CAIRO: Head of Al-Wasat Party Abou el-Ela Mady was released on a 10,000 EGP (U.S. $1,400) bail Wednesday pending investigations into his case.

Al-Wasat Party was founded in 1990  by dissidents of the Muslim Brotherhood who are known to be supportive of former president Mohamed Morsi.

Mady is charged with inciting violence in a speech to pro-Morsi protesters during clashes at Giza’s Nahda Square and in Bein El-Sarayat between opponents and supporters of Morsi.

In October 2013, the southern Giza prosecution remanded Mady and Muslim Brotherhood leaders Helmy el-Gazzar, Mohamed el-Omda and Abdel Monem Abdel Maqsoud who are accused of inciting violence and murdering protesters outside Cairo University at Nahda Square and Bein El-Sarayat following the ouster of Morsi.

Mady was also detained in July along with Al-Wasat Deputy Chairman Essam Sultan after Minister of Interior Mohamed Ibrahim ordered for their arrests.
