Muslim Brotherhood leader referred to criminal court over violence

Cairo, Aug 11 (IANS) Egypt’s blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood’s general guide Mohamed Badie was referred to a criminal court on Tuesday.

Badie and few other Brotherhood members were accused of militant assembling, blocking public roads, murdering, targeting policemen, assaulting government institutions, practice of terrorist acts and weapons possession, Xinhua news agency reported.

The case was registered on August 14, 2013.

The prosecution said, the accused has organised sit-ins that terrorised the citizens and hindered the ordinary daily life in the capital.

Since the ouster of president Mohamad Morsi in 2013 in response to mass protests against his rule, hundreds of Brotherhood members have been facing trials over violence and murder.

Morsi, along with Badie on June 18, were sentenced to death over a mass jailbreak during the country’s 2011 political turmoil.
