, September 11 2017

This story previously stated that Ziad Doueiri had been released on bail based on information given to the media after his release. However, a judicial source told The Daily Star that it did not appear an official arrest warrant or charge had been issued against Mr. Doueiri and that his appearance before the military tribunal was for questioning related to the matter. The story has been updated to reflect this information without a copy of an arrest warrant being made available.
