CAIRO: Cairo Criminal Court heard in a Tuesday session prosecution witnesses in the case against Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie and 50 of his codefendants on charges of inciting violence through forming an operation room at the Rabaa al-Adaweya sit-in, Al-Masry Al-Youm reported Tuesday.
The suspects include Badie, Mahmoud Ghozlan, Omar Hassan Malek, Ahmed Abu Barak and Khairat el-Shater, according to El-Balad.
The prosecution accused the suspects of rioting, threatening peace and joining a banned group, Al-Wafd reported Tuesday.
The prosecution said that six of the defendants headed an outlaw group that aimed to cancel the Constitution, prevent state authorities from operating, violate citizens’ personal freedom and target public establishments, police and armed forces, Al-Masry Al-Youm reported in mid-June.
The case includes 32 suspects in custody and 19 currently being tried in absentia.
